Symphonic Spoilers?

With the baton beating a steady rhythm at the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular this weekend in Melbourne Steven Moffat has been leading his own orchestra after letting slip a few Series Seven details in the Spectaculars equally spectacular program.

Doctor Who chief writer Steven MoffatBlogtor Who reader Jason Murray has very kindly shared this information concerning the identity of the Doctors next companion:

Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary is coming. In Cardiff, we’re gearing up for the biggest, the best and the most ambitious season we’ve ever made. There will be shocks, surprises and heartbreak – the Doctor is about to say goodbye to his very best friends, Amy and Rory.

And then he’s about to say hello to someone very different – the Doctor is going to meet someone very new in the very last place he could ever have expected…”

Different is a very difficult word to pin down and of course, wide open to speculation. Does Moffat mean different for the show or different when compared to Amy and Rory? Are they physically different as in a different species or different in attitude towards what we usually expect in a companion?

Unless we finally get that grumpy alien gelatinous cube we’ve all be praying to see stacked next to the Doctor then its unlikely that it’ll be too different. After all the companion is our place-holder and its hard to sympathies with jelly.

As for that ‘very last place…’ well what would be more surprising than finding a companion who’s already on-board?

As usual share your speculations below.
