Millie Gibson Revealed as latest Doctor Who Companion
During last night’s broadcast of Children in Need it was revealed that Coronation Street’s Millie Gibson will join the next season of Doctor Who as the Doctor’s latest companion.
The 18 year old from Manchester joins a long list of beloved actors to accompany the timelord on his adventures with Millie set to star alongside the 15th incarnation of the Doctor played by Ncuti Gatwa. Speaking on the announcement Gibson said
“I am beyond honoured to be cast as the Doctor’s companion. It is a gift of a role, and a dream come true, and I will do everything to try and fill the boots the fellow companions have travelled in before me.”
Ncuti and Millie are rumoured to begin filming in December later this year with broadcasts of their season reportedly set to air on BBC and Disney Plus around the holiday season next year following the shows 60th anniversary which will see the return of David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
We certainly can’t wait to see how Gibson and Gatwa’s chemistry unfolds and we eagerly anticipate the next update on the brand new season of Doctor Who!
