Jenna Speaks!

While we still don’t know the name of her character, future Doctor Who companion Jenna-Louise Coleman has revealed that she is “beyond excited”.

You may know her from Emmerdale (Jasmine Thomas) and Waterloo Road (Lindsay James), and she can currently be seen in ITV1′s Titanic, but when Jenna replaces Karen Gillan she will be the most famous face on TV.

“I’m beyond excited, I can’t wait to get cracking; working alongside Matt I know is going to be enormous fun and a huge adventure.”

She should be excited too: this is the second biggest job in television, one that will see her gain an income for life and have her face appear everywhere, from lunchboxes to Internet forums.

It seems that casting was simple for Steven Moffat and his team.

“It always seems impossible when you start casting these parts, but when we saw Matt and Jenna together, we knew we had our girl. She’s funny and clever and exactly mad enough to step on board the TARDIS.

“It’s not often the Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it’s about to happen. Jenna is going to lead him his merriest dance yet. And that’s all you’re getting for now. Who she’s playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by the Doctor’s standards, this isn’t your usual boy meets girl.”

We’ve got a while to go before we see Jenna in action. In the meantime, check her showreel and gallery!
