Given that we now know that Karen Gillan will be leaving Doctor Who soon, it occurs to me that if we’re going to follow tradition our hero will soon need a new companion. Since we’re coming up to Anniversary time it seems more important than usual that whoever they cast should be up to snuff. Strong. Reliable. Virtuous. Capable of great feats.
Anniversaries are a time to look back, to reflect on our triumphs, learn from our mistakes and stride forward fully informed into a new and shining future. Why not someone who has had dealings with The Doctor before?
I know of someone. Someone who will never let the side down. Someone possessed of a loyalty which will never waver. Someone whose only wish will be to have a gigantic dog basket in the console room to call his own.
Garm… your time has come. Make it happen, Mr Moffat. I know you’ll do us proud.
