It's par for the course in Doctor Who for the hero himself to appear at unexpected times, but his latest companion seems to be making an attempt to upstage the Time Lord.
Jenna-Louise Coleman surprised fans of the BBC1 drama by popping up in the first episode of the new series four months before her expected debut as the Doctors latest sidekick.

Wasn’t she the Dalek?
The character was cool though....and she has some great curves.
Not that you couldn't see it coming in advance if you were paying attention.
Yes. She crashed landed on the asylum planet, the daleks “fully converted” her but she retained enough of her humanity to fight back,
Since she didn’t interact with any of the main cast, they could have put anyone in there at the last minute without anyone knowing.
“The old team: The Doctor, played by Matt Smith, with his former assistant Karen Gillan, played by Amy Pond”
Caption fail, Dailymail!
The part she played was integral to the episode. That is hardly a ‘pop in’ appearance.
The part she played will most like be integral to her becoming the new companion. Doctor Who did seem to have a moment of sadness when he discovered that she had actually been assimilated.
Considering the rampant and aggressive homosexuality of Russel T Davies and in the Torchwood spinoff, I’m surprised the new companion is actually a female...
Davies left as writer and producer a couple of years ago. Steve Moffat is the writer now and has been the executive producer since 2009.
her actual name on the show is Amelia Pond!
“Considering the rampant and aggressive homosexuality of Russel T Davies and in the Torchwood spinoff”
I tried to like Torchwood but couldn’t hack the “in your face” homosexuality. I turned it off years ago. The new gal is a cutie though. I caught the show entirely by accident channel surfing.
So will her regular character be the twin sister? will the first one be her future self? or will DW be rehabbing her back to human?
Not if she was his assistant before she became assimilated.
Which would explain why she was so brilliant.
I mostly liked Torchwood, but you're right on target about how the foolishly gratuitous flaunting of homosexuality and perversion at every turn was a distracting non-sequitur that damaged the series
I have only seen a couple episodes of the newer Dr. Who series - I have it available to view on demand through Amazon Prime - is it worth starting at the beginning, or is there a better place to hop onboard? I had a nagging feeling while viewing Torchwood that I was missing something by not having started by watching all of Dr. Who first.
Maybe she’ll be the companion AS a Dalek;
the Doctor going back and saving her just before
the asylum planet was blown up, and the Daleks
will still not remember him.
(But then... that just makes me think
“Danger! Will Robinson!!”.... )
Do not skip the Christmas specials.
