We now have our companion...

Quote :
Little-known actress Karen Gillan has been unveiled as the next assistant in Doctor Who.

The 21-year-old will star alongside new Time Lord Matt Smith in the new series, to be broadcast next year.

Gillan has already appeared in the drama, having played a Soothsayer in The Fires Of Pompeii in the last run.

"I am absolutely over the moon at being chosen to play the Doctor's new companion. - I just can't wait to get started," she said.

So much for casting against the romantic angle.
She is cute though. We'll see...

cool this is the first time a companion was in the show before (fires of pomp) of course as a different character-
still was hoping for sally sparrow but she looks promising.

well actually the brig was in the show before he was a companion- of course he played a different character...mr eye patch...
