Jenna’s 50th Anniversary Excitement

Jenna-Louise Coleman has spoken to The Sun’s TV Magazine recently, and expressed enthusiasm for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, celebrations for which will culminate in a special episode in November.

Doctor Who chief Steven Moffat with new companion Jenna Coleman

The actress – who was first seen as the Doctor’s mysterious companion Clara in the 2012 Christmas special The Snowmen – revealed her excitement both at the anniversary and the response of fans in the US.

…very excited. Fifty years of Doctor Who and still going strong.

It was amazing to see the response over in the US. The fans are mega-fans and its really rocketed in popularity over the past few years. I’ve been walking past the news stands in New York with Matt’s face gracing the covers of magazines.

Steven [Moffat] texted me saying this will be something we will talk about in our dotage and he is right, we will.

If she’s excited now, of course, I wonder how she’s going to feel come November? Speaking personally, I can’t wait.

    I like “Oswin” as a name better than “Clara”. We need to keep calling her Oswin. :) (Unless she turns out to be Davros in disguise).
