BBC has officially announced and welcomed comedian and actor John Bishop onto the Doctor Who cast for Series 13 as The Doctor’s newest companion, Dan! Here’s what John had to say about his casting:
“If I could tell my younger self that one day I would be asked to step onboard the TARDIS, I would never have believed it. It’s an absolute dream come true to be joining Doctor Who and I couldn’t wish for better company than Jodie and Mandip.”
It sounds like he’s very excited to be able to be a part of the team, and even though the little clip they released to announced him joining the show is remarkably short, we’re still pretty excited to see what happens! Check it out below and enjoy!
