As Doctor Who fans know well enough to make a touching tribute on the subject, when the Doctor rolls, he typically likes to roll with a nice-looking lady at his side, so that no one gets the wrong idea about all his colorful eccentricities. He also likes to roll in a police box that is actually a time machine/spaceship that is very spacious inside, but that's an issue for another nerdy day. We can discuss that at our weekly Doctor Who viewing party. What we're talking about now is how the Doctor's current companion, Amy Pond, is leaving with husband Rory in what's described as a "heartbreaking departure" later this season. The Doctor is going to need a new ladyfriend to become object of fan lust/fiction, and it looks like it's going to be Jenna-Louise Coleman.
The BBC has officially announced Coleman as Time Lord Matt Smith's new traveling companion, to join the series later this season "in a dramatic turn of events"--which sure sounds dramatic! Executive producer Steven Moffat would not reveal what this dramatic turn of events is, but in the press release, he does allude to the new companion's propensity for fast-talking and her inevitable future leading the Doctor on "his merriest dance yet." She may be a leprechaun? Moffat is not telling, because: "Who she's playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters." Does this guy know how to draw you back into a show you sort of stopped caring about or what?
