Doctor's new companion [Jun. 1st, 2009|11:51 am]

Karen Gillan

I think I'm turning British-ese. On the heels of our report that BBC America is bringing new batches of Doctor Who and Torchwood to U.S. shores this summer, we now have news as to who will be playing the new Doctor Who's companion in Season 5.

Relative unknown Karen Gillan has been tapped to accompany incoming Doctor Matt Smith on the TARDIS' next series of adventures, premiering on the BBC in 2010.

"I am absolutely over the moon," the pretty Scot tells BBC News of her good fortune. "I just can't wait to get started."

Gillan is not a complete stranger to the Whoniverse, having played a soothsayer in the Season 4 episode "The Fires of Pompeii."

She also may be familiar from her run on the U.K. sketch series The Kevin Bishop Show.

Incoming show runner Steven Moffat says that although they auditioned a bevy of "amazing actresses," as soon as Gillan walked through into the room, "the game was up. [She's] funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy."

The choice of Gillan to accompany Smith is fitting, as Smith is also a relatively fresh face to audiences. In fact, Smith is the youngest actor to ever play Doctor. He succeeds David Tennant, who last Lords over time in the five specials arriving on BBCA starting this summer.

New actor to play Doctor Who.

I'm not going to judge him until I see him.  That being said, this actor is 26, I'm expecting the next doctor to be a zygote. 

Or maybe the doctor gets younger as he gets older like Benjamin Button.

now i can understand wanting to be a positive gay role model, but this is a bit odd lentgh to go to prove gayness, why cant people just accept the born that way fact? why is he undergoing this scrutiny? it's a little insulting i think.


Barrowman Has Gay Test

15 July 2008 5:08 AM, PDT

Openly gay actor John Barrowman has undergone a series of tests to determine the cause of his homosexuality, as part of a new documentary.

The Dr Who star is fronting new series The Making Of Me, in which he undergoes experiments to determine if he was born gay or whether his sexuality was affected by his environment.

And he is now urging the parents of gay teens to watch the programme to better understand their children.

He says, "When I first started in my career, I thought I'm here to entertain people, nothing more.

"But as I've got older, my career has gone in a different direction... Now I get a lot of letters from young people who are either in the position of being shunned by their families or are fearful of coming out.

"I thought I could help those people and help everyone understand. It's a question: Is it nature or is it nurture?

"If you're a parent with a gay child, watch it."

The Making Of Me airs on the U.K.'s BBC One on 24 July.

Grew up watching Doctor Who, starting like most people with Tom Baker.    My favorite Doctor is Colin Baker because he was only one that was actually clinical insane.  Pertwee is a very close second.  My favorite companions are: Ace, Donna, Tegan, Romana II, Jack, Sarah Jane and Jo. 

I like Tennent but I don't love him.  I like Eccleston better. Regardless, he is still the Doctor, therefore I will defend him!

If as rumors say Tennent is leaving, Eddie Izzard dammit!

Torchwood. Martha Jones. She seems like the perfect replacement for (asshole) doctor Owen. You think it'll happen? Or will they get some new (asshole) person? :)

OK, just a slight bit of the old ball rolling.

I grew up with Pertwee. He's MY doctor and always the 1st one who comes to mind when the name is mentioned.

This whole new concept of the young "hawt" doctor with the multiple love interests is..er..weird for me.

It's not the end of the world or anything but this new concept of the doctor as OMFG squeee! fangirl commodity is..er..messed up.

Anyone else feeling this?

Also, as a complete aside, I really have no idea if there's any truth to this at all but I'd love to see Eddie Izzard as the doctor. Love. It.

Cake or death. :)
