New Companion - Faye Marsay...?

Just seen a supposedly "spoiler-free" review of 'Last Christmas' that drops a highly unsubtle hint that Faye Marsay who plays "Shona" in the episode will be the new Companion.

Certainly looking at her CV, she positioned in the same (by now predictable) area career-wise as Coleman and Gillan.

Approved.

I have screamed at the television for this actress to simulate coupling with another actor inside the television before.

I remember screaming orders, but I don't...

The character I wanted to put a baby inside Fay's character had a thick ring of salt around his bed, with about 60 half dissolved slugs and snails who had tried to penetrate that barrier and did fail.

(If you have never seen Fresh Meat, it's for the best, you probably couldn't handle the depth or wit.)

Yeah. I was thinking that. Second post... kind of odd.

Sounds good to me if it's true. I loved her in Pride.

Curious. I saw the exact same thread posted on the Big Finish forums. Now I'm wondering how many other sites Coop posted this on?

As for Faye, I also loved her in Pride. She's got acting chops for sure!

They're the only two I'm still a member of. Don't do a lot of posting anymore.

If true, it is interesting just how under the radar the character has been. BBC's gallery only has one image of her, showing her to be one of the characters at the Arctic base that the episode is set at (she's image 21). All the other characters, even the Arctic base characters get two images.

But then, I suppose aside from Nick Frost, all the other guest stars have been under the radar.

I absolutely could be reading them wrong and she'll turn out to be the Master in disguise or something but both Den of Geek and the Radio Times reviews hint at her having a much more important role than it appears at first.

That Den of Geek review:

watch out for Faye Marsay, seen earlier this year in the brilliant movie Pride, who gets a bigger role than her billing may immediately suggest. She's excellent here.
