Coleman on Smith’s Emotional Exit
Jenna Coleman has spoken about how tough she found it filming Matt Smith’s final scenes as the Doctor.
Coleman told the Radio Times magazine: “It was incredibly emotional – I knew it was going to be difficult but just how emotional I found the process really took me by surprise.
She adds: “I became attached to Matt – it’s such a strange relationship because it really is just the two of you. You spend every day running together and saving the world and each other’s lives… And there’s no other way to describe it other than: he’s my Doctor.”
Coleman also hinted at Capaldi’s opening scene: “He certainly makes an entrance!”
On Series 8, she said: “I know the first script is moments away from reaching my hand so I’m looking forward to that, but I haven’t read anything for the next series yet, so it doesn’t feel like I’m two-timing Matt for now.”
“It’s such a double-act and a partnership. With Peter, we’re a team and we’ve been out for lunch together, getting to know each other. It’ll be great.”
