Interview extracts contain mild spoilers

In This weeks radio Times – Doctor Who – Jenna-Louise Coleman…

On being in the public spotlight:

“Matt warned me that there’s nothing that can prepare you for it. All I can do is enjoy it. I’ve noticed some changes – nothing huge. I have a really cool job and get to do these crazy things and you do have so many ‘pinch me’ moments. I’ve just been sent emails with pics of the Clara doll, which is kind of…”


She hints at the finale of the mystery of the Impossible Girl :

“In the beginning we see a Clara in the 60s, 70s and the 80s so there are a lot of costume changes, which I love. Always one for a bit of dressing up, me. Love a red carpet. Richard E Grant is back with his evil Great Intelligence, the Doctor’s greatest secret is revealed, all of his friends rally round to protect him and we finally understand why the Doctor has met Clara so many different times.”

On working with Matt Smith:

“His first advice was never Google yourself and, now that I’ve got a three-month break, he said take your time and choose your next role carefully. I’ve read loads of scripts but nothing I’m really in love with.”

    Why can’t we just say that all of the front covers on ‘Radio Times’ can be used as posters inside of the issue? Cos’ this is an awesome cover. With the Doctor looking cool and all, but for once. It’s Clara at the front and the Doctor behind. Usually, this is what makes me depressed, the Doctor’s always at the front.

      In fairness to having Jenna posted in the front of the cover instead of Matt, I think it’s only right that Jenna as Clara should take the centre of this new Radio Times cover rather then the Doctor, cos back in the old days for example, the Doctor was always like the centre of the series where as the companion’s where largely not, now days that’s all changed where the companion’s tend to take centre stage rather then Doctor all the time, making the Doctor and his companions as equal as possible rather then 1 main character made more important then the others, in other words, in the classic series, the Doctor was all important one while the companion[s] just tagged along, where as now, it’s the Doctor and the companion[s] equally helping each other rather then a companion being reduced to the level of an assistant, plus the stories sometimes focus more on the companion in the new series rather then on the Doctor.
