Jenna-Louise Coleman says 'Doctor Who' fans are in for a "treat" when they see the sci-fi show's "epic" 50th anniversary special episode
Jenna-Louise Coleman says the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary episode is "epic".
The 26-year-old star - who portrays the Time Lord's new companion Clara Oswald - believes the forthcoming special programme will be a "treat" for the long-serving fans of the BBC One sci-fi show, and she has been trying to perfect a way to keep the plot details a secret.
She said: "How do I say without saying anything? This is a new skill that I'm learning. Reading especially the finale of this season as well, without giving too much away, it really is epic and I think it's really a treat for the fans of the last 50 years."
Matt Smith - who stars alongside Jenna as the titular Time Lord in the show - loved the 50th anniversary script so much he started clapping after he read it, and insists 2013 will be the "biggest, the best, the most inventive, and the most exciting" year for the programme.
Speaking at a Q&A held to launch the new series of 'Doctor Who' in London, he explained: "It sort of does what it says on the tin. You won't be disappointed. It's my cryptic way of going ... no, the thing is, much as we'd love to tell you everything, I read it and I clapped at the end. I think it's hilarious and I think it's epic and I think it's vast. I'm telling you nothing more.
"But you will not be disappointed. I think it's going to be the biggest, the best, the most inventive, the most exciting year for the show. And I think this script, it delivers on all those points that you want it to for where the show is at this time. It's brilliant.
"It somehow manages to pay homage to everything and look forward. And I think that's the mark, the genius of it."
