BBC to Announce New Doctor Who Companion This Weekend
After Jenna Coleman's Clara Oswald sadly left Doctor Who at the end of last season, fans have been mourning, but also wondering who the new companion for the Doctor will be. Now, BBC has just teased that they will reveal the casting on Saturday, April 23.

The announcement will take place during the BBC One Match of the Day Live half time (which is sort of an odd choice, but whatever). This should be approximately 10:45am Eastern time, and you can check back on this site for coverage.

Series ten of Doctor Who will still star Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, and will be the last series under Steven Moffat as showrunner. Broadchurch's Chris Chibnall will take over showrunning duties starting in series eleven, and while Capaldi has been asked to stay on after Moffat's departure, Twelve's fate is still uncertain.
