Jenna-Louise Coleman broke the TARDIS on her first day filming with the time-travelling spacecraft - but show bosses reassured her by saying co-star Matt Smith is equally accident prone
Jenna-Louise Coleman broke the TARDIS on her first day filming with it.
The 26-year-old actress admits her early 'Doctor Who' filming as the Time Lord's companion Oswin Oswald didn't go too well as she had an "argument" with the time-travelling spacecraft.
She said: "I had my first scenes with the TARDIS the other day.
"In fact, I had an argument with the TARDIS. I fell through it. I had to bang on the doors, and the doors weren't shut properly, so in front of all the crew I went flying through it. It's on camera.
"I thought, 'Oh my goodness, I've broken the Tardis, everyone's going to hate me.' "
However, show bosses assured Jenna-Louise that mishaps were common - and that co-star Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, is the most accident prone of all.
She added to Doctor Who magazine: "He didn't tell me that."
Former 'Emmerdale' actress Jenna-Louise made her debut appearance in the show's opening episode and will return at Christmas.
'Doctor Who' airs on BBC One on Saturdays.
