Another New Face in Peter Capaldi’s TARDIS? Samuel Anderson Joins ‘Doctor Who’

It looks like Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi won’t be the only new face on our television screens when Doctor Who returns for Series 8 later this year.

The BBC has announced that actor Samuel Anderson will be joining the cast as “recurring character” Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill Secondary School and colleague of companion Clara Oswald. Anderson has done quite a bit of British TV, including a stint on popular soap Emmerdale opposite current Who companion Jenna Coleman as well as roles in Gavin & Stacey and The History Boys.
