First Look at the New Team!

The BBC’s Official Doctor Who website informed fans earlier this week that we would be seeing a few snaps of the Eleventh Doctor and his as-yet-unnamed new best friend…

Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman in Doctor Who

…and here it is!

Matt Smith has revealed that shooting is going well at the new Roath Lock Studios.

‘Jenna brings a really different energy to the show – one which I think is very interesting.’

More photos are promised next week

They look good together, don’t they? The Doctor’s new outfit looks particularly dashing too – let’s hope we see a lot more of it (although I daresay the Harris Tweed industry isn’t too happy…)!

    It’s a cute photo and I agree about the Doctor’s outfit. A very stylish darker look for him. I like it a lot.

    New costume or temporary change? I believe that this is a story with a Victorian setting. Other sites are stating that the companion is called Clara. Seems they don’t always check their info correctly. Time will tell.

    • We’re not stating it either way until we know for certain :)

        And I note that the BBC site is silent on the matter

    OoOoOoh! I’m love, love, LOVING Matt’s new suit!

    *Very* nice new outfit. I think it’s the look for at least the second half of the season. He usually wears the same outfit no matter where he goes. He added the coat last year, had the tux on for a scene but I like that look. Matt’s probably feeling a little adrift without Karen and Arthur there but he’s a pro and I’ll bet he takes what he’s feeling and makes it work. He’s a truly talented young man.

    Jenna seems to be almost copying a rather famous pose by one Susan Foreman. Coincidence, i’m sure!

    Great pic, love the waistcoat.

    @matt: Actually, the pose is the same spot as the original photo.
