Farewell Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).

Later this year, Jenna-Louise Coleman will become The Doctor’s (Matt Smith) new sweater-wearing companion on Doctor Who. Coleman will replace Karen Gillan, who, in addition to Arthur Darvill, will make a “heartbreaking departure after one final series of roller-coaster voyages.”

Here, Karen and Matt give advice to the new girl.

“It’s not often The Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it’s about to happen Jenna is going to lead him on his merriest dance yet,” executive producer Steven Moffat said of the new character. “Who she’s playing, how The Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by The Doctor’s standards, this isn’t your usual boy meets girl.”

What do you think of the new companion?
