Can't believe this isn't top of the forum - does anyone realise that the new companion in Doctor Who 2017 is going to be revealed tonight during Half-Time at the FA Cup Semi Final on BBC1???

Rakhee Thakrar (Shabnam on EastEnders) was rumoured, so I'll go with her. She'd be fantastic IMO!

Almost certain it's Rakhee Thakrar. Look at her recent Twitter followings!

I'll throw Maddy Hill into the mix.

I think there's a high chance of Pearl Mackie.

Although we must remember these people are actors so are bound to follow other actors, her recent Twitter followings include Freema Agymen and Jenna Coleman

Hmm, hadn't thought of that. I suppose the timing lends some credence - couldn't technically announce her until she'd been seen to leave* Eastenders (though no doubt her leaving the Square has been all over the gossip and telly mags for weeks).

Unless, of course, they've sold us a dummy and it's actually going to be Himesh Patel (Tamwar) Wink

*and it was a proper leave, with Julia's Theme and everything.

Well, it's not like it has to be matched to existing footage like the previous recreations - every episode is wiped and will be animated.
