Jenna Coleman and Matt Smith in The Day of the Doctor

Coleman Promises “A Different Show Next Year”

With the timelines converging on the planet Trenzalore, peoples of the Whoniverse have begun to look ahead to the Doctor’s regeneration into newcomer Peter Capaldi.

Jenna Coleman, who plays the Doctor’s companion Clara, believes the Twelfth Doctor will take the show in a brand new direction.

“He’s going to be so different to Matt… It will be a different show next year. We have a bit of a gap before we start filming the new series, so I have time to get my head around it all. Me and Peter will get together before Christmas to start rehearsing and the scripts will start coming in.”

Coleman also revealed she was somewhat surprised that Peter Capaldi’s name hadn’t been touted sooner, adding:

“It’s funny as I don’t think he was one of the names that was originally being speculated about. It wasn’t until the week before [the announcement] that his name came up.”

Soon, Peter Capaldi will have one of the most recognised faces on British television! See his official debut as the Twelfth Doctor on BBC 1, 7.30pm Christmas Day.
