      What? Sorry, but the amount of people judging her when they haven’t even seen her on screen is terrible. I understand if Amy is your favourite companion and, yes, she’s brilliant, but I’m willing to give Jenna a chance because I think she’ll be just as good as Amy. Maybe even better.

      Part of the course, happens all the time but its beyond me why

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      I just find it wrong how people are judging her 8 months before they’re even gonna see her on screen.

      It’s surprising how some people act about this kind of thing when they know Doctor Who is a programme which will always change.

    such a good charecter on Waterloo Road and Emmerdale her acting skills are much better than Karen Gillan’s

    she will be great if her acting skills are as good as they were in Emmerdale and Waterloo Road move along Karen Gillan cos doctor who just got better

  • OMG

    March 27th, 2012 - 6:34pm

    i remember her in Emmerdale she killed the police man and Debbie helped her dump the body Debbie got let of and Jasmine got sent doen and in Waterloo Road she played Lindsey who killed her dad her acting in the court scene was amazing and her acting when she told Rachel what had happened was fantastic i wanted her to return to Waterloo Road but she left she will be fanatsic in Doctor Who aswell she is good actress but should go back to Emmerdale just for drama with Debbie .

      She kills a lot of people as an actor. Hope she doesn’t join Kovarian’s side and kill the Doctor! 😉

    i would prefer her to come in after the 50th anniversary as karen and arthur have played the companions longer, but oh well 🙄

    im going to watch titanic tonight so then i will be able to see if she is good actress

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      March 25th, 2012 - 8:30pm

      Same! Toby Jones (Dream Lord) and Ruth Bradley (Emily in Primeval) are also in it so it’s certainly going to be good! I can’t wait to see what Jenna-Louise will be like though. 😀

    it feels weird that there is a new companion but then again it felt weird when Amy and Rory joined the TARDIS and i love them now so maybe we will all love jenna. its easy to judge at first but its not fair to say she wont be better than amy and rory because we havent seen her yet. i thought matt smith would never be as good as tennant but now i think matt is the best doctor ever


    March 24th, 2012 - 3:11pm

    I don’t like the look of her!

    • Fox Muldor

      March 24th, 2012 - 11:14pm

      She will be better looking on the show.

    p.s her new catchfrase could be jumpers are cool

    she looks really nice in that photo

    Nice photo of her & she wearing a nice top too. 😉

    She looks to me like a grown up Maria Jackson from the Sarah Jane Adventures . . . . ah, now theres a thought . . . . could she be playing Maria herself, but from a few years time in her early 20’s ? . . . . time will tell, always does 🙂

    • TARDIS

      March 24th, 2012 - 8:50am

      I don’t think so the skin texture is different.

    • gary

      March 24th, 2012 - 9:45am

      And it’s a bit of a silly idea too!

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      March 24th, 2012 - 3:30pm

      Gary – why should it be a silly idea ?, we’ve seen a young boy play a young child version of the Master, and a little boy and girl play Mickey and Rose in series 1’s ” Fathers Day “, so clearly it’s not a silly idea to have someone play an older version of Maria Jackson, not that it is Maria she’s playing offcourse.

    I think shes gona be great, and anyone can wear jumpers mate haha, she looks great.

    I’m finding it a little bit hard to picture her and Matt together. Hopefully once the filming pictures start rolling in I’ll be able to imagine a clearer picture.
    Shame Confidential won’t be around to cover their relationship behind the scenes which many people (including me) loved seeing with Matt, Karen and Arthur. 🙁


      March 24th, 2012 - 2:07pm

      I can’t picture them together either!

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 24th, 2012 - 2:57pm

      I’m sure they will be great together though. Matt Smith has had good chemistry with a lot of characters in his era so far! Even himself! 🙂

    Only Hipsters, eg. Karen And The Babes, can wear sweaters and get away with it!

    nice to see a full size image. I can easily imagine her with matt smith!
