Doctor Who - Jenna-Louise Coleman Is The New Girl

Well, after months of speculation, the BBC have finally announced that the new companion will be played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. The actress famous for her roles in Emmerdale and this week's ITV Titanic production will make her debut during the Christmas episode.

Steven Moffat has confirmed that six episodes will air in 2012 for the seventh series with the remaining eight to air in 2013. Amy and Rory will depart in the fifth episode of the new series, set to feature the return of the Weeping Angels.

Press Release:

Fantastic casting and welcome aboard Jenna, I'm sure you're going to be an amazing companion.

Why seven now and eight later?
What´s that trickery?
Damn, man. We wait for the doctor a whole year, please, reward us with a whole season IN a whole season, no in two parts... So annoying ¬¬
I don´t mind the new girl... She looks like she stepped out of a Disney Channel show though. Hope she lives up to the task...

It's six episodes in 2012, eight in 2013. All fourteen are being filmed this year.

However more episodes will be filmed in 2013, so we'll get some specials to lead into the 50th anniversary.

I've seen Jenna-Louise Coleman in Emmerdale, the girl can act. I can't wait to see her and Matt Smith in action.
