Companion Speculation

The Guardian has come out guns blazing today with a stark declaration on who should be the Eleventh Doctor’s companion – and the suggestion is surprising.

Forget Lily Allen, Michelle Ryan or the lovely Carey Mulligan – Dan Martin of The Guardian’s choice is Emma Rigby, soon to be ex- of Hollyoaks.

Yes, I said Hollyoaks.

Emma Rigby is an attractive blonde who surprisingly for that particular show has something approaching range, having played a young girl experiencing the heart-wrenching turmoil of a serious eating disorder.

She also has a bit of steel about her which might – and I say might – be what gets her out of the realm of endless, dreary teen soap angst and into the world of serious acting.  What better way to do this than via Doctor Who?

Other suggestions in Martin’s article include Freema Agyeman, Zoe Tapper and BattleStar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff as a trans-Atlantic primary companion.

Christian Cawley


A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
