Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
this plus the next companion is queer and it’s not a source of humour
Or Martha (save the unfortunate forced unrequited-love subplot that we could’ve all done without). No but seriously I’ve only seen three episodes of the current season and every single episode has given me some seriously skeevy feelings about the Doctor’s relationship with Clara.
