New Doctor Who girl Jenna-Louise Coleman

New Companion Starts at Christmas!

Well, here’s an interesting new spin of Doctor Who Series 7 – the Doctor’s new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, won’t be joining the TARDIS until the Christmas special!

Warning: we’re updating this page as new information is released.

Fans had previously understood that Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill would be leaving Doctor Who in the next few weeks, leaving several episodes for Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor to travel alone without Amy and Rory. Could this mean an extended run as companion for Alex Kingston’s River Song? Or does the Sophia Myles theory still hold water?

Only Steven Moffat knows for sure, but he’s too busy – and quite right too – talking about Jenna-Louise Coleman. The following quotes are via the official Doctor Who Twitter feed.

She’s going to have to be patient, however, as it seems that the Doctor has plenty of adventuring to do just yet.
