Samuel Anderson talks Danny Pink

Actor Samuel Anderson, who plays new boy Danny Pink, has been chatting to the New York Post about his character and Doctor Who Series 8. Check out the highlights below and read the full interview HERE.
 “Before joining the school, he was a soldier in the British army. But he left, for reasons that will be revealed throughout the season. He’s an everyday sort of man, which I think is neat, especially pitched against such a massive hero as the Doctor. He’s sort of a straight man.”

Will he be joining them in the TARDIS, then? Looks that way. “I would say I become a companion for the companion,” he says.

“There’s a cute dynamic between them,” Anderson says of his character and Clara. “The Doctor rolls with it. He wants them to be happy."
Anderson made his debut in the most recent episode, Into The Dalek, check out the Doctor Who Series 8 Guide HERE for more news on the upcoming episode.
