Jenna-Louise Coleman has begun her adventure with the Doctor this week as filming commenced on her first scenes as the new companion, reports Doctor Who News.
Jenna was captured leaving the Welsh manor Plas Llanmihangel House yesterday by fan Garth Bundy, who rather than revealing any Moffat-baiting spoilers caught the actress in her civvies, and not her official costume.
The eccentrically structured sixteenth century manor boasts amongst its finery; a thirteenth century Church and graveyard which perhaps confirms that this year’s Christmas special will be not only be a ghost story but a period tale – maybe, for the first time since Doctor Who returned, we’ll be getting a non-contemporaneous companion (well, not contemporary to us.)
Jenna’s first read-through for Doctor Who has already been recorded for posterity with the BBC’s official Doctor Who Twitter feed proclaiming:
History has been made! A new era begins! Jenna-Louise Coleman has just completed her first #DoctorWho read-through. One word. Brilliant!
