Doctor Who New Assistant Name Revealed
Name of character played by Jenna-Louise Coleman leaks in press...
Doctor Who's next assistant will be called Clara Oswin, it has been reported.
The Mirror newspaper claims that the character, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, will be "a computer whizz who is feisty and flirty" and "more than a match for the Timelord".
The paper also reports that she will initially simply be referred to as "Oswin" by the Doctor - and that one of her opening lines to Matt Smith is: "Rescue me boy and show me the stars."
Current assistant Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan, is to depart from the show in episode five of the forthcoming series.
The new series, the seventh since the BBC re-booted the cult sci-fi show, is due to begin with Asylum Of The Daleks at the end of the month.
