Users of The Twitter beware – several scammers have gone on Twitter and are posting links to what they claim is a sex tape of Jenna-Louise Coleman, the recently announced new companion to Matt Smith’s Doctor.
The first problem with this, which you’ve probably already deduced as I’m calling them scammers, is that there is no sex tape. Clicking on the links will take you through to (according to the Telegraph) a hardcore Asian porn website. Clicking on the video thumbnails will lead you to unwittingly follow a Twitter account. Personally, I think this is a bit of brilliance on behalf of the scammers. They took the news that Jenna-Louise Coleman was to be the new companion and merged it with the recent leak of the rubbish and all too real Tulisa sex tape to create what some people might see as plausible (and therefore less likely to be a scam).
The second problem is this: say there was a sex tape. If you are of an age to be clicking such things, chances are you range between the ages of 18-40. If you watch Doctor Who with somebody else, you have the eternal image in your head of the Doctor’s companion naked while the others watching with you don’t have their minds untainted by such unwholesome things. And that’s something no man should have on his mind or his conscience when he’s watching a family show.
I guess a few things we’ve learned from this brief blip of a story on the Doctor Who radar are: it’s probably for the best that Coleman has been advised to commit to a Google ban, be careful what you click on, and don’t bother with the Tulisa sex tape.
