Doctor Who is in the market for a brand new sidekick, as current companions Amy and Rory Pond will leave the show during the next series in a "heartbreaking" fashion.

The show's head honcho Steven Moffatt broke the news after a screening at BBC TV Centre last night of the Christmas special.
"The final days of the Ponds are coming," he said. "I'm not telling you when or how, but that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end."
He also said that the Doctor was going to make a "new friend", but as far as anyone knows, the part has not been cast yet.
Matt Smith, the current incarnation of the Doctor, said he would miss Pond actors Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, who joined the show at the same time he took over from David Tennant.
"We had the most incredible journey. We took over the show and we've really had to hold hands and help each other through it," he said.
"So it's very disappointing, but one has to remember that this show is about change and regeneration, and that's what galvanises it and pushes it forwards." ®
I will pay
Me me me !
Hang on. I did post this Anon right ?
Shit, the wife !
As has been the case in recent series there will be an underlying story arc for the next season where in each episode Amy keeps on seeing the letter P and the numbers 4 and 5 appear on objects.
And thirdly ...
she's top totty.
We need a Terry Thomas "Ding-dong!" icon.
"I haven't cried this much since Adric died"
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Don't make it someone he's going to have a 'thing' with again! God how I hated all that Eleventh Doctor - Rose Tyler romance SHITE!
In my opinion the best companion from the new series has probably been Catherine Tate, for the lack of romantic involvement as much as anything else! Though she did turn out to be a pretty good actress too (I had my misgivings...).
Flameproof undies on.
