New Companion Revealed & More Series 7 Details!

The BBC have today confirmed the new companion of the Eleventh Doctor is Jenna-Louis Coleman, read on for further details:

Jenna-Louise Coleman has beaten hundreds of hopefuls to become the new companion to Doctor Who, it was announced today by Steven Moffat.

Twenty-five year old Jenna from Blackpool will star alongside the 11th Time Lord, Matt Smith, to mark the biggest year in the show’s history. Best known for her roles in Emmerdale (Jasmine Thomas) and Waterloo Road (Lindsay James), Jenna will replace Karen Gillan when she and Arthur Darvill bow out of the show in a heartbreaking departure after one final series of rollercoaster voyages later this year on BBC One.

Jenna says: "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."

The Doctor will meet his new friend in a dramatic turn of events as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year - full of thrills, adventures and big surprises. Series seven is currently filming and comprises 14 big, blockbuster-movie episodes - each a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you've never seen them before.

Lead writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, says: "It always seems impossible when you start casting these parts, but when we saw Matt and Jenna together, we knew we had our girl. She's funny and clever and exactly mad enough to step on board the Tardis.

"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. 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."

Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One, adds "As we approach Doctor Who's 50th anniversary it's great to welcome a new companion to the Tardis. I feel confident the Doctor will look after her in his own very unique style."

Jenna-Louise was born in Blackpool and played Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale. She has been nominated for numerous awards in recent years including “Best Newcomer” “Best Actress” “Sexiest Female” and “Best Dramatic Performance”.

Her most recent appearance will be as Annie Desmond in Julian Fellowes four part mini-series Titanic. In 2011, Jenna made her big screen debut in Captain America: The First Avenger and is soon to star as Annie Desmond in ITV1’s Titanic. She has just finished filming on Stephen Poliakoff's Dancing On The Edge for BBC Two.

Also, more details have been revealed about the scheduling of the next series of Doctor Who (highlight gap to reveal spoilers): 

There will be 6 episodes this year, including the Christmas special. Then 8 next year. Coleman’s character will first be seen in the Christmas episode.

Steven Moffat “Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in episode 5. Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time

The Daleks will be returning in the Autumn part of the series.

As with Karen Gillan's character of Amy Pond, Coleman's character name is yet to be revealed. Doctor Who will return this Autumn to BBC One and BBC One HD.

Torchwood: Fallout Audio - Cover & Info

BBC Audio have revealed the cover and synopsis of a new Torchwood CD audio story:

FALLOUT - written by David Llewellyn, read by Tom Price
Tom Price reads this exclusive audio adventure set after the conclusion of Miracle Day, featuring Gwen Cooper and Sgt Andy Davidson dealing with a bizarre double shooting and a deadly alien virus.

When Yasmin finds a jeweled egg in her grandfather’s shed, her first thought is to sell it. Unfortunately, the object is no valuable FabergĂ© antique, but a dangerous weapon from another planet. Worse still, the buyer she finds online is a Russian secret agent working for the Committee for Extraterrestrial Research, who promptly swipes it, kills her brother Sayed and lands her in hospital.

When Sgt Andy Davidson realises that he’s not dealing with an ordinary double shooting, he calls Gwen Cooper, who breaks the bad news about the egg and its deadly contents. With no Torchwood to help, and Gwen in America, it’s up to Andy and Yasmin to follow the trail of the ‘Shiva virus’ - all the way from Cardiff to the British Museum...

Torchwood: Fallout is on sale at all good CD stores from 5th April priced £10.20 per copy.
