Peter Capaldi has revealed that the wait is almost over for fans to discover the identity of his brand new companion.

Speaking to Radio Times to promote the UK release of Series 9 on DVD and Blu-ray today, the Twelfth Doctor teased that the search for his incoming co-star went “pretty well” and added that the long awaited announcement will hit the airwaves “fairly soon”. “I don’t know whether they’ll be involved in this year’s Christmas Special,” he explained. “The story we’re doing with this particular companion is so specific, but you’ll find out soon enough what we’re doing with it.”

Speculation surrounding the latest companion has been ongoing since Jenna Coleman bid farewell to her role as Clara Oswald last year, with former EastEnders star Rakhee Thakrar recently emerging as the new favourite to step aboard the TARDIS for Series 10 in 2017.

    @Linda Rackstraw Technically, No. He is actually the 14th or the 1st of a new cycle.

    @Linda Rackstraw
    He is the 13th Doctor in actual fact (unless you count the 10th Doctor’s wasted regeneration, which would make him the 14th Doctor, but most people don’t), but as the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors were known in that order years BEFORE John Hurt and the fact that he renounced the title during the Last Great Time War, he’s normally just called The War Doctor.

    As such, it’s Doctors 1-12 and The War Doctor.
