Jenna-Louise Coleman has opened up about Dame Diana Rigg’s upcoming appearance in Doctor Who.
Rigg will appear with her daughter Rachael Stirling in the Mark Gatiss-penned ‘The Crimson Horror’, which will centre on a mother and daughter harbouring a dark secret.
Speaking to Vulture, Coleman offered the first hints on what fans can expect from Rigg’s guest appearance.
“Oh my God, she was so funny on set. She’s got a lot of banter on her,” Coleman declared. “I think [co-star Matt Smith] described her role as an old hag – but in the best possible way.”
Coleman added of ‘The Crimson Horror’s storyline: “She’s our villain and she runs a place in 1800 Yorkshire called Sweetville, which is kind of Stepford Wives-y. She has a big factory and she’s up to no good. Her daughter, Rachael Stirling, is also playing her daughter on the show, and they just go at each other.”
Coleman also spoke more generally about the secretive nature of Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat’s plans for each series.
“He’s good with his secrets. But I was quite adamant about not needing to know,” she said. “Matt didn’t know [Clara's mystery] either, not until the script came through and then we were both like, ‘Aaah!’ It’s also always a work in progress.”
She continued: “We go through a lot of script changes, things are always evolving and being tailored, so I think Steven likes to play things close to the vest until he’s sussed them out properly.”
Coleman will additionally be starring in the upcoming Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, opposite Smith, former Doctor David Tennant, Billie Piper, Joanna Page and John Hurt.
The BBC revealed earlier in the week that the 50th anniversary special will also see the return of the classic series villains the Zygons.
The first pictures 50th anniversary-related has been released! A couple of photos from the read-through have been posted yesterday from the Doctor Who Official Twitter and Facebook, the first showed Matt Smith and David Tennant (which can be seen here) and the second one Jenna, Matt, David and Joanna Page, that I’ve added to the gallery:
Jenna-Louise Coleman has only just begun her role as the Doctor’s companion, so we weren’t expecting her to leave the series anytime soon. But the former Emmerdale actress has now confirmed her involvement in the eighth run of Doctor Who in which she plays the mysterious Clara Oswald.
When questioned by BBC Radio 5 Live about her continued involvement in the rebooted BBC serial following her full debut in last year’s Christmas Special, she replied, “I think I can say that? I can say I will be in season eight.”
Coleman also revealed that due to her co-star Matt Smith’s busy filming schedule – he recently landed a role in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut How To Catch A Monster – production on the next series will not begin until September.
Radio 5 were also joined by Doctor Who producer Marcus Wilson who was predictably cryptic about the second half of series seven, due to begin on BBC1 on Saturday 30 March: “It’s an epic series – Steven’s raised the bar again. It’s full of huge variety. We get to see some old friends, some old aliens, but running through is the delicious mystery of the impossible girl who is Clara Oswald.”
Talking about Clara’s partnership with the Doctor, Coleman added, “It’s not as straightforward as them being great friends who go on this adventure – there’s so much subtext of them both trying to figure each other out. I have the idea they’re magnetically drawn to each other”.
During the 15-minute interview she also chatted about the new interior of the Tardis – “I’ve never seen Matt so excited to have his toy back” – and revealed what her codename was during the audition process for the role. Listen to the full interview below:
