Last night’s episode was really, really sad. But at least, we got a little teaser of the Christmas Special at the end! I’m gonna miss the Ponds, but I can’t also wait to see Jenna as the new companion!

Doctor Who writer Tom MacRae has praised “fantastic” new companion actress Jenna-Louise Coleman.

MacRae told Digital Spy that he had been impressed by the 26-year-old star’s original audition tapes.

“She just had this amazing energy,” he explained. “She’s actually a couple of years older than Karen [Gillan] but she seems younger – she seems more of a teenager and bouncy. She’s fantastic. It’s really hard to take over from any companion that’s loved like Amy and Rory are, and she’s just going to be so different whilst still being a Doctor Who companion. It’s a very good choice from the producers.”

MacRae also confessed that he had been aware of Coleman’s surprise guest appearance in Who’s series seven premiere ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ prior to transmission.

“I was amazed that it stayed secret, but thrilled that it did,” he revealed. “It was a very clever decision of Steven [Moffat]’s to tease in that way, because he’s given away absolutely nothing but created a lot of interest.”

Jenna-Louise Coleman broke the TARDIS on her first day filming with it.

The 26-year-old actress admits her early ‘Doctor Who’ filming as the Time Lord’s companion Oswin Oswald didn’t go too well as she had an ”argument” with the time-travelling spacecraft.

She said: ”I had my first scenes with the TARDIS the other day.

”In fact, I had an argument with the TARDIS. I fell through it. I had to bang on the doors, and the doors weren’t shut properly, so in front of all the crew I went flying through it. It’s on camera.

”I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, I’ve broken the Tardis, everyone’s going to hate me.’ ”

However, show bosses assured Jenna-Louise that mishaps were common – and that co-star Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, is the most accident prone of all.

She added to Doctor Who magazine: ”He didn’t tell me that.”

Former ‘Emmerdale’ actress Jenna-Louise made her debut appearance in the show’s opening episode and will return at Christmas.
