Jenna-Louise Coleman – shot by the BBC.


Via the BBC America Tumblr (that’s still a thing, right?).

In the proud tradition of internet nerds ceaselessly over-observing promotional pictures for advanced clues about their favourite IP’s latest iterations, I think that I’ve managed to pick up a few, very distinct clues about Jenna-Louise Coleman’s character in the next series of “Who”.

1) She’s an emissary from a mysterious alien race of super-powerful beings who convey their thoughts and feelings via the medium of fine knitwear.

2) I’m out.

I still like the idea that Moffat intends to pull a bait-and-switch on us and we might end up with the perky Coleman playing an alien and being buried under layers of prosthetics – part of me finds this notion glorious and the rest of me has figured out that there’s no way in Hades that the BBC would allow this to happen.

Jenna-Louise Coleman gets key to the TARDIS


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.
