Coleman to play Dr. Who's new companion
TV time traveller Doctor Who has a new sidekick - former soap star Jenna-Louise Coleman has been cast as his new assistant.
The 25-year-old ex-Emmerdale star, who played Connie in last year's (11) Captain America: The First Avenger, will join Matt Smith in the cult sci-fi drama.
She'll replace Karen Gillan, who will depart the series later this year (12).
Coleman 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."
