Karen is part of the youngest pairing of the Doctor and companion on Doctor Who (2005). In 2009, the new Doctor, Matt Smith, is 26, and she is just 21. Their combined age will be younger than that of Jon Pertwee, when he was playing the Time Lord in the 1970s.

The Daleks on the series had to be redesigned to match her height, as she's half a foot taller than Billie Piper, who was the first companion on the revival.
