Happy birthday to the wonderful Jenna, such a fantastic and beautiful actress! Thanks for all those great performances as Clara, who is easily my favourite companion!


And happy birthday Russell! Thank you for bringing Doctor Who back on TV. Even though I started watching it from the classics, I think I would have never heard about Doctor Who if you didn't make it popular once again.

Happy b-day you two! Me, too, today (59-ish)  ; )  Thanks for binging me to The Doctor - finally. I was invited to watch back when I was in college and I did not "get" it back then even tho I was a sci-fi/fantasy fiction fan…Dune, Pern, LOTR, etc. I was just a normal American snob, I guess. Now I can't get enough. I've watched the full re-boot at least four times since last summer (2013). Had been catching it on PBS now and again in 2012 w/David a few times, then most of Matt, until I absolutely had to buy them all. It was the perfect time - just before the 50th. Got the full boxed set through series seven and finished them just in time for the Day of the Doctor. Thank-you, thank-you for all of it and what you both brought to it. Happy Birthday - Bless!

And Happy Birthday to the marvellous Jenna Coleman. A stunningly talented actress through and through. Whilst I didn't warm to Clara at first, as the series progressed I grew to love her more and more and it's all down to Jenna's warmth and charm as an actress. She's given us three different portrayals of essentially the same character. Each have been so different, and yet still loveable. She manages to captivate you and draw you in keeping you engaged - not many actresses can do this. Enjoy your day Jenna!

Happy Birthday to the absolutely incredible Russell T. Davies. He doesn't know this and probably never will, but by bringing back Doctor Who he saved my life. When times were hard and when life just seemed so bleak and pointless, Saturday nights were there to help me through it, he gave me hope and characters that I could love, that would make me laugh and cry. He's my biggest writing inspiration; I love his work so much. I hope he has an absolutely brilliant day!

Happy birthday to both of them! By now, Clara has become my number one favourite companion (knocking off Rose, which is something I never thought could ever happen). And of course, without the brilliant Russell T Davies, Doctor Who would never have come back from the dead. So happy birthday to two brilliant people!

Happy Birthday to the amazing Jenna Coleman. She was brilliant in Emmerdale, she was brilliant in Waterloo Road, and she's brilliant in Doctor Who. I really wanted her to be the next companion when Karen and Arthur left and I was so happy when she got the part because I know how good she is. I hope she has a great day and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank her for playing Clara, who is easily my favourite companion, and I hope that she stays on Doctor Who for a long time. She's a fantastic actress and we're very lucky to have her on the show. I'm really pleased to see that she's doing so well in her career. Happy Birthday again Jenna :)

Dear RTD- I may have criticised some of your scripts, but you ARE the man who brought back Doctor Who. You gave a whole new generation a new program to watch and cause playground discussions just like the children of the 60's, 70's and 80's did. I respect you for undertaking the challenge of bringing back a supposedly dead show and introducing me to the best show ever. Thank you and happy birthday.


Also, happy birthday Jenna. Can't wait to see you in Series 8 and see you work alongside Capaldi. Wait, I doubt neither RTD or Jenna read Who websites, so why am I writing to them personally? Oh well, happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Jenna! Without a doubt she is my favourite Who companion, and also my favourite actress. her performances have been brilliant in every episode so far, and I really can't wait to see her again in Series 8!



And Happy Birthday Russell! Such a great writer, and if Doctor Who hadn't been brought back and Torchwood wasn't created, I'm sure my life would be quite different. I've just started reading 'The Writer's tale' by him and Benjamin Cook, and it's really great seeing his genius thought processes. Probably my favourite DW writer ever!



Hope they both have a brilliant day!

@The Oracle™ I'm really happy that people are warming up to Clara. I've loved her since The Rings of Akhaten and she's become my second favourite companion (behind only Romana). Maybe it's because she's only 1" taller than me and full of all the compassion and sass I wish I had :P
