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.

    (since no-one is talking about the next companion, ) I think the Tetraps would make an excellent monster/character to use in the series , they could be done WAY better than Time and the Rani (“The mistress will be over…………joyed.” Don’t count on it, she’s the Rani, crazy talking animal 😆 )

    Their voices were great monster-voices, although the dialogue they got, wasn’t quite so great in that story. ❗ And they can see in all directions, what a great character to use ! 😀

    I think they will to be honest. Who else would die. In a way I want them to die so it isn’t all happy ending, and we know they are leaving anyway, however they are great actors and characters, so I don’t want them to die there. I still think people who die gives a lot more atmosphere to a show.

    I hated series 6! The storylines were way to complicated! I couldn’t get my head around them!
    And also, though you might think differently, I HATE AMY AND RORY EVEN MORE THAN THE TERRIBLE STORYLINES! I really hope these new episodes are much better than last series… I’m slowly getting pulled away from Doctor Who…

    I thought The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone was ok but the Angels lost their touch a bit (no pun intended!). Matt, Karen and Alex saved the show though.
    I’m looking forward to their appearance in Series 7! Can’t wait to see what happens!

  • the astronaut of death

    March 23rd, 2012 - 3:37pm

  • outnumberd

    March 23rd, 2012 - 11:33am

    weeping angels are being over used.

    they are great monsters but they need a break about 1 or 2 years will be good

    two: the daleks are not scary any more like the look like something on cbbc not dr who.

    i hope they go back to the gold

    I know! Do the math! 6 + 8 = 14! There is a Special in between! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, It is 15 episodes! Lol! Why didn’t I figure that out earlier! P.S. Silence will Fall. Amen.

  • Silence

    March 23rd, 2012 - 8:18am

    Me thinks some may be 2-parters! P.S. Silence will Fall. Amen.

    I enjoyed it! I loved when all us Silents killed EVERYBODY! But when everybody killed us, probably not AS good! We made an AWESOME return and it turned out we were in this sort of different dimension thingy! WHY MUST WE LOSE!

    we dont know yet


    March 23rd, 2012 - 7:26am

    Are Amy and Rory gonna get killed by the Weeping Angels?

  • matt smithy

    March 23rd, 2012 - 6:27am

    same. I think the reason people didn’t lke series 6 was because they didn’t like the scilence plot line and say the series was bad rather than that. The only episodes i didn’t like were lets kill hitler, curse of the black spot and some of the rebel flesh but hay, every series has its bad episodes. the overall series was exellent with some clever episodes such as the opening 2 parts, the doctors wife, and night terrors. blimey this is a long comment!

    I liked Amy on Serie 5, but then on Series 6 she because this grouchy person who does nothing but follow the Doctor around. Rory was awesome, and River is my favourite companion, shes just so badass. I hope she comes back.
    As for the new companion, i look forward to watching her and the Doctor interact.

  • Dalek Sec

    March 23rd, 2012 - 3:45am

    WWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Daleks. Hopefully they will acually exterminate people. They’re just not scary enough without doing so.

    I liked series 6… probably not as much (overall) as series 5, but I still liked it.

    “The Doctor’s Wife” I think now is my all-time favourite episode, and I loved “The Almost People” too. (How could you not love a Ganger Doctor?) XD

    I’m sad that Amy and Rory are gonna die. It is good to see them leave, as everyone has in the past, but them dying is gonna be sad. The Weeping Angels’ return is something I knew they were gonna do. As for the Daleks, I am praying that Moffat does something good with them. As good as Victory of the Daleks was, it could have been a lot better. All hail the new Daleks!

    Aside from the lack of villains with possible returns, aside from the Silence and Kovarian.

    Why does everyone hate series 6 for it was great

  • Matt

    March 22nd, 2012 - 10:03pm

    I’m on the hate side of the marmite line – I thought it was awful. There were onyl a couple of good episodes (IMO – Night Terrors and God Complex) and the story arc was too complicated haha! :S
