Series 8 of Doctor Who has just got a new addition with actor Samuel Anderson joining the cast as teacher Danny Pink! Pink works at the same school as current companion, Clara Oswald and will be joining her, and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in the upcoming season.
Not surprisingly, Anderson seems quite enthusiastic about his new role, as he told the BBC:
“I was so excited to join Doctor Who, I wanted to jump and click my heels but I was scared I might not come down before filming started,” Anderson said.
“It’s a quintessential part of British culture and I can’t believe I’m part of it. It’s an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can’t wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo.”
