Having confirmed just how excited she is to be taking on the mantle of a Doctor Who companion Matt Smith has take new comer Jenna Louise-Coleman under his wing and offered this sage advice reports the Press Association:
“Stay off the internet. So I’m going to follow that advice. No Googling – I’m on a Google ban.”
No, wait. Not all the internet is bad! We’re alright! We promise! That joke about how ‘exciting’ you’ll find it, we’ll edit it out. Don’t let the haters win!
Hmm…still being a companion is not all about haters hating there’s also that special time when one companion must part and in doing so offers her fresh, wide eyed replacement all the wisdom her years of adventuring have given her.
There are plans afoot this weekend for Jenna, who won’t begin shooting until May, to meet Karen Gillan:
“We haven’t met yet. I am potentially going to meet her this weekend so it’ll be great to chat.”
Speaking of things Jenna hasn’t done she hasn’t gone back and re-watched any old episodes in order not to subconsciously steal traits from her predecessors.
One person who definitely made a role in Doctor Who his own was David Tennant who had this advice, which is very similar to Matt Smith’s albeit from a different angle:
“She’s going on a very exciting journey. I hope she has some good friends to hold her hand because it can be a bit scary when you get thrust into that level of attention, speaking from personal experience.”
