Behold the New Doctor Who Companion Is…
I still haven’t gotten over the fact that Karen Gillian is leaving the wildly popular Doctor Who. It may or may not be because I have a pretty big crush on her. Well here we are and it seems that it is actually happening as the good folks at Doctor Who have just announced who the new companion.

Here are some snippets from the BBC Article that announced it:
Coleman, who will make her first appearance in the Christmas special, added that she is a “huge fan” of the show.
“It always seems impossible when you start casting these parts, but when we saw Matt and Jenna together, we knew we had our girl. She’s funny and clever and exactly mad enough to step on board the Tardis,” Moffat said.
“It’s not often the Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it’s about to happen. Jenna is going to lead him his merriest dance yet. And that’s all you’re getting for now.
“Who she’s playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by the Doctor’s standards, this isn’t your usual boy meets girl.”
The BBC said the Doctor will meet Coleman’s character in a “dramatic turn of events as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year”.
Filming for the seventh series of the sci-fi drama started last month in Wales.
Yeah..I am in.
