New who

So there you go. It is the woman from 'Crossroads' (Freema Agyeman ) who is to join David Tennant as the new assistant taking over from Billie Piper.

Not of course that anyone remembers the disastrous and shortlived reincarnation of 'Crossroads'.

Weirdly she has already featured in 'Doctor Who' in last Saturday's episode…where she died. Not to worry though, she's coming back, but as someone different.

 Agyeman appeared as Adeola, who was killed by the Cybermen after sneaking off for a bit of nookie. I seem to remember Tennant pulling some long sticky stuff out of her ears after she was killed. I'm guessing she'll hold no grudges.

Freeema might have a somewhat exotic name in real life, but in the world of Who she has something decidedly more Home Counties and will play a character called Martha Jones. Martha Stewart was clearly busy.

Martha Jones is clearly a boffin, which is a step up from Billie who…I don't know, did she work in a laundrette or something?

According to the BBC she won't turn up until the start of the third series, so will not feature in the Christmas special. The Beeb said "we've got another surprise in store for that". Posted by Picasa

The BBC are just trying to tap into the sad sandels brigade who also go to Star Trek conventions, everyone I've heard speaking about this new version of Dr Who seems to think its pants...

It's brilliant actually, a perfect tea time children's TV show.

Shame Rosamund Pike couldn't do it.
