Doctor Who's latest companion is unveiled
BBC News ^ | 21st March 2012 | BBC News

Posted on 03/21/2012 10:19:13 AM PDT by the scotsman

'Former Emmerdale actress Jenna-Louise Coleman has landed the role of the Time Lord's new companion in Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.

Producer Steven Moffat announced the actress will replace Karen Gillan's character Amy Pond when she leaves the show in the next series.

Coleman, 25, has also appeared in Waterloo Road and Julian Fellowes' four part mini-series Titanic.

The star said: "I am beyond excited. I can't wait to get cracking."

Coleman, who will make her first appearance in the Christmas special, added that she is a "huge fan" of the show.

The actress, who is from Blackpool, revealed she auditioned alongside Matt Smith, who plays the 11th Doctor.

Filming for the new series of Doctor Who began in Wales last month "It was fun and I felt like we were in it together."

Smith is set to return as the Time Lord in the new series of Doctor Who, which starts later this year.'

It is my opinion that, if we are going to dedicate a thread, on a political activist website, to a vapid celebrity of no real consequence to the world, then it is imperative that we have pictures!

Our whole family loves Dr. Who, It will be good to see that story line of the last two years with the other girl and her boyfriend come to an end, that was really chaning the historical approach to Dr. Who.

I don’t think this new girl is so hot, she’s just not that pretty in my book, but I don’t care, I love the Dr. Who show ....

I didn’t watch DW when Sarah Jane was the companion.

I did like her Sarah Jane Adventures, even though they were primarily kids programs.

She is missed.

Supposedly it will be a “heartbreaking” ending.

According to the article, this chick will be “fast-talking”. Doesn’t appeal to me. I hate the “smarty” types.

I am very weary of all the hearbreaking departures.

it would have been nice to have a positive ending without all the tradgedy tossed in for so called drama.

Same here. I’ve been a fan since the mid-60s when it first aired. Storylines are much better now than it was back then.

Not just worked with (starting in season 17), but was intimate with and married to.

Now she’s married to Richard Dawkins.

Yup! In a way I miss some of the really cheesy storylines and effects but the new episodes are so much better!

One problem I’ve had is trying to explain to new, young viewers what a call box is. Most have never seen a phone booth.

The character or the actress? The character stayed behind on Gallifrey, presumably to marry one of the citadel guards.

Sadly, that is the problem with a lot of shows. Have to look past that, and can most of the time. Unfortunately, some leftist writers go way overboard - that's why I can't stomach Torchwood, the gay stuff is sick.
