With rumours confirmed that Jenna Coleman is leaving and Clara Oswald may be dropped down a volcano by the end of Doctor Who season 9, the big question is who will be the Doctor’s next companion? It is a position with more candidates than the US Republican Presidential Primaries, and a lot more interesting.
My very unlikely pet theory is that Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor is actually a younger version of William Hartnell’s 1st Doctor, and that Maisie Williams will be a new version of Susan, the Doctor’s granddaughter, circle of time, alpha and omega, the end is the beginning and all that. A very far-fetched scenario.
Please remember, if Donna ever encounters, remembers or is even just slightly reminded of anything even vaguely Doctor Whoish, her head will literally explode from TARDIS particles. So Donna is out.
Here are some of the most popular candidates, and you can vote on them, or suggest your own in the comments.
