Huh, looks like the speculation was right then.

Although I'm sure she'd a good actress...my first reaction is disappointment, yet another modern day young girl, probably from London Rolling Eyes

I'm guessing they are aiming for a 7/Ace or 9/Rose dynamic...

Bill? short for Billie I guess?

I did think it has a vague 80's/90's look to it, but that might just me be reading too much into things...

There's nothing really to judge things on yet but I like the idea of 12 being a reluctant role model for a gobby out of her depth teenager, it's good to get more ethnic minority representation in the show as well.

Is it just me or was the Series 1 trailer very similar, I wonder if using a seemingly working class companion is designed as a way to soft reboot things again...

Bill? short for Billie I guess?

{{{No idea on the name- guessing Billie, but could be a diminutive of Roberta, or a version of Bobby, or even just a nickname, like Ace was.
Well Moffat left the series all ready for a reboot, expecting it to be his last, so it is primed ready for one.}}}

I wonder if Chibnall had a hand in casting? He's busy with Broadchurch so will have very little time to prep for series 11...

Tinfoil Hat time-backing up the 80's vibe he talks about going 'back to the future' in 2017 and Bill looks excited/surprised?

Someone pointed out on reddit that those do appear to be 80's badges...

I think I like it. Though it could be that running away from Daleks who can't aim and stopping posing, lit up from behind by from explosions reminds me of old times. Laughing

Now all I ask is that they drop the in love with the doctor thing - no it doesn't make it better that it's Moffat writing it, come on, even RTD stopped doing it.

{{{Moffat didn't do it with Amy, her love story was with Rory, and Clara fell for 11 but 12 has kept distance when it comes to that sort of thing- "No being sick. And no hanky-panky. Sorry, those are the rules."- 12th Doctor }}}}

Allow me to repeat; it doesn't make it better that it's Moffat writing it. Just trust me on this.

{{Yes really. They played with the idea of her infatuation and if she would reject Rory or not for the Doctor, like they did Rose/Mickey- but after 3/4 of series 5 it was over and she marries Rory at the end of that series and he joins the team full time from there on in. No love story with the Doctor at all.
Clara's confesses she fancies 11, and 11 is flirty with her as Vastra observes, but that's as far as that ever went as a story thing, and 12 seems to have no interest or inclination that way when it comes to his companions (and we know Capaldi is opposed to the idea anyway).
I hope we dont get any such thing of course, but I am not expecting we will anyway}}}

Remembered why I don't visit Facebook or youtube very often...people are already moaning she's the worst actress in existence and has ruined series 10 entirely...

I felt that way about almost every companion at first, there's next to nothing to judge her character on, so I don't see the point in leaping to conclusions.

I didn't feel that way about new companions. Either I loved them immediately or I disliked them in equal measure, I rarely stand on the fence, apart from Clara, and she didn't really appear on my radar she bored me so much.

Donna struck me as a very annoying gobby thicko in her first episode...and she developed into my favourite companion of New Who.

I think that's the point, a complete fish out of water working class girl being thrust into adventure with no prior baggage or stand out special skills, if the hints about the 80's are correct it means she'd be completely removed from the alien invasions and angst of New Who, just an ordinary girl who the Doctor isn't in love with, and not an all important impossible girl like Clara, frankly I think New Who spends too much time trying to make the companion interesting, although they are the audience surrogate it's the stories that are the main draw...

See? It happened with both. I was done with it after Rose. There is really no need for it.

{{There was no need for it with Rose. Or Martha. In my view the Doctor should never have that sort of relationship with a companion- Moffat era he never has. Amy may have toyed with the idea (and its all she did and for 3/4 of 1 series out of 3 series) and Clara it never really came up bar a few lines usually used for humour- I dont think when it comes to Doctor/companion romance Moffat era can be put in anything like the same category as RTD era}}}
