Doctor Who Season 8 Samuel Anderson as Danny Pink

“Doctor Who” Gets New Season 8 Regular, Samuel Anderson

“Doctor Who” Season 8 won’t be airing for a while but there is news from BBC that there is a new recurring character for the upcoming eighth season. Who exactly would this be? Clara’s Coal Hill School colleague, Danny Pink. Samuel Anderson will be playing the teacher and Anderson even commented on joining the world renowned series.

First Look at Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who Outfit

“I was so excited to join Doctor Who I wanted to jump and click my heels, but I was scared I might not come down before filming started! It’s a quintessential part of British culture and I can’t believe I’m part of it. It’s an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can’t wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo!”

Coal Hill School is returning for the fourth time since the show first aired. Those of us well traveled Time Lords may remember Ian Charleston and Barbara Wright. Steven Moffat commented on the “Doctor Who” history.

“For the fourth time in Doctor Who history, Coal Hill School is coming to the aid of the TARDIS. In 1963 teachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright accompanied the First Doctor. These days it’s the turn of Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. And very soon now, Sam Anderson as Danny Pink will be entering the world of the Doctor. But how and why? Answers are coming later this year in Peter Capaldi’s first series of Doctor Who!”
