New Doctor Who Companion

So Karen Gillan is going to be the new Companion.

And she's awfully young. Please, please, please tell me she won't be in love with the Doctor!

Other than that, I haven't a strong opinion either way: The actress was fine in The Fires of Pompeii, but she won't be the same character (Could be kind of fun if she were...), so there's not much to go on there.

Edit1: *Sigh. I misread the quote I thought I liked. Too fast, and too excited. Never mind :(

Edit2: I do like this snarky bit, courtesy of Topless Robot:
"The new Who's new Companion has been cast, and it's the very young, mostly unknown and rather pale Karen Gillan, seen above. The BBC hopes this will draw attention away from the fact that Matt Smith is incredibly young, generally unknown, and crazy pale."
