Mr. Pink, In The TARDIS, With The Doctor

A colleague of mine once summed up the companion situation on the TARDIS thusly: "The TARDIS needs boys." And while that comment might be very narrowly scoped, the larger message is that the TARDIS works better when it's full. The Doctor plus one gets boring quickly, and in the modern environment tends to lead towards romantic entanglements. Steven Moffat seems to understand this (more so than Russell T. Davies ever did), and surrounds the Doctor with companions at every occasion. And so, with the arrival of the Dozenth Doctor later this year, along with Clara and the Paternoster Gang, the TARDIS will be home to Danny Pink, played by former Emmerdale actor Samuel Anderson.

Said Moffat: "For the fourth time in Doctor Who history, Coal Hill School is coming to the aid of the TARDIS. In 1963 teachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright accompanied the First Doctor. These days it’s the turn of Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. And very soon now, Sam Anderson as Danny Pink will be entering the world of the Doctor. But how and why? Answers are coming later this year in Peter Capaldi’s first series of Doctor Who!"

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
