New companion?

Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Mon 21 Aug 2017 - 23:16

Posting it in this section as its not confirmed. The Mirror reports:

The first female Doctor Who will have a male sidekick old enough to be her father, it has been revealed.


Jodie Whittaker , 35, will be accompanied on her travels through space and time by former Coronation Street star and quiz-show host Bradley Walsh , 57.


Recent companions have all been played by young women, including Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman and Jenna Coleman.


But, having bravely cast the first ever Time Lady, new show boss Chris Chibnall decided to go one further with Walsh.


The actor and writer go back a long way.


In 2008, Chibnall was the lead writer on ITV’s Law & Order UK, which starred Walsh as DS Ronnie Brooks and ran for eight successful series.

Saw this article earlier. I actually wouldn't mind if it were the case, although I'm torn between how valid this claim is. Surely I'm not the only one who thinks that it's way too early to announce the new companion?
It's also worth mentioning despite how many newspapers are reporting this, it all originated from the Mirror.

I saw this on the front of the Mirror this morning, I'm a bit sceptical about it with it coming from the Mirror and all but I'd really like it if it were true,I think it could work.

I agree Dalek. It would be nice, although I'm not sure how real this claim is. After all, the Mirror were the same paper that reported Kris Marshall had been 'leaked' as the next Doctor.

To be honest, I think for the fans it will be difficult to view this whole "gender-reverse" scenario. We're used to a male Doctor who is the know-it-all and life-saver, and the companion being female and the one who tags along. It will be interesting to see this role-reversal, but at the same time it is going to feel slightly odd.

Going slightly off topic, but can the BBC please donate some copies of Doctor Who reference works to every newspaper in the land? I saw enough bad press when Jodie Whittaker was announced (I think the funniest was that Bill was a plane pilot), but, having bought the Mirror over the past few days to see the Bradley Walsh coverage unfold, it was both hilarious and enraging to see so many mistakes. For example, the groundbreaking news that Jamie was the first male companion in the show, and, the day after, the 'discovery' that Bradley Walsh was in SJA. Honestly, a quick Google does no harm.

HAHAHA typical press.  Jodie Whittaker is 36 and Bradley Walsh is 57, would not the BBC go for a younger companion so the kids can relate to them perhaps..

I'm getting the feeling this new era of Doctor Who is going to be less about relating to kids, and focusing more on the adult audience and the writers saying "Stuff what you guys want, we run the show, deal with it!". The obvious example being casting a female doctor which everyone knew would cause a divide. The biggest problem now is people who were against the female doctor are now starting to warm up to her, but are kind of stuck in between.

Its a family show. If they go for example of a young male companion the media will go on "hankie pankie in the Tardis" "Will they or won't they" ....
I hope whoever the companion is the relationship will be like the 12th Doctor & Bill
