    [h=1]'Doctor Who': Jenna-Louise Coleman Is The Newest Companion[/h]Doctor Who Jenna Louise Coleman
    "Doctor Who" welcomes Jenna-Louise Coleman.

    "Doctor Who" has a new companion in Jenna Louise-Coleman. BBC announced the 25-year-old actress will replace Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill on the series and appear alongside Matt Smith after Gillan and Darvill's characters make a "heartbreaking departure" later in 2012.

    "I'm beyond excited, I can't wait to get cracking; working alongside Matt I know is going to be enormous fun and a huge adventure," Coleman said in a statement.

    Coleman's other credits include "Emmerdale," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Waterloo Road," the upcoming "Titanic" miniseries (Sat., April 14 8-11 p.m. ET and Sun., April 15 9 p.m. ET on ABC) and "Dancing On The Edge."

    "It always seems impossible when you start casting these parts, but when we saw Matt and Jenna together we knew we had our girl," Steven Moffat, executive producer and lead writer of "Doctor Who," said in a statement. "She's funny and clever and exactly mad enough to step on board the TARDIS."

    Coleman joins a long line of famous faces who have traveled alongside the Doctor. Since "Doctor Who's" rebirth in 2005, Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman and Catherine Tate have all co-starred on the series as the Doctor's companion.

    "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," Moffat said. "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."

    What's to come of the Doctor's current companions, Amy and Rory? BBC America sent out this tweet.

    Steven Moffat: "Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter w/ the Weeping Angels in ep 5. Not everyone gets out alive & I mean it this time"

    it appears that she's very short

    she'll never fill Karen's shoes, but who could?

    the genius of Moffat in that scene right there -- in 30 years, no one explored whether the doctor's taste buds changed :jj:

    He had little choice--it was going to get out anyway. Hopefully it's a bit of a head fake so it doesn't turn out to be quite as clear cut as he makes it out in that twitter.

    Moffat has never gotten too much into the history and physiology of weeping angels, and it's completely his own creation, so who knows what he'll write up -- It's too much to hope that Rory will get erased from history again and Amy will continue on as a single companion :depressed:
