Since the show's reboot in 2005, the Doctor has had three other permanent companions, played by Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman and Catherine Tate. She was to be the feisty new assistant with all the attendant drooling over her model's looks.
They both chew gum as they pore over piles of discs, Arthur next picking out a Richard Hawley single. They burst into our photographer's studio half-an-hour late, emitting a first-coffee-of-the-morning buzz.
