The name of the companion

What a week! Grandmomma fell and is back in the hospital - but we think she's relatively okay. 

Then Phoenix Comicon announced Jenna Coleman will be appearing one day only on Sunday, May 28, 2017.

Jenna Coleman is an English actress best known for her role as Clara Oswald in the British television series Doctor Who.

Born in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, Coleman began her tenure as the 11th Doctor's companion in 2012 on the long running BBC series Doctor Who. Sworn to secrecy during the audition process, Coleman would refer to the project only as Men on Waves (an anagram for "Woman Seven") when asked what she was auditioning for. Producer Steven Moffat remarked that one of the primary reasons Coleman landed the coveted spot was because of the chemistry she shared with Smith and her innate ability to talk faster than him during scenes together.

Coleman's first appearance as The Doctor's companion was originally planned to happen on the 2012 Christmas special. However, she made a surprise appearance  in Asylum of the Daleks playing a relative of her character Clara Oswald, Oswin Oswald. Oswin subsequently died later in that particular episode and appeared again as her own distant relative in the episode, The Snowmen. Her final incarnation as Clara Oswald was introduced in the episode, The Bells of Saint John, where she carried on as The Doctor's regular companion, continuing on in her role as companion when current Doctor, Peter Capaldi, stepped into the role as the 12th Doctor. Her run as Clara Oswald concluded in 2015 with the show's ninth series.

In 2016, Coleman was seen in the television drama Victoria as Queen Victoria. Chronicling the early life of the Queen from her accession to the throne to her courtship with Prince Albert, the series aired to rave reviews on ITV in the United Kingdom. Following the success of the first round of episodes, a second series has been ordered and is currently in production.
