Pearl Mackie discusses the possibility of staying on for series 11

In an interview with ITV’s this morning, earlier today. Pearl Mackie was asked about her experience as part of team-TARDIS. When asked by Eamon Holmes, about Peter Capaldi’s departure by and whether she would like to stay on for series 11. She said:

“I don’t know, I mean it’s not up to me. Peter is such a wonderful Doctor, and I think the dynamic that he and I have playing The Doctor and Bill together is something that really works. That’s not to say it wouldn’t work with a different Doctor. But, yeah, it’s always a new adjustment, getting a new Doctor. Inevitably the dynamic is different because your different actors. And different characters.”

Pearl has quickly endeared herself to critics and fans alike, with some already dubbing the the best companion of the Nu-Who era. It certainly would be a shame to see her depart after one series.
