Even in a world filled with time-wimey things, there are some rules that apply no matter what happens. One of those is that the Time Lord known as the Doctor always has a companion that joins him on his travels through time and space. With a new doctor on the horizon in Ncuti Gatwa, it always was the question of who might take on that very role. Perhaps we’ll see a familiar face or even someone completely new. As it turns out, it was the latter.
Millie Gibson of Coronation Street fame has joined the upcoming 15th incarnation of the beloved Time Lord as his companion by the name Ruby Sunday. She’ll take on the role once the new season returns later next year. No details have been shared on what we can expect of her character or when she might show up in the story, especially with Gatwa not taking on the role directly after Jodie Whitaker‘s run.
There have been many iconic companions in the past and it’ll be quite interesting to see what she’ll bring to the table. Hopes are high with the new season as well, as it might shake things up. Not only is David Tennant briefly returning to take on the role of the Doctor, but it’ll have ea new home internationally on Disney+. There have been hints that Disney is also adding some investment into the series to help it grow; crazy to think given it’s been running for over 50 years by now. So, we’ll see what this new season might do to mix things up.
