Question: How is Clara feeling about having a new Doctor? Jenna Coleman: For Clara it unbalances her and throws everything up in the air. She has gone from feeling safe - in moments of danger the Doctor would catch her - and thinking she had it all sussed, then suddenly this new guy has come…
It’s a weird situation. You’re stepping into somebody else’s workplace, really. I don’t mean that you become the boss, but you’re the Doctor - you’re the lead character and you’re not really sure how to play that properly. But Jenna made it very, very easy. I was worried that we should get it right between the Doctor and Clara.

But what I realise is that there are even more fans out there that we haven’t got to meet. Fans in villages, and homes and towns and cities all over the world, all over the planet of fans and I just want to say to them, thank you very much for being fans of Doctor Who because Doctor Who belongs to you and the only reason that we here who have the privilege of making the programme are here is because of you. Thank you.

Would you like to be in Doctor Who?’ is the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. It’s a 35-year dream come true. Seven-year old me would be going off his nut and I’m not far behind. It’s a great way to spend a couple of weeks, working with people I’ve always wanted to work with on a show I’ve loved all my life. My bucket list is quite a lot shorter now.

There was a lot of cloak and dagger stuff on the way to the studio; the BBC genuinely felt it had to maintain secrecy so I was taken to a car park, dropped off by one car and put into another car with a blanket over my head. For all I knew, there might have been no one there and it would have been a load of baloney.

I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.
- But just in case anyone wants to talk about how all Muslims support this, read here: ISIS command is completely contrary to Islam’s normative teachings https://t.co/hPA8qS65nP *All persecution is unjust*
Bless the last comment. Islam DOES NOT support this.
My personal life is quite dull, there’s not much to be interested in. I think that’s one of the advantages of being this age, I’m not going to be running around clubs or buying a Ferrari.
