Has the Companion Search Begun?
Reports suggest that two actresses already involved in Series 4 have been shortlisted as potential future Doctor Who companions – and one of them is Georgia Moffet, daughter of Fifth Doctor Peter Davison.
The other is Felicity Jones, who has been cast in what is commonly termed “The Agatha Christie Episode”, and she is best known for her parts in The Worst Witch and Cape Wrath, alongside her role as Emma Grundy in long-running radio soap The Archers.
Moffet’s casting for a key part in the upcoming fourth season was announced in December, but the Daily Star claims that she may become a regular in the Tardis for the fifth season in 2010
However, according to the report she will have to fend off a challenge from 23-year-old actress Felicity Jones for the coveted companion role.
“Several names are in the frame,” a source told the tabloid, “but Georgia and Felicity are currently on top of the shortlist – both have their merits.”
Both good choices, although I know where my money is…
