Bradley Walsh to be Jodie Whittaker’s companion in the new Doctor Who?

Rumours are abound that Bradley Walsh is set to be revealed as the new companion to Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who. The 57 year old actor is best known for his roles as Danny Baldwin in Coronation Street and the lead role of DS Ronnie Brooks in Law & Order: UK, as well as hosting ITV game shows The Chase and Cash Trapped.

The Mirror broke the story stating they have a source who has notified them that “Bradley is super excited to be joining the cast of Doctor Who in such a key role. It means that his schedule over the coming months will be jam-packed – so he won’t be able to continue with the full range of programmes he currently makes for ITV.”

Walsh is no stranger to the Doctor Who universe, in 2008, he appeared in two episodes of  The Sarah Jane Adventures entitled The Day of the Clown, where he played a sinister entity that fed off other people’s fear. In his role, he played three parts of the same ego – a sinister American-sounding clown called Odd Bob, a mysterious European-sounding ringmaster called Elijah Spellman, and the infamous Pied Piper of Hamelin.
