New Doctor Who companion Jenna-Louise Coleman

Regular Doctor Who Personnel Changes “Brutal” Says Jenna

Jenna Coleman appeared on ITV’s Daybreak show earlier today, in which she revealed a few feelings about recording Matt Smith’s final Doctor Who moments.

Most interesting was her description of the show’s cast turnaround being “so brutal” – something that we wonder might be a sign that the actress herself is perhaps considering moving on soon.

On the matter of the forthcoming regeneration – in which the Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor will be replaced by Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth:

I knew it was going to be sad, but it was really traumatic. It was very emotional and overwhelming.

It’s a strange thing [but] it’s the nature of the show. Matt leaves, Peter arrives in his costume and the scene carries on. You just keep going – that’s the show.

Peter Capaldi’s casting has proved that Doctor Who is still considered a great lead role, even for older actors (even if they did grow up as fans) and his appearance should be enough to whet appetites for the next full series.

Still, let’s get The Day of the Doctor out of the way first…
