ASD Doctor Who Companion

This petition had 10 supporters

Dear BBC,

Doctor Who is the world's longest-running science fiction series. However, in it's 54-year history, there has been no companion (let alone character) that has had ASD. Having a character with ASD, better known as Asperger's syndrome (the "milder" end of the spectrum) and/or Autism (the more "severe" end) could be a real opportunity for a variation in storytelling, and make the show that little bit more diverse. This is why I think it would be an excellent idea for the next companion, or at least some future companion(s) to have ASD.
