A is for... Angie & Artie
Children of George Maitland, who were being looked after by Clara Oswald. They became suspicious of Clara's eccentric new friend, and so did some research on the internet. After a time, they were able to find evidence of her travels through time with the Doctor. Some of the images even Clara could not recognise. Angie and Artie blackmailed Clara into letting them travel in the TARDIS. The Doctor took them to Hedgewick's World of Wonders - an abandoned amusement park on an alien planet. Whilst Artie was pleased to be here, Angie hated it - acting like a cliched bored teenager, of the type good writers should avoid. Artie played Mr Webley's Cyberman at chess, losing his sandwich. This proved to be an empty Cyber-suit, manipulated by a man named Porridge. However, the Cybermen were present on this planet and they abducted the children - intending to use them as their new Cyber-Planner. They then decided to use the Doctor instead.
Angie and Artie were taken home after the Cybermen had been defeated. Artie would later run rings round the Doctor, sending him off to play hide-and-seek whilst he sneaked out of the house.
Played by Eve de Leon Allen (Angie), and Kassius Carey Johnson (Artie). Appearances: The Bells of Saint John, The Crimson Horror, Nightmare in Silver, The Name of the Doctor (2013).
