How tough is it to find the right “companion” to travel alongside the titular Time Lord in Doctor Who?
“Casting a new companion is every bit as difficult as casting a new
Doctor,” says the show’s executive producer Steven Moffat in a new
behind-the-scenes clip. “The role of companion is as central as the role
of the Doctor.”
The footage of Moffat comes from a never-before-seen bonus feature,
“Becoming the Companion,” which Fathom Events and BBC America are
screening in theaters alongside the season premiere of Doctor Who on April 17 and 19. In addition to Moffat, “Becoming the Companion” features contributions from current Who
star Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie, the actress who actually is
becoming the companion of Capaldi’s Time Lord this season. The premiere
episode of Doctor Who spinoff show Class will also screen on the two nights.
From FathomEvents.com, this has some nice behind-the-scenes clips from Friend from the Future (Filmed on April 13, 2016, the day before Peter’s birthday).
Imagine being fairly new as the Doctor’s companion and coming back from an exciting adventure, but catching his energetic smile falter when he doesn’t think you’re looking, leaving you to wonder just how much you really know about him.
don’t become too attached to any companions or different doctors. They just leave at one point in the show. Then you’re left with re-watching their goodbye scene, re blogging pictures of them on tumblr and CrYInG because they either ,lost their memory, regenerated or is currently stuck in an another fucking dimension.
