I’m not sure where this rumor originated, but there has been low-level buzz that DOCTOR WHO will add a male companion to the TARDIS in series eight, when Peter Capaldi takes over as the Doctor. The newcomer is further tipped to be a potential love interest for Clara (Jenna Coleman).
And we’ve already seen the rumored new guy: Tom (Tristan Beint), the Coal Hill School teacher who informed Clara that she had a message from her doctor. Well, Tom did seem quite concerned about Clara’s health…
According to DrWhoTV, Beint is playfully feeding the rumor. When asked about it by a follower, he Tweeted:
“Are you sure Tom could ever compete with a Time Lord though..? Oho… Keep watching.”
He further added: “Pass that on to Mr Moffat…”
