Oh, that Moffat.
Leave it to him to wrong-foot fans and professional observers alike by casting British actress Jenna-Louise Coleman as Matt Smith’s new TARDIS flatmate and not the much gossiped-about Sophia Myles.
She’s familiar to fans of British soap “Emmerdale”, had a brief gig on “Boston Legal” and showed up again on UK school drama “Waterloo Road”. She’ll be seen next in the Julian Fellowes-penned “Titanic” TV drama which begins to air in the UK this weekend.
You can see an interview with her at YouTube here and expect to see her first time running down corridors in the company of a lanky gent this Christmas in the annual “Who” special.
