So: Who Is Jenna?
You’ve got to hand it to IMDb. The way it makes it so easy for people like you and me to update it regularly makes it less reliable than Wikipedia, especially when it comes to shows that have a big fan base.
Which is why an entry for Jenna-Louise Coleman is causing such a stir among Doctor Who fans on Tumblr.
It would be easy to dismiss this as nonsense – after all, Red Dwarf‘s Norman Lovett was supposedly cast as Davros in The Parting of the Ways back in 2005 – but we won’t be drawn into any unnecessary spoiler-breaking about the nature of the Doctor’s new companion, regardless of how fan-baiting it is.
In fact, rewind. This isn’t fan-baiting. It is positively explosive!
The theory, of course, is that young Susan is the daughter of the alt-Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler, and either named after you-know-who or perhaps an earlier incarnation of An Unearthly Child.
What do you think? A load of old space junk or a glimpse into the vortex? Let us know!
If you chose to avoid the spoiler, you’re best off avoiding the comments below, too…
