From the set of Doctor Who, currently shooting in Wales, we’ve got not only the first set pics of Jenna Louise Coleman in character, but that character has a name. Once the Ponds leave, the Doctor’s new companion’s name will be Clara.
The Doctor Who episode being filmed right now is NOT the Christmas special—which is the episode that’ll introduce us to Clara as the brand-new Who companion—but it’s believed to be episode 11 in the series.
Keen-eyed viewers will also notice that Matt Smith is sporting a brand-new jacket with a waistcoat in the pics. Is it a Victorian-ish disguise, or is this the Doctor’s new costume? We think it looks rather dapper on him.
On the impact the arrival of the new Doctor Who companion will have on the beloved sci-fi show, Steven Moffat said:
“It’s just very exciting. When a new companion comes in it sort of reboots the show a little bit, it makes you look at the Doctor differently, it makes the show feel different, that’s already happening. It’s literally a new beginning, you’re back to chapter one, in a way it’s always a story of someone getting to know the Doctor, and now it’s Jenna’s character. There’s a lot of ways (her character) will be different, but I’m not telling you what they are! Jenna is just wonderful and spiky and salty and clever: again — just as Doctor Who always does — it becomes a different show, and I’m thrilled with her, everyone’s going to be.”
