Jenkins’ Jitters

It seems like Welsh Soprano bombshell and acting novice Katherine Jenkins was something of a Nervous Nelly when it came to Doctor Who.

Firstly, she revealed she fretted over playing tonsil hockey with fellow A Christmas Carol co-star Danny Horn and now she has told the Daily Record that she nearly didn’t take the part of Abigail Pettigrew in this years Christmas Special.

Understandably, not being an actress, she was reluctant to accept a part in Moffat’s Christmassy episode:

“When they first called and asked me if I’d like to be in the Christmas special, my first reaction was, ‘I can’t do it, I’m not an actress’,” she said. “I’ve never trained as an actress. I don’t have any experience and that’s why I was so nervous about taking on the part.”

But, this being Doctor Who, there was method in their casting madness:

“Realising I’d be able to sing too is what swung it for me. When they told me they required singing, I thought, ‘Since there’s music with my character, I’d love to do it’.”

Jenkins also went on to praise the ‘iconic’ show and hoped that one day the Grandkids would get a chance to see her in it.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol airs Christmas Day 6pm on BBC 1 and BBC America.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
