The story goes that the BBC will be unveiling the new Doctor Who companion on Wednesday (three days earlier than we estimated!) at a specially arranged press conference.
So, it really means the end of Amy Pond has occurred in the crazy, time-shifted world of Doctor Who production and we’re now moving onto the brave new era of… well, someone.
In just a few hours time we’ll know who. It might be Sophia Myles (who may have returned from her skiing trip to Switzerland after hanging out with the crew in Spain) or it might be someone else entirely.
Perhaps it’s the Tenth Doctor, or an android Master. It might even be me.
The truth is, only a few people know, but in 24 hours time we’ll know an awful lot more.
But until then: who would you like to see travelling with the Doctor? Any actor, actress, singer, sportsman, author or historical figure – it’s up to you!
