She’s still got at least one more series of Doctor Who to come, but Jenna Colemanis already exploring life outside the doors of the TARDIS, as she’s been stepping before cameras on location in Yorkshire over the last week for her latest project Death Comes To Pemberley.

Jenna is playing Lizzy’s younger sister, Lydia Wickham, alongside Watchmen star Matthew Goode as her husband – with both characters integral to the whodunit plot.
