A year ago, when it became clear that this would be David Tennant's last stint as the Tenth Doctor, there were some rumours regarding the new companion (for Matt Smith), and one of the names that came up, and made me very happy, was Hannah Murray's (Cassie from "Skins").

The fourth season and therefore the second generation of "Skins" will be over tomorrow. This makes me sad, but at least I'll be able to focus on other things then.
