Now this is only after watching the first two episodes of Doctor Who Series 10, but so far I am loving the new companion. Bill as played by the amazing Pearl Mackie is absolutely brilliant. So far the episodes have really turned around in my opinion. I have always loved Peter Capaldi, but Clara in particular was just lacking. Watching this new companion I am kind of realizing the difference. Clara was always a little bit lacking because she was sort of forced in to traveling with the Doctor and even though she enjoys going along there was a little bit of a lack of joy in some of her travels. In Bill we have found the joy of traveling with the Doctor again.
