Watch new Doctor Who companion Pearl Mackie in her first video interview

It's safe to say she's excited...


It’s safe to say Pearl Mackie is excited about becoming the new Doctor Who companion…


“Amazing”, “absolutely mad” and “incredible” are just some of the adjectives she uses to describe the experience so far in this first video interview, and who can blame her?

And she hasn’t even had time to properly digest it yet: “When I get home, the reality will sink in and I’ll probably explode or something!”

Don’t expect any major revelations here but Pearl’s hoping her character Bill “gets to have a bit of fun, go on some exciting adventures – and bring a bit of attitude into the TARDIS, maybe.”


Like there wasn’t enough of that already from the Doctor…
