One organisation definitely off Steven Moffat’s Christmas card list is the Daily Mirror who today “revealed” the full name of the new companion played by the incoming Jenna-Louise Coleman.
Now, needless to say, this article contains a Christmas ruining spoiler but for those of you who can’t wait until the day itself may open this present early:
The Doctor’s new companion will be called…
Previously, fans attending filming in Wales claimed they had overheard Matt Smith calling Jenna-Louise Coleman’s character Clara, but her surname was not known until now.
The keener of mind amongst you will know that Clara was the middle name of former assistant and Doctor Who royalty Elisabeth Sladen, who passed away in April 2011. It’s a fitting tribute to the much missed companion.
Clara is also said to be:
“…A feisty and flirty computer expert…”
Unusual and vaguely old-fashioned name twined with a feisty, flirty personality?
Remind you of anyone?
