Steven Moffat Chooses Some Miley Cyrus Looking Thing as Doctor Who's Next Companion

Despite a lot of rumors suggesting that "A Girl in the Fireplace" star Sophia Myles would become the next companion, Steven Moffat has gone in a different, weirdly younger direction with Matt Smith's new female partner, apparently in an effort to attract more Justin Bieber fans?

Her name is Jenna-Louise Coleman. She looks like this:

Believe it or not, she's actually 25. Here's what we know: Coleman will not take over until the Christmas special, which means that Amy Pond will be around a little while longer. In fact, Pond and Rory will leave the show in the fifth episode. One or both will probably die, teases Moffat. "It will be a final encounter with the angels and not everybody gets out alive -- and I mean it this time."

We also know, according to Moffat, that it's "a very, very different way for the Doctor to meet his new friend." We know little else. Moffat is mum. "Who she's playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters," Moffat said. "Even by the Doctor's standards, this isn't your usual boy meets girl."

Coleman has had acting experience with turns in three British series, "Waterloo Road," and "Emmerdale." She's currently in a TV series based on the Titanic.
