Pearl Mackie is the new Doctor Who companion, in the year’s second biggest Doctor Who news. Unveiled, strangely, during a football match, the actress had her first outing as Bill in a short two minute trailer of knowing meta Dalek-mocking nonsense. But what did we think of it?
PLUS: We talk everything from Star Wars to Torchwood, via Monty Python.
Your hosts this week are James McLean, and Christian Cawley.
