New Doctor Who companion Jenna-Louise Coleman

A Short-Term Future for Clara?

Now, this is interesting…

A newsletter from Popbitch recently mentioned a couple of celebrity names that are said to be on a “wishlist” to appear in the next series of Strictly Come Dancing; one of the names that is said to be close to confirming is Jenna Louise-Coleman. Now what on earth could she be doing on a show like that?

Because if Coleman is to appear on Strictly towards the end of the year, it may mean that she’s too busy to film the next series of Doctor Who – or that she might not even be in it.

At this point, there are many variables. The Doctor Who production team could be moving the filming dates to early 2014 for a later start for production of Doctor Who Series 8. They could have given Coleman the time off so that she could take part in Strictly Come Dancing and Doctor Who. It could well be that Coleman might not even be appearing in Strictly Come Dancing at all, and this is just a wild rumour. But then again, Popbitch does have some pretty good sources…

Now before you all dismiss this article as tripe or rhubarb or balderdash or poppycock, bear in mind that we’ve heard that Clara Oswald won’t be making an appearance in the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip due to “her story”. Quite what that means, is anyone’s guess but maybe Mr Moffat has decided that companions are only for Christmas and not just for life…


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
