Doctor Who casts Heartstopper star Yasmine Finney as the new Rose companion character for the long-running show’s 60th anniversary. Originally created by Sydney Newman, C.E. Webber and Donald Wilson, the BBC series revolves around the titular extraterrestrial Time Lord as he ventures throughout the universe in his time-traveling space ship the TARDIS with a companion. Throughout the series, Doctor Who finds himself pitted against a variety of enemies, mostly notably the Daleks, their creator Davros, the Cybermen and The Master.
With nearly 60 years under its belt, Doctor Who has seen multiple actors lead as the titular hero, explained in the series by his consciousness transferring into a new body when the current one is too badly harmed to heal normally. Some of the actors known for portraying The Doctor have included William Hartnell, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi. After portraying the role for three seasons, Jodie Whittaker, the first female Doctor, is departing the series and now the cast is growing for Doctor Who‘s future.
