Carol Vorderman fans on Twitter want her to be the new Doctor Who assistant

Could you see ex Countdown star stepping up to help a Time Lord?

Some of her most dedicated fans have told Carol Vorderman on Twitter they reckon she could be in Doctor Who.

It was recently announced that current Time Lord Jodie Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall are exiting the BBC series.

Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole have also made their final appearances as Jodie’s Doctor’s companions.

But now some of Carol’s followers reckon she should be in the frame to take over as an assistant in the Tardis.
