Doctor Who, Sarah Jane, New Assistant & Gillian Anderson?
Before David Tennant departs the role of Doctor Who at year's end, he'll re-team with Sarah Jane Smith and K-9 for a two-part episode in the third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. The finale Tennant episodes of Doctor Who are shaping up to be epic with Sarah Jane, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, the Torchwood team, Donna Noble and The Master all returning for a big send-off.
On Friday, the BBC revealed that little-known actress Karen Gillan would portray the Doctor's new assistant in the 2010 series. Read more about her here. I'm a tad disappointed since there had been a rumor circulating that Hannah Murray from the show Skins would be the new assistant. Ah, well.
Best rumor circulating: Gillian Anderson will play the regenerated Rani, a renegade Time Lord and one of the Doctor's oldest nemesis, when the new series begins next year with Matt Smith as the Doctor. Gillian Anderson in Doctor Who? That might just be the ultimate geekgasm. Find out more about all things Who at the fabulous Tardis and Torchwood Treasures blog.
