The Series 5 TARDIS is about to get the sex~o~meter kicked up a notch with the addition of another bright young thing.

The News Of The World is reporting that Hannah Murray will be the companion in Series 5 of Doctor Who.

Murray is best known for her role as the OCD~suffering Cassie Ainsworth in the E4 show Skins and has seemingly impressed those in charge enough to accompany Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor in the TARDIS. An unnamed BBC insider said: “Hannah did some challenging stuff in Skins and they see her as an up-and-comer."

The nineteen~year old actress, who starred in Skins for two seasons, has already appeared alongside Smith in the play That Face which also starred Lindsay Duncan - the one off companion for this year's Christmas Special.
