It’s almost here, the Doctor Who Christmas special is practically upon us and with it the introduction – or reintroduction? – of new companion, Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman). A new companion often signals a change not only of TARDIS occupants, but for The Doctor as well. Matt Smith recently talked with the Radio Times about how the Time Lord will find himself “attracted” to his new companion,
What’s interesting with a new companion is that it changes the way he is and affects his personality. I think, in one way or another, the Doctor is always attracted to his companion and he’s certainly taken by this striking young lady…
The fall of the Ponds had a grave effect on the man. I think he’s quite lonely and removed from the universe and not really as engaged as he was, at his best with Amy and Rory.
Handily, he meets a jaunty new companion, a hot chick…
Check out the massive gallery below the cut featuring The Doctor in his new duds, the “hot chick” Clara, as well as Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny (Catrin Stewart), and Strax (Dan Starkey).
The Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Snowmen” airs Christmas Day on BBC One, BBC America, and Space.
