The BBC has announced the casting of a new recurring character on Doctor Who. Actor Samuel Anderson will be playing the role of Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School whom works alongside The Doctor’s current companion, Clara Oswald. This will be the first full series with the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi. (The Brits call TV seasons “series” over there, because they have to be contrary with their use of the English language and all that.)

Anderson is best known in Britain for his portrayal of Ross Kirk on the ITV1 soap opera Emmerdale from 2007 to 2009. Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara, was a fellow cast mate of Anderson on the series.

Clara, as you might recall, took a teaching job at Coal Hill school in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary  special,  “The Time of The Doctor.” Longtime Whovians will recall the school was where teachers Ian Chesterson and Barbara Wright first met mysterious student Susan Foreman in the first Doctor Who episode, “An Unearthly Child.” Their investigation of her past led them to her grandfather, the First Doctor (William Hartnell), and his police box-disguised TARDIS.

There’s no word if Anderson’s character, Danny Pink will end up traveling through time and space with The Doctor and Jenna, or how big of a role the setting of Coal Hill School will play in the new series.
