The Doctor with His New Companion

Spy photos from the sets of various episodes of DOCTOR WHO in production are nothing new – but this photo is the first one to show the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) with his new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.

As a bonus, a loyal fan lurking about the set reports that the new character’s name is… is… [SPOILER WARNING!!]… “Clara.” [END SPOILER WARNING!!] Well, that’s… a bit underwhelming, isn’t it? I’m not real impressed by that name, but it may not be the character’s real name.

[ADDITIONAL SPOILER WARNING!!] Word is, the new companion is suffering from amnesia when the Doctor encounters her, and he takes her on few trips in the TARDIS to try to jog her memory. I can totally picture the Doctor dubbing someone Clara as a temporary measure. If she does remember who she is, perhaps she will recall her “real” name. [END ADDITIONAL SPOILER WARNING!!] This photo depicts production of episode 11, which appears to be a historical set in Victorian times.

You will no doubt notice that the Doctor is wearing a waistcoat. The second photo shows that he also has a new long brown coat. While this does look impressive, I hope the wardrobe change is just temporary and story-dictated, as I love Matt’s tweedy professor look.
