Jenna-Louise Coleman (pictured below) has been announced as the actress who will play the new companion in Doctor Who Series 7. The actress is known for her roles in Emmerdale, Waterloo Road and will be seen in upcoming series, Titanic. Her first episode will be the 2012 Christmas special.



At a press conference today Jenna said, "I want to get started already. I'm a huge fan of the show. Matt Smith did my audition with me. It was fun and I felt like we were in it together." Current showrunner Steven Moffat added, "We saw a lot of brilliant actresses. But Jenna was the only person going faster than Matt - he had to keep up!"

Jenna says: "I'm beyond excited, I can't wait to get cracking; working alongside Matt I know is going to be enormous fun and a huge adventure."

The Doctor will meet his new friend in a dramatic turn of events as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year - full of thrills, adventures and big surprises. Series seven is currently filming and comprises 14 big, blockbuster-movie episodes - each a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you've never seen them before.


Lead writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, says: "It always seems impossible when you start casting these parts, but when we saw Matt and Jenna together, we knew we had our girl. She's funny and clever and exactly mad enough to step on board the TARDIS.

"It's not often the Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it's about to happen. Jenna is going to lead him his merriest dance yet. And that's all you're getting for now. Who she's playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by the Doctor's standards, this isn't your usual boy meets girl."

Lydia Wilson would make an awesome companion, too. She belongs on Doctor Who, after her performance as the robot girl in the S1 Ep2 of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency a couple of weeks ago. She's been in a lot of weird roles, both TV and theatre. In the Dirk Gently episode, she was as quirky as Zooey Deschanel, but without that odd forced feel (or deer-in-headlights feel) that you get from Zooey.

Ah well, we can only hope it happens later down the road.

Amy was getting to be a bit much anyway. You can only take so much of a tough girl before you want to push her out of the picture. Rory was starting to be the better companion.

I actually liked Martha with #10. (She's awesome in her role in Law & Order UK.)

I was kind of hoping for Sally Sparrow from the first Weeping Angels episode with the 10th doctor.
