This is three days in a row that I've had Doctor Who news. Doctor Who Online has announced the new companion for the new Doctor (Matt Smith). Of course the companion is female. Twenty-one year old actress Karen Gillan will be the next passenger in the TARDIS in spring 2010.
Lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat said:
We saw some amazing actresses for this part, but when Karen came through the door the game was up. Funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy. Or Scottish, which is the quick way of saying it. A generation of little girls will want to be her. And a generation of little boys will want them to be her too.
What do you think? Does she seem like a typical "companion"? Apparently the actress had a small role in "The Fires Of Pompeii" episode. Has anyone seen her in anything else? Apparently she's a bit of an unknown. I guess that could be a good thing.
