Karen Gillan: 'Doctor Who' gets his new companion

Karengillan_290 As writer/producer Steven Moffat takes the reins of the "Doctor Who" series, the 11th incarnation of the Time Lord -- Matt Smith -- is getting a new traveling companion in the form of 21-year-old Scottish actress Karen Gillan.

"Funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy. Or Scottish, which is the quick way of saying it," is how Moffat describes her. "A generation of little girls will want to be her. And a generation of little boys will want them to be her too."

The new season will begin filming this summer and premiere on BBC one next Spring. No word as to when it will make its way stateside.
