Tanya Reynolds, who plays the bisexual Lily Iglehart in the popular series, is tipped to be on the BBC’s radar and could be a perfect addition to Doctor Who.
It has been reported that they want her to play the new Doctor’s assistant when filming begins in April.
A source said: “If Tanya becomes the Doctor’s new companion, she will be a unique aide compared to the likes of Billie Piper or Jenna Colman.
“But that’s the whole point of Doctor Who being reinvented – they wanted to create a very different version of the time travel adventures.”

The insider added to The Sun: “Since they may be hiring a very different actor to play the time lord, it makes sense to choose an unusual companion for them.
“But it’s going to be a dilemma for Tanya, who may end up taking on a lesser role in the cast as she knows that being a companion can be just as long-term commitment as playing the part. as the Doctor.”
