Good. I watched her in Broadchurch, and she definitely deserves good pay. The fact that the BBC have bridged the gap in male/female pay is only a good thing.

Yeah Nardole was great. He was one of the few companions that actually knew what was going on most of the time.

If you want to get a taste of the sort of bombastic speeches we might hear from her role as the Doctor, watch this vid.

I'm so excited!

And if they ever do a multi doctor story she already has practice arguing with Doctors

I wonder what accent they are going to go with. I do love her natural accent but maybe they will go with something less distinct like how they had Tennent lay off his natural Scottish accent..

I'd be very surprised if they didn't cast a single companion: a 20-something year old man.

i miss Bill, i hope we see her again in the future. i was glad she was just a companion and didn't have some prophesy around her like claire, donna and rose.

From a story perspective, I'm not sure I'm going to be happy with this yet.

From an entertainment perspective though, it's going to be fresh and a lot more interesting. Might as well be positive about it since it's happening. I'm no where near as excited as I was for Capaldi as the Doctor but that would probably be true for whoever would be picked.

Now would be the best time to bring back Captain Jack. Maybe even for a series, not going to be happen but it would be less odd than the Doctor suddenly picking a male companion.

One thing I miss is the audio commentary that used to be put up on the BBC website during the Davies/Gardner period. Unlike Doctor Who Confidential, which was big enough to be vulnerable to cost cutting, this was a straightforward commentary from those involved in the production of each episode.

Let's not throw shade at Frasier. The Moons all having different accents despite being from the same area and no one ever mentioning it was always genius.

It was like this weird thing which turned Frasier into a Twilight Zone sporadically.

Sean Bean (Ned Stark) and Mark Addy (King Robert Baratheon) speak with their natural Yorkshire accents in Game of Thrones. Contrast this with the accent of Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). Although Headey's father is from Yorkshire and she spent much of her childhood there and could probably speak with that accent, in the show she plays a woman from a southern kingdom of Westeros and uses a generic, vaguely southern English accent which sounds a little posh to English ears.

The actress who played that part was raised in East Grinstead, a very long way from the North. Her accent wobbles quite a lot but evidently she was trying for Manchester (not in Yorkshire, but northern).

Frasier's one of my favourite shows but accurate English accents are not its strong point. I do like the episode where Niles goes to England to get Daphne's dad and ends up in a pub from 1908.

I have never heard Jodie talk before, never seen her before really, but my gawd she has the cutest accent...and when she talks ( on the BBC interview in the Doctor Who FB page) she's like so animated and cute...golly gee.

And then she appears on Doctor Who and she's the meanest person ever...lol.

I am going to be extremely bummed if they have her do a straight English accent for Who.

They should pay him to overdub some classic episodes in broad Yorkshire accent: would make for delicious special editions.

Which means she is perfect for the character.

A good doctor can do both "cute old granpa who can't hurt a fly" and "i will muder you in ways that would make a mexican cartel afraid" when the situation requires

I was actually thinking the other day that a great Easter Egg for the season Blu-Ray would be to get Nick Briggs to overdub all of Bill-as-human's dialogue from the last episode in the sing-song Cyberman voice - strictly speaking, that's what they'd be hearing, after all...

I think there's an implication that the Cybermen "translate" Bill's dialogue like the Dalek speech in Witch's Familiar as well, isn't there? As hilarious as it would be to hear Briggs do it word-for-word...
