Can the next companion diversify Doctor Who (please?)

Can the next companion diversify Doctor Who (please?)

sarah531:

There are many things to love about Doctor Who, but it’s hard to deny that it’s a lot, well, whiter
than it should be. The show hits 52 years old this November, and in all
that time there’s been 2 non-white companions and 0 non-white Doctors.
Not exactly a commendable ratio. But maybe there’s a chance to change
that when Jenna Coleman leaves the show this year and makes way for
someone new? If so (and here’s hoping) maybe one of these actresses
would fit the bill.

It’s a) my picks for the new companion and b) A LIST ARTICLE THAT ISN’T A SLIDESHOW, HOORAY
