Another overcrowded TARDIS?
After months of rumours that Bradley Walsh was gong to be a new companion, today comes confirmation. He's not the only one, however, as also joining Jodie Whitaker will be Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole.
Now, the term "companion" can be a loose one. There have in recent years been characters who are best described as "recurring". The mothers of Rose, Martha and Donna cold never be described as companions, and Wilf Mott only really got that status in his final episodes. Danny Pink only ever really featured in the scenes back on Earth at Coal Hill School.
Therefore, I think it would be wrong to call all of these three "companions" until we see exactly what their roles are going to be.
