The announcement of new Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan got me thinking.
Firstly was who is she? Relatively unknown, but that’s no bad thing – trust in the Moff to pair he right actress up with Matt Smith.
Secondly, I hope she is not a modern day girl from London again – after Billie, Freeman and Catherine, I think we have all had enough of that. Yes, I know they are supposed to be the everywoman to whom we can relate, but by now, most people watching the show are quite happy relating to a 900-year-old alien. Make her from the past, from another planet – whatever you like.
And finally, doesn’t she look like a young Catherine Tate? My colleague at work, @grahambandage pointed it out to me, to the point where he rushed across the office to blurt it out.
Buy hey – she’s Scottish! So what? So was Davey T and you’d never have known it.
Given the fact that Catherine Tate is in the final episodes – in whatever form – and her previous Time Lordiness as the DoctorDonna, might RTD & the Moff be planning a double regeneration?
Probably not, but as you know, I love driving myself crazy with this stuff. If I am honest, I think Moff will want a clean break, but you never know with Who.
