After weeks of speculation, RadioTimes.com has exclusively revealed news about Jodie Whittaker’s THREE new Doctor Who co-stars. The incoming Time Lord will be joined on her adventures by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.
And fans are VERY happy with the idea of an expanded Tardis team…

In particular, Whovians are excited at the prospect of The Chase host Bradley Walsh joining the sci-fi franchise…
Bradley Walsh being cast as a #DoctorWho companion is one of the most exciting castings in Who history. Wonderful lineup for 13.

Bradley Walsh is a fantastic companion to Jodie's #DoctorWho in my book. Great casting. Can't wait to see them together!

Although many couldn’t resist a cheeky joke about Walsh’s game show…
I just want to see 13 and her companions running away from some Daleks and Bradley Walsh turns and says…"The Chase is on!" #DoctorWho

It's just struck me how ironically funny it will be if Bradley Walsh does a #DoctorWho chase scene… ?

The diversity of the new time-travelling team has also been applauded throughout Whoniverse…

Basically, everyone is VERY excited to see them in action. Although we’ll have to wait until Autumn next year to see them on our screens. Still, if there’s one fandom accustomed to a long wait, it’s the Whovians.
The only bad news in all this for me personally is that #DoctorWho is starting (as predicted) next bloody Autumn ????
