Steven Moffat has described incoming companion Bill Potts as “sensational”, revealing that Pearl Mackie “owns the show”.

“She is quite different, much more grounded and earthy,” he told iNews. “She’s terrific. Very charming and engaging.”

Of course, Bill won’t be stepping aboard the TARDIS alone when Series 10 hits our screens later this month, as Matt Lucas will also once again be reprising his role as Nardole. The showrunner explained: “Nardole was initially in it for a few episodes but now he’s in all of them, one way or another.”

Discussing the casting of the Thirteenth Doctor, who will be picked by his successor Chris Chibnall, Steven affirmed: “Chris is going to be working with the actor for a few years. It’s a pressure cooker. It can be tough, so you need to choose your friend wisely. So long as it works for the good of the show, that’s fine. But whatever he does is absolutely fine by me.”

The next Doctor will make his or her screen debut in the Christmas Special, Steven’s last episode, in which Chris is given “a minute at the end” to introduce the newest incarnation.

The Doctor is BACK on 15th April – check out the BRAND NEW, full-length trailer…
