Jenna Louise Coleman outed as new Who companion?

British tabloid 'newspaper' The Sun have jumped the gun and announced that former Emmerdale actress Jenna Louise Coleman will be the Doctor's new companion. The paper has a 50/50 record for accurate Doctor Who stories, so the jury is still out as to the legitimacy of this news.

Coleman, who left the Dales in 2009, has since had bit part roles on a number of series and films, most notably the ITV Titanic series due to be broadcast shortly and also the big budget film, Captain America: The First Avenger.


She certainly fits the 'pretty' description in yesterdays rumours although it's debatable whether being in one of the biggest UK soaps for a number of years would mean you weren't a 'household name'. Either way, we'll know for sure very soon - the official announcement is due to hit the official Doctor Who Twitter account first later today.

Other rumours suggest that Sophia Myles presence in Spain during the filming of the 'Western' themed episode penned by Toby Whithouse puts her in the running. Myles previously appeared in the David Tennant story, Girl in the Fireplace and has recently been quite pally with show supremo Stephen Moffat. She's also scheduled to be interviewed in the next issue of Doctor Who Magazine and has been talking about appearing in an upcoming Doctor Who convention.
