Doctor Who’s Matt Smith: ‘New Companion Will Redefine The Doctor’

Matt Smith, who plays the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who has said that Jenna Louise-Coleman’s character will redefine his role as The Doctor.

When asked how The Doctor would change without Amy and Rory, Smith told Heat: “That’s something I’m trying to explore in the playing of him at the moment.

“I think a new companion coming in changes who he is, so hopefully there’ll be some kind of fruits in that relationship redefining him a little.”

Karen Gillan, who plays Amy said: “I think the Doctor’s going to be sad to see the Ponds leave, but he’s also going to carry on, because that’s what he’s done for the past 50 years, essentially.”

Matt Smith then commented on how Jenna Louise-Coleman had been getting on with filming: “She’s doing brilliantly. She’s actually doing night shoots as we speak, poor thing.”
