Takes Some to Know One: Companion Advice

Here’s a bit of practical advice from former DOCTOR WHO companions Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill (ex-Amy and ex-Rory) to the incoming companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. I like that Karen and Arthur weren’t silly or sarcastic – but also at a loss for words to describe the experience. Which I believe. I mean, how would you tell someone to prepare to play a companion on DOCTOR WHO? Maybe, brush up on a field guide to dinosaurs? I’d probably say, “Ask the costumer for sneakers!”

We have to wait until Christmas to see Coleman in her new(?) role, and whether she took the advice of the Ponds Williamses.
