While Coleman can’t say too much about what’s in store for Clara and the Doctor, she says the first show of the season features a new baddie who she thinks will provide kids with some brand new hidebehind-the-sofa moments.
‘‘ It’s a villain with style, who is kind of terrifying to me,’’ she says.
Filming the new series happened at breakneck speed, but Coleman says there’s no doubt you have a great job ‘‘ when I’m walking on a cloud or when I’m on a motorbike with Dr Who and I’m jetting around London past the Houses of Parliament’’.
There is a Clara doll in the works but Coleman hasn’t seen it, though she says her housemates will probably enjoy having one around.
‘‘ I couldn’t have it in my bedroom, could I?’’ she asks, laughing.
‘‘ Maybe downstairs somewhere, but it’ll be great to keep for my grandchildren.’’ Dr Who, ABC1, Sunday, 7.30pm
