BBC Introduces Pearl Mackie As “Bill” – The New Companion On ‘Doctor Who’

Currently starring in the West End in “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”, Pearl Mackie is about to go from talented actor to world-wide phenomenon. Well, at least a year from now…

Already I’m reading commentary that her clothes are¬†reminiscent of Ace (Sophie Aldred), companion to Sylvester McCoy’s Seventh Doctor. ¬†Interesting. And isn’t it also interesting that on the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the BBC announces that the new companion’s name is… Bill?
