'Doctor Who': is Sophia Myles the new companion?

Sophia-Myles.jpg "Doctor Who" show runner Steven Moffat just tweeted something that set the Whovians all atwitter. He may have just revealed the identity of the newest companion. Fans of "Doctor Who" are still in mourning for the departure of companions Amy Pond ( Karen Gillan) and Rory ( Arthur Darvill) but a fan favorite might be joining the cast.

Now, we're not sure if this is the way to interpret the tweet from @steven_moffat, but judge for yourself.

Right EVERYBODY who follows me, go and follow @SophiaMyles - spin that fireplace. NOW. I'll explain later. Or not.

Sophia Myles tweeted back: "Watch this (fire)place," and "The plot thickens..."

If you recall, Myles played Mme. Pompadour in "The Girl in the Fireplace," which is widely touted as one of the show's best episodes. (We'd also add "The Doctor's Wife" in there.) While we'd love to see her back, we're not sure the famous character would be a full companion. We'd love to hear your thoughts. Give us a shout and tell us what you think.
