If you’re not afraid to find out ahead of the big reveal, or indeed the new series, here’s who the British tabloid press have named as the new Doctor Who companion.
UPDATE: The press conference is under way and Jenna-Louise Coleman has officially been named as the new companion for Doctor Who. More to follow…
Jenna Louise Coleman, former Emmerdale
Farmactress, co-star of Julian Fellowes’ upcoming Titanic miniseries and bit-part player in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The official announcement is coming at 10.30 this morning or thereabouts. We will either update this story with confirmation – most likely; or, if the tabs have gotten it wrong, we’ll tell you who has got the gig.
Incidentally, last night’s rumours of Aisling Loftus have been traced to a single message board posting on a Doctor Who fan forum. Within minutes they were being treated like fact around the Who-sphere, within minutes more, I had heard about them, and then a little later, I shared them here – maintaining scepticism all the way.
The Coleman reports seem to be much better sourced.
