The Doctor’s new companion is a Prince fan!

I only have time for a very brief post, but someone pointed this out to me and I simply have to pass it on.  In the publicity still released to announce the new companion, actress Pearl Mackie is wearing a Purple Rain shirt.  (Not the cover art; this picture was from the sleeve.  Kids, ask your parents what a record sleeve is.)  Whovians are now speculating that she may be from the 1980s, which would be a nice change of pace from all the contemporary companions, but I can’t help but wonder . . . did the Doctor somehow know?  About Prince, this year?  I mean, of course it’s coincidence, but . . . there is that magical moment of wondering, isn’t there?
