Rose Tyler leaves the TARDIS this weekend when Doctor Who
's twenty-eighth season (second season of the new series) comes to a close.
This morning the BBC officially unveiled the new companion for when Doctor Who
returns next year. Her name is Martha Jones and she'll be played by Freema Agyeman.
Agyeman was in this week's episode "Army of Ghosts" as a different character. She will join the TARDIS crew in the first regular episode next year, meaning the Doctor will be wandering the universe solo for the Christmas special later this year.Official press-release and a picture are on the BBC's web site
