    Cant wait for a change, its become the Amy and Rory show. RTD freshened things up each season, be it new Doc or new companion. Although I would have loved another season with Donna and the Doc. Goodbye Ponds, hello new girl!

    Does this mean we could find out what episode Amy and Rory will leave in?
    I think itโ€™ll be around episodes 5-7.

      In relation to the revelation of the new companion, no, the whenabouts of Amy and Rory’s departure is still uncertain. Karen Gillan still does not know (either that or she’s bluffing for publicizing purposes – under strict instructions from Moffat). The only news worthy of unveiling in this “conference”/”press-release” is a) the actor/actress who shall be portraying the new companion, b) their character name (and, if we’re lucky, age) and c) when they shall come into the series (which ultimately does not contemplate when Amy and Rory will depart, given the new companion could come into the series whilst Amy and Rory are still acting as companions to the Doctor.

      Canโ€™t wait to find out who the new companion is, who would you have liked it to be booboo?

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:28pm

      Well, if itโ€™s not a household name, it could be anyone!!!

    • booboo

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:30pm

      not sure there were loads or rumours like Sophia Myles and Miranda Hart

    • The Eternal Dalek

      March 20th, 2012 - 9:31pm

      Not being a household name, we can immediately rule out Miranda Hart (not that she’d ever be considered (hopefully) for the show). Reasoning because she has only recently starred in “Call the Midwife” and hit sitcom “Miranda”, so she’ll be a current household name. Sophia has done other work in non-relevance to Doctor Who, so she may not be the companion, although why would Tom Spilsbury be meeting her and interviewing her for the next issue of Doctor Who Magazine, instead of another reporter such as Benjamin Cook? It all adds up, and the knots are tying themselves together now.

    I have couple of ideas as to who it could be. But as they used to say on Totally Doctor Who, only time will tell!

      Totally Doctor Who, whatever happened to that show???

      indeed

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:47pm

      It was a good show, did it get axed?

    • booboo

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:50pm

      yes, personally i miss the candid photos they did on the website, forget what it was called now

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:48pm

      I don’t know. It must’ve been cancelled for some reason. I loved it though. I’d like it to come back! Along with Confidential, of course!

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:49pm

      Yeah, why did the axe confidential though??? It was a fantastic show!

    • booboo

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:51pm

      all down to money i suspect but we dont know what they have planned yet this year

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:56pm

      Ah, not a household name! Better start thinking again then!

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:57pm

      I’d love to see something new, I’m sure they’ll be a documentry about the 50th Anniversary, and a new kids programme like Totally DW would be good too. I’d also like something to replace Confidential.

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:49pm

      quite a bit but not a house hold name here we are http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aisling_Loftus

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 20th, 2012 - 8:51pm

      Oh yeah, me and my family watched that ‘The Borrowers’ thing over Christmas, she could make an alright DW Companion.

    They are a “she” and “not a household name”… this comes from a “BBC insider” speaking to the Daily Mirror.

    I’ll wait to see who it is before I believe it.
