Actually, it is slightly surprisingly because when I heard that Freema Agyeman was leaving the show and the new companion was going to be Catherine Tate I was more than slightly worried. Having seen Tate in the 'Runaway Bride' Christmas Episode episode I was very worried what she'd bring to Season 4.
Well, now that I've seen more footage of Season 4 and Tate's character I have reversed my opinion and am actually looking forward to the new adventures. Plus it's not like we've seen the last of Freema's "Martha" character in various Who programmes.
The trailers and teasers I've seen for Season 4 look great and I've not looked forward to an appointment with a Doctor this much in ages :p
Roll on Saturday...
