Earlier this week we revealed the new Doctor Who that will be taking David Tennant’s spot after he turns in his sonic screwdriver at the end of 2009. Now attention is turning to his companion. Who will be the lucky lass to join him as he travels across space and time?
Well, According to NME, the BBC is considering British singer Lily Allen as the new companion for Matt Smith’s eleventh Doctor.
Here’s what Piers Wenger, the Executive producer of the show had to say to the Daily Telegraph:
“Having got the casting of the Doctor out of the way, the companion role is where we will be looking next. Someone terribly exciting like Billie Piper, who was at the beginning of her acting career but who had a profile for other reasons, would be great. We are looking for someone whose light can burn brightly.”
