Both Jenna and Time Lord Matt Smith said they tried to avoid going online too much and did not use Twitter.
Matt said: “I spend so much time on my phone and I find the idea that you communicate your life via Twitter quite peculiar so it doesn’t really interest me. “It is not up my street, I am not on Facebook either, I just cant be bothered.”
Jenna added: “I am the same it is just about trying to keep off the internet really.”
The Doctor has met some impressive figures from history, from Agatha Christie to Elizabeth I, but he’s about to be joined by one of the feistiest females of them all: Queen Nefertiti.
Nefertiti, who was born around 1370 BC, remains best known for her beauty which endures, even today, in the form of her famous bust, now in Berlin’s Neues Museum. The artifact is acclaimed across the world and is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt, inspiring artists for generations. Indeed her name, Nefertiti, means, ‘The beautiful one has arrived’.
Want to find out more about the real Nefertiti?
Aside from her great beauty, Nefertiti is famous for being one of her nation’s most powerful queens. You can read about her and the role of other females in Ancient Egypt in From Warrior Women to Female Pharaohs.

And so anything you read on the Internet about the subject today is probably somebody’s wild guess.
In completely unrelated news: did you know that the BBC writes it’s own Doctor Who
fanfic novellas? There’s an entire section on the Doctor Who Official website. Here’s the artwork for one called Snowfall:
We’re hard at work getting things ready for the Doctor Who Tumblr Meetup at San Diego Comic-Con! (official announcement coming soon.)
Just a reminder that we will NOT be holding this at the San Diego Convention Center. This way EVERYBODY can attend whether they have a ticket for SDCC or not.
Also: it will be all ages. Also: we’re coming up with lots of interesting things to do. Also: there will be punch and pie (or something punch-like and something pie-like.)
Also: there’s a contest to design the art for the Doctor Who Meetup! It’ll be featured (with your tumblr blog’s name) on every invite and every giveaway. You can enter even if you can’t attend the meetup. We’ll say good things about you in your absence. It’ll be like that scene in Vincent and The Doctor.
Also: this will be an official Tumblr meetup which makes us SUUUUPER excited as the Tumblr staff really appreciates us Whovians. We’ve been wanting to do something with them for a while. (They’re co-sponsoring along with BBC America.) No word on whether TommyPom, the official Tumblr Pomeranian is going to show up, tho.
And that’s it for now. More to come soon.
WE’RE VERY EXCITED!!!!!
btw, in order to clear a bunch of messages out of our ask box…
Please don’t believe everything you read on IMDB. Anybody with an account can edit it. In fact, we’ve submitted our own Series 7 cast change for approval:
