It has been rumoured from Tweets for a while, but it looks like Sophia Myles may be the new Doctor Who assistant!
From her tweet earlier "I'm off to meet @TomSpilsbury for tea and major Dr Who chat this afternoon."
So after Steven Moffat announcing Doctor Who fans should follow her on Twitter, then this, it looks like she is at least in Doctor Who Series 7, and possibly playing the new assistant. This is of course unconfirmed, but looks very possible, so we still need to see how this plays out!
Sophia Myles has previously played Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson (Madame Pompador) in The Girl in the Fireplace, and was romantically involved with David Tennant! The new assistant is rumoured to be not from Earth!
Although the picture at the top is of Sophia, I doubt she will be dressing like that, but I am a sexist pig, sigh... :)
Thanx to RedDalek for the heads up :)
