Former Doctor Who companions Katy Manning (Jo Grant) and Anneke Wills (Polly Wright) tweet about Jenna-Louise Coleman

The new Dr who girl must be absolutely thrilled ! I remember how blown away I was 40 odd years ago xx

What great news! I was only talking about her the other day. Looking forward to seeing Jenna-Louise in action. Welcome to the family! x

Oh my god…I’m crying…I can just remember Elizabeth Sladen…and these gorgeous women…ohmygod…all such great companions…the new girl has a hell of a ladder to climb, hope she gets there…
