In today’s online edition of The Sun’s TV Biz, the paper is running a poll asking which of Doctor Who’s companions is “the sexiest” out of five contenders…
So is it Amy Pond, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble or new sidekick, Clara Oswin?
We of course briefly met Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman) in the debut episode of series seven which aired on Saturday, which came as a pleasant surprise since we had thought that Clara would be introduced in the Christmas special.
You can click here to go vote in the Sun’s poll, but I figured we might have one of our own here – via the comments box – to see which of these lovely ladies you guys find the hottest!
Amy, who’s played by Karen Gillan, is of course still featuring on the show, but she will make her departure during this series… Read more & comment »

Doctor Who star, Freema Agyeman started off in small ITV soap, Crossroads and has admitted that she may one day consider returning to her soap roots.
The actress told MSN: “You know soap was my first telly job and I learned massive amounts.
“When I got onto set, it was the terms, they’d say ‘Freema, we’re gonna do a wild track now’ and I remember thinking, with my heart pounding ‘I don’t know what that means’, and then you’d get to your dressing room and there’d be a big pile of rewrites so you’d have to learn how to pick up lines quickly.”

Freema Agyeman will be returning to Doctor Who this year.
Her character, Martha Jones will be appearing in the four TV specials of the show which will mark the end of David Tennant’s time on the show.
A Doctor Who insider told The Sun: “Freema’s on board. It’s early days so it’s unclear what exactly Martha will be up to in the new show.

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecution Service who prosecute the offenders.

Freema Agyeman will not be appearing in the third series of Torchwood as planned as she has accepted a role in a new ITV drama ‘Law and Order.
A source told The Sun: “This has really mucked things about. We’ve had to go back and re-edit loads of scripts because she’s not going to be in it.
“[ITV is] the Beeb’s bitter rival, so the fact she’s going over there to star in a big new project has not gone down well at all.”
I didn’t get a chance to review The Shakespeare Code last week, although I really wanted to. I had a big problem with that episode of Doctor Who. I’d seen it before.
Let me give you some clues:
- The Doctor and assistant travel to the past.
- They meet a major literary figure.
- Plot centres around aliens who want to subvert the Earth for their own end.
- These aliens appear as a supernatural phenomena.
Not clear yet? Well, in Series 1 of our beloved, revamped Doctor Who, there was an episode called The Unquiet Dead. In this episode, The Doctor and Rose travel back in time and meet Charles Dickens. At the same time, an alien species called the Gelth are trying to use a cross dimensional rip to cross over to Earth and take over the world.
These Gelth appear – in the lingo of Dickensian-era Cardiff – as ghosts.
So, in The Shakespeare Code, The Doctor and shiny new assistant Martha travel back in time. To Shakespeare-era London no less.
Guess what? At the same time, an alien species called the Carrionites (who appear as witches) are trying to subvert Shakespeare’s magical words in order to….open up some kind of cross-dimensional rip and let loose their species upon the world!
Anyone else feel a bit ripped off right now?
