Hot on the heels of Revolution of the Daleks, the BBC have run a quick trailer introducing new companion Dan played by actor and comedian John Bishop. Entitled Welcome to the Tardis it shows Dan and a work mat who is telling an what his horoscope says lies in wait for him. In the eight part series it’s not clear how many episodes he will appear in but I can’t wait to see what he brings. Head honcho Chris Chibnall says the role was specifically built for John who will star alongside Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill in the new series. With the Weeping Angels and Sontarans returning Dan will have his hands full alongside the Doctor and Yaz.
