We’ve seen them filming together, and it’s rumored her name is Clara, but this here is our first official look at the Doctor and his new companion. Released on BBC’s Doctor Who blog this is the first of three, exclusive, official photos. We can expect the other two next week. Soooo, what d’ya think?
I’m starting to wonder if this isn’t just a period appropriate outfit Matt Smith is wearing, but rather a whole new costume for the Doctor?!? He’s still rockin’ the bow tie, y’know, ’cause they’re cool, but he’s added a vest and the colors of his suit are far more muted. Plus, it’s not unheard of for a Doctor to change outfits, particularly when changing companions. What do you say, one episode wardrobe change or entirely new costume?
Now, that companion, I still don’t know what to think. She sure looks like an average, run of the mill, human girl but they keep stressing how different she is. Oh, how I wish she ends up being an alien or robot, or just something! Here’s a snippet of a quote from Smith about his new companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman,
It [filming on the new series] is going well. Jenna brings a really different energy to the show – one which I think is very interesting.
Coleman will first appear in the Christmas episode but the bulk of her episodes won’t air until 2013. That leaves the rest of 2012 to be spent preparing to say goodbye to the Ponds! Sniff!
