Jenna-Louise is ?

New companion Jenna-Louise Coleman is almost as in the dark as Doctor Who fans, it would seem.

In an interview from the new issue of Radio Times, the actress revealed she doesn’t even know her character’s name yet.

“I have an idea of the story, of the character and of a few surprises, but I don’t know her name or where she’s from. I just told Steven [Moffat] and Caroline Skinner ‘Don’t tell me anything until I need to know it’,” she said.

Jenna-Louise also spoke about the extreme levels of secrecy she had to keep: ‘I wasn’t allowed to say it was Doctor Who at any point – not talking to my agent, not when I arrived at the audition, and I certainly couldn’t tell anyone at all what I was up to next.

“When she was auditioning, Karen Gillan had been given a codename – Panic Moon, which is an anagram of Companion – so I worked out that Men on Waves is an anagram of Woman Seven, because this is the seventh series.

“Weirdly, seven is my lucky number and this is my seventh job.”
