The 27-year-old star will of course miss Matt Smith when he leaves the show at the end of this year, but is also looking forward to the next Time Lord

“I am excited for the new Doctor, but it’s so far off in the distance,” she told Mandrake at the Glamour Women of the Year awards “We have so much still to get through including the goodbye.”

And when asked if she would have a preference to the next Doctor Who being male or female, Coleman replied: “I’m sure whoever they pick will be amazing.”

Smith will be leaving the hit BBC show at Christmas, as he focuses on his Hollywood career.
