Peter Capaldi's new Doctor is about to get another companion, albeit part time. "The History Boys" and "Emmerdale" star Samuel Anderson has been set to join the upcoming eighth series of "Doctor Who".

Anderson will play the recurring role of Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School where companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) also teaches.

Filming recently began on the fourth episode of the new series which is scheduled to go to air later this year.
