First Official Photo of New Doctor Who Companion Jenna-Louise Coleman

JENNA-LOUISE COLEMAN - Doctor Who - TARDIS

It was only a few days ago that Jenna-Louise Coleman was announced as the new companion on the long-running BBC series, Doctor Who. Now thanks to the official tumblr for BBC America, we have our first look at the as yet unnamed character in front of the TARDIS in a groovy jumper.

We already knew that Series 7 of the show would be a set of 14 blockbuster-style episodes, and that Coleman will make her debut in the 2012 Christmas Special. However, the piece adds that current companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) “will leave in episode 5 of the upcoming Series (7)”. This is all in the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of the series.

The BBC seems to have made the transition easier by seemingly styling her to look like Amy Pond.

    She reminds me a bit of the Seventh Doctor’s companion Ace.
