Back here I complained that Dr Who was currently prettier than his assistant. Clearly someone at the BBC has been paying attention. Here’s one of several poorly lit publicity photos* of David Tennant and his new sidekick, half-Iranian, half-Ghanian Freema Agyeman:

David Tennant and Freema Agyeman

Having failed to heed the make-up artist’s warnings, David and Freema discover the hard way the true meaning of the hair gel’s claim to offer “exxxtreme holding power”

The future’s bright. The future’s off-white.

(I’m also pleased to note that, before bagging this role, Freema had the jobbing British actor’s double to her name: appearances in both Casualty and The Bill.)
