...Who Dr. Who's Next Companion Will Be.

Its her.

Jenna-Louise Coleman will accompany the doctor on his new adventures starting Christmas. I know its a long way away, but the BBC is currently filming the newest season of Dr. Who and she wasn't cast by the time all the writing was done. What I find curious is that the Doctor's current companion makes her exit in episode 5 (of a 13 episode season). So I'm not sure what will happen. The Doctor needs a companion (more on that later) so maybe he'll get a dog or something.

I've said it before and I know when I say it this time it won't make a difference, but watch the show. It's science fiction at its purist so I know a lot of people won't like it. One of the best single episodes of TV I've seen was from this show and it was a great stand alone episode to boot. Meaning they didn't go into the big story line the season follows or in depth into the Doctor's history. A simple, witty, and terrifying episode ('Blink'-S3E10 staring Carey Mulligan).

Skip this part if you aren't interested anymore:

The Doctor is the last survivor of an advanced race called The Time Lords. A long time ago they were involved in a war with the Daleks and he set off the last time bomb that destroyed both races. He travels in what's known as a TARDIS which can take him to any point in time or space. It's broken, which is why it looks like a police box. Normally it blends in to it's current surroundings and was shaped as the police box when it broke, so its stuck. He travels with a companion and a new one is picked every few years or so. Having spent thousands of years in isolation he went a bit mad. The human companion keeps him grounded and prevents him from getting too dangerous. He always finds trouble where ever he goes and ends up saving planets and lives by using his wits. He has 13 lives, and each time he dies he regenerates into a totally new Doctor. He has all his memories still but his looks and personality changes. This was just a clever trick producers used when an actor wouldn't commit to another season and they had to explain the switch in actors.

It could happen...
And that is what I learned today.
