All the sad goodbyes! D:
I just want people to look back over the Pond era fondly. I have had the best years of my life on this show, hand on my heart. - Karen Gillain
Should’ve said “Remember me”

I think I like Marvel more than DC.
Batman is cool and all.
And The Justice League is pretty cool.
But the X-Men.
Oh, the X-Men.
Mirrored Sunglasses. It’s safe to blink now.
“What’s the point in them being happy now if you know they’re going to be sad later? The answer is, of course, because they are going to be sad later.”
The Great Jenna-Louise Coleman Roundup Super Post.
First: thanks to everyone for hanging in there today as this blog became a Jenna-Louise Coleman Appreciation Blog. It’s been two years since the last companion change. Moments like this are rare so we have to make the most of it.
As most of you should know by now, actress Jenna-Louise Coleman was announced as The Doctor’s next companion beginning with the 2012 Christmas Special.
So who is Jenna-Louise Coleman? So glad you asked!
Later this month she’ll appear in an ITV dramatic miniseries about the sinking of the Titanic. The title of the series is ‘Titanic’.
She’s also the voice of Melia in Xenoblade for Wii.
You can see clips of her work on other shows over at Anglophenia.
Best of all, according to Steve Moffat, she’s clever:
“I think she’s possibly the only person I’ve ever heard go faster than Matt.”
When she found out that she got the part, she was in a store holding an avocado.
This has led to a good-hearted but comical Whovian takeover of the ‘avocado’ tag on Tumblr thus confusing healthspo/thinspo Tumblrs everywhere.
David Tennant approves as do former Classic Who companions Katy Manning and Anneke Wills. Matt is so excited that he sent her a very Matt-sounding text.
We assume he sent it before he and Arthur started posting pictures to Twitter and Instagram.
Yes it is, Arthur. Yes. It. Is.
Speaking of Twitter, Jenna doesn’t have one. Yet.
Beware of imposters.
Also, there was news about episode count for series 7:
There will be 6 episodes this year, including the Christmas Special, then 8 next year. Again, Jenna’s character will first be seen at Xmas.
And Steven Moffat revealed a big spoiler >DO NOT CLICK THE FOLLOWING LINK!!!< which we hid behind a ‘Read more’.
So that’s it for today. We’re sure that we’ll have more as the days and months go on.
Welcome to the family, Jenna-Louise Coleman. We’re all a bit mad here and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
