The Eleventh Doctor may have regenerated, but his companion, Clara, is staying on past the fall of the Eleventh – and with filming for series eight of Doctor Who fully underway, Coleman has shared some of her thoughts on the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
Coleman said last night at the National Television Awards to Digital Spy & Radio Times:
“[Peter is] great – of course, we all know he’s going to be wonderful. We’ve got Ben Wheatley directing who is fantastic and it’s great. It’s been great to get up on our feet and get started – we just seem to have taken off like a rocket.”
She also dropped a few hints about the first episode of series eight:
“We pretty much pick up where we left off at Christmas (in The Time of the Doctor) and we carry on the story straight away after the regeneration so we’re dealing with that for the first episode.”
Doctor Who series eight airs on BBC One in autumn 2014.
