Jared Garfield and Lily Travers to star as Ben and Polly

After the surprise announcement of David Bradley playing the First Doctor in this year’s Christmas special, it seems only natural that his companions would be appearing too. Now we know who will be playing them.

As we saw in the trailer, the Doctor’s companion, Polly – originally played by Anneke Wills – will be played by Lily Travers, best known for playing Lady Sophie n Kingsmen: The Secret Service.

Meanwhile, Royal Navy seaman Ben Jackson – originally played by Michael Craze – will be played by Hollyoaks star Jared Garfield.
The two actors will feature alongside David Bradley and Peter Capaldi as the First and Twelfth Doctors, respectively, in this year’s Christmas special Twice Upon A Time.
