Billie Piper has been heaping praise on Jenna Coleman this week, and revealed that she’s a big fan of how the former Emmerdale star portrays her character on Doctor Who.

Being cast as the Doctor’s female’s companion is almost as prestigious as being cast as the big man himself, considering the fact that time timelord isn’t likely to take on a female form any time soon, so for any new companion to be praised in her role by someone who used to wear the same shoes, is a massive compliment.

billiepiper_doctorwho

One of the many great things about being Doctor Who is that you never really have to let go – even if you are repeatedly killed on-screen.

However there must come a time when you want to seal that box of memories up and store it away in the vaults of the past so that you can start making new memories without always referring back.
