And the new Doctor Who companion is…

I’ve seen the press release, I’ve seen the name and I can announce that the next Doctor Who companion is… what’s that? It’s embargoed until midnight? Bugger.

Oh well. I can tell you a few things though:

  1. It’s one of the people listed here.
  2. The character, Martha Jones, hasn’t appeared yet
  3. Our various conspiracy theories were mostly right

So a big pat on the back for the various assembled geniuses here present in advance of the announcement.

UPDATE: Well, it wasn’t me that did it, but if you really want to know who the new companion is, there’s already a Wikipedia article about her. Those embargoes just don’t work like they used to, do they?
