As you already know,Â Jenna-Louise Coleman is going to replace Karen Gillan as new Doctor Who companion. The next quote is the first part from the interview taken by Radio Times in late March 2012 about the role, the audition and the secrecy she had to keep for some time.
Jenna-Louise Colemanâ€™s audition for the part of the new companion in Doctor Who to replace Karen Gillanâ€™s Amy Pond was shrouded in such secrecy that the show had a codename: Men on Waves.
â€œI wasnâ€™t allowed to say it was Doctor Who at any point â€“ not talking to my agent, not when I arrived at the audition, and I certainly couldnâ€™t tell anyone at all what I was up to next,â€ the 25-year-old actress says, admitting that she was surprised at how good a fibber she became.
â€œWhen she was auditioning, Karen Gillan had been given a codename â€“ Panic Moon, which is an anagram of Companion â€“ so I worked out that Men on Waves is an anagram of Woman Seven, because this is the seventh series. Weirdly, seven is my lucky number and this is my seventh job.â€
