Quote by Dr. Who is new girl

Actors Nicola Bryant, above, is going places fast-- with Dr. Who in the Tardis time machine.

She was named yesterday and the doctor's new assistant in the BBC-TV space serial that thrills nearly 100 million viewers worldwide.

Nicola, 21, will be his 25th assistant since the series started nearly 20 years ago. It is her first professional job since leaving drama school four months ago.

She said: "I'm amazed. It's unbelievable. I was crawling around in my nappies when the series started and I was really scared of it. The Daleks petrified me."

Surrey-born Nicola, the daughter of the heating firm boss, will play an American student named Perpugilliam Brown-- 'Perry' for short-- who meets Dr Who (actor Peter Davison) on a Mediterranean holiday.

She replaces the character Tegan, played by Janet Fielding, who is leaving the programme. Her first appearance will be early in the new year.
