And The New Companion Is – Jenna-Louise Coleman

And The New Companion Is – Jenna-Louise Coleman

Jenna-Louise Coleman has been officially confirmed as the new companion to take over from Karen Gillan when she leaves the show sometime during series Seven.

From The BBC…

Her first episode will be the Xmas special.

There will be 6 episodes this year, including the Xmas Special. Then 8 next year. Jenna’s character will first be seen at Xmas.

Steven Moffat “Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in ep 5. Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time

The Daleks will be returning in the autumn series (Doctor Who Magazine)

Jenna-Louise was born in Blackpool and played Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale. She has been nominated for numerous awards in recent years including “Best Newcomer” “Best Actress” “Sexiest Female” and “Best Dramatic Performance”.

Her most recent appearance will be as Annie Desmond in Julian Fellowes four part mini-series Titanic.

    Of course the Doctor married River. He had parental consent from Amy and Rory, but it is not legally documented. The Doctor will not “manifest” into the Valeyard. The Valeyard is a part of the Doctor that manifests itself into a separate form. It is unknown if/when the Valeyard will make an appearance. The Daleks are in the space/time continuum – although an exact trace cannot be matched. They will return in Series 7 (my money’s on Episode 4). We do not know what was in the Doctor’s room – nobody does apart from Toby Whithouse and Steven Moffat, given they have spoken of it.

    Jenny was kept alive at the personal request of Moffat as a back up plan in csae whoever would be eventually cast as Amy Pond left after one series and he needed another explanation for who River Song was.

    I will miss amy and rory i dont really agree with killing them off but i think it shows viewers that being friends with the doctor isn’t just fun and games also a lot of running because sooner or later there going to catch up with u esspecially if angels are involved!:)

    I think Amy and Rory are great companions but to be honest I am genuinely prepared to see them die! I never really thought I’d say that!!
    We’ll have to see what tricks Mr Moffat has up his sleeve this time. 🙂

    It’s an alright idea, but surely if the doctor where to take take Amy back in time to be with Rory then wouldnt he not just take them both back to the present day ?

    And the Moffat has said there will definetly be a death.

    Bit extreme. Karens been ok but wouldnt say shes been any better than Catherine Tate or Freema. Shes left me cold and come across in several episodes as downright annoying. The new girl will be fine, really loooking forward to the change.

    She could be Jenny, the doctors daughter as at the end she said something about it isn’t the last time he meets her and he will have to meet her again soon or she will have been forgotten about

    Who agrees?

    Forgot to mention that they could be sent to where melody pond is in America as then they can bring her up themselves as I think is isnt very good that Amy and Rory have a child and lose them, especially on a family show

    The “Marmite” series – series 6 will split fans down the middle for decades. Personally, I thought it was one of the most imaginative series in DW history and not just drew on the wealth of DW mythology but actually added to it in a signficant way. I loved the dark elements and the more mature story lines. It did hurt my brain a little though so I am more than happy for series 7 to be 14 seperate adventures without a major arc….but Series 6 was, for me, a rollacoster ride – loved it!

    As far as I’m concerned the angel 2-parter in series 5 was amazing. In reality the angels have only appeared in Blink, a two-parter and in a tiny cameo in The God Complex. If you think how many times true greats like the cybermen and daleks have appeared, this is a tiny amount indeed next to them! They’re great monsters and i hope they keep coming back…

    It sad that Rory & Amy are leaving. Does not have to be more 1 companion for Doctor have his time travel. But I should say the new companion is goddess & Beautiful. I might like her.
