The Tabloids Have Named Doctor Who's New Companion... CONFIRMED

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.
