The actress spoke about the new Doctor via satellite at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Jenna Coleman was for many one of the most brilliant pieces of modern-day 'Doctor Who', having played the Doctor's companion Clara over 40 episodes and bringing some of the most memorable scenes of recent series to the small screen. Always giving a fantastic performance, many were sad to see Coleman go when she left the show earlier this year, but now she's moved onto other ventures, including ITV's period drama 'Victoria', following the life of the monarch Queen Victoria in her earlier days on the throne.
