New Doctor Who Character Sets Stage for Barbara and Ian-Like Dynamic Next Season

We’ve got a brand new recurring character on Doctor Who! Say hello to Samuel Anderson, who will play Danny Pink! Danny will be another teacher from Coal Hill School, same as Clara Oswald.

But old-school Whovians know Coal Hill School was also the place where the first Doctor’s companions, Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton, taught a young Susan Foreman, the Doctor’s granddaughter. So what does that bode for the upcoming season? Barbara and Ian became quite close following their time on the TARDIS—can we expect the same for Clara and Danny?

One thing’s for sure, we’re more than happy to see Clara get someone to bounce off of!
