Could Revolution of the Daleks End on a Cliffhanger, or a Companion Departure?

Mandip Gill, who plays the Thirteenth Doctor’s companion, Yasmin Khan, might have suggested that the next episode of Doctor Who could end on a cliffhanger.

Filming for the festive special, Revolution of the Daleks, concluded before the UK went into Coronavirus-related lockdown. When asked about the episode, and if/when she’ll return for recording, Gill hints that the ending is uncertain:

“It’s all very secretive. I obviously know where it’s left off but it’s so ambiguous that it could go any which way. But with everything that’s happening, I’ve put no pressure on them for an answer.”

This might also suggest that the fates of the Doctor’s companions – Bradley Walsh’s Graham O’Brien and Tosin Cole’s Ryan Sinclair, alongside Yaz – are up in the air by the episode’s conclusion.

We don’t know who is returning for Series 13, apparently apart from Jodie Whittaker and showrunner, Chris Chibnall. In fact, we don’t know much at all about what’s coming up; hardly a surprise, considering Series 13 isn’t due to air on BBC1 and BBC America until at least 2021.

Revolution of the Daleks, of course, itself follows on from the cliffhanger of The Timeless Children, in which the Doctor found herself in prison…

So what do you think? Will we say goodbye to one or more companions in Revolution of the Daleks? Or would you like to see any of them stay on for Whittaker’s third full season as the Time Lord?
