Doctor Who star Matt Smith has praised his new co-star Jenna-Louise Coleman.

The actor told SFX that Coleman’s new companion character – widely believed to be named Clara – will be “very different” to her predecessor Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

“I think Steven’s writing her in a very interesting way – in a different way to Amy Pond,” he said. “I can’t really tell you too much about her and her story because it’s all top-secret as always… but we’re very excited and we’re planning to make the show with her bigger and better than ever and just keep moving forward. Jenna’s doing a wonderful job, she’s a wonderful actress and very dedicated.”
