Doctor Who's New Companion Pays a Subtle Tribute to Prince

Aw, didn't notice this before. Both awesome and bittersweet.

Pearl Mackie will play "Bill," the series' latest companion. She will replace Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, who exited at the end of Series 9, and joins Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.

...And, with everyone still in shock over the recent passing of pop culture icon Prince, Mackie took it upon herself to honor the artist in her first official publicity photos, as noticed by Hi-Fi Color founder Brian Miller. That's the interior sleeve to the Purple Rain LP, as pictured above, featured on "Bill's" t-shirt.
