Doctor Who Christmas special: Jenna Coleman interview with The Telegraph
If you want to know about Jenna’s backstory, this interview is the one to read. It’s also just an awesome trip to the set through the eyes of a Whovian:





It’s a very odd thing, going to the set of Doctor Who in Cardiff. For a start the BBC is so secretive about the programme’s storylines that virtually no one is allowed access, and I have to sign various forms in advance stating that I will not reveal a single thing about any of the plot I am going to witness.


I am not even sure if I am allowed to mention anything at all, but I think it’s fair to say the TARDIS is bigger than I thought it would be and the sets are more wobbly. Also, it’s freezing cold and it takes an inordinate amount of time for anything to happen. Matt Smith, aka the Doctor, leaps in and out of the TARDIS about 20 times before the action moves on. It must be, I think, an utterly exhausting programme to work on.


It is also, without doubt, phenomenally successful. The doctor and his ‘companion’ may change but as the years pass the essence of Doctor Who remains the same. It is the key to the programme’s success, the madcap secret storylines and the fact that somehow, within all the mayhem, the viewer is taken on an emotional rollercoaster. We become invested in the Doctor and in his crazy adventures.

In fact, as soon as a new Doctor is announced, people start wondering who will be his successor. The same goes for his companion.



This ‘Must Read’ is as must ready as it gets.
