A New Companion and Martha's Fate Decided

We were promised news on Martha's fate today and the BBC did not lie. Today we found out that Martha Jones will be retuning to the Tardis mid way through series 4 of Doctor Who. She is also set to appear in 3 episodes of the Doctor Who Spin-off Torchwood which should be interesting. Below is some information from the Official Doctor Who site.
While the final episode of Series Three, screened last Saturday , saw The Doctor's companion Martha leave to care for her devastated family, and to break the cycle of unrequited love she feels for The Doctor, the production team has now confirmed that the character is set to make a triumphant return in the fourth series.Freema Agyeman is also set to join the cast of Torchwood, where she will continue to play the character in three new episodes before returning to Doctor Who in the middle of the fourth series.As Doctor Who's Executive Producer and head writer, Russell T Davies notes: "Series three has gained outstanding reviews and Freema has been a huge part of that success, gaining rave notices for her portrayal of Martha. Now we are taking the character of Martha into brand new territory with a starring role in Torchwood"."I can't wait to start filming on Torchwood and the new series of Doctor Who," said Freema. "It's a huge new challenge for me and I'm delighted Russell has decided to expand the character of Martha Jones.'"The new announcement leaves a vacant space in the TARDIS. A new companion for The Doctor, who will join the new series for the entire 13 week run, will be announced shortly.
Whilst watching the morning TV show GMTV i came across in there TV Pick Of The Day i noticed there report on this exciting news and also they suggested that Tom Milligan (Tom Ellis) will become the Doctors new companion. Whether this news is correct or not is yet to be seen.
