A recent update on the online CV of Catrin Stewart has revealed that she’ll be appearing in Series 6 of Doctor Who.

Her casting will no doubt lead to speculation among fans (in case we haven’t got enough already!) as a result of her character’s name. Of course, a name is just a name, and we’ve got no other proof at the moment, but, interestingly, she’ll playing a character called (highlight to reveal) Jenny in a forthcoming episode. Make of it what you will, but it’s interesting to contemplate over nonetheless…

Stewart has previously appeared in Casualty, Misfits, and on stage in A Doll’s House.

    As the article says, spoilers.

    It would be really great to see Jenny (The Doctor’s clone daughter) again and for the new actress to be proof she could regenerate, since we’re still not sure she could, but I can’t believe it’ll be the case personally.

    Right now, I’m inclined to think it’s a coincidence that her name’s Jenny, but it would be great to see the Doctor’s daughter Jenny again one day and for her to be established as a proper Time Lady, rather than a clone that can’t regenerate.

    Eeee, I like this spoiler. We’ve been waiting for this since series 4, if it is implying what we’re inferring. :D

    I hope it’s a different character. I might just be the only person who wishes Stephen Moffat had stayed quiet and not made his off-the-cuff remark to RTD that Jenny should live and zoom away at the conclusion of “Doctor’s Daughter”. Besides simply not caring for the character, I feel her “coming back to life” really negated the fantastic preceding scene in which David Tennant displayed such incredible emotion at the loss of Jenny. Of course, that’s just me.

    I think I’m just a bit bored of the whole “Last of The Time Lords” thing, that the Doctor has no equal, it’d be cool to have another Time Lord out there, or even better, a Time Lady.

    I’m still inclined to think this Jenny won’t be the Doctor’s daughter, but who knows.

    Personally, I think the name of the character is just a coincidence. I would think that, if Jenny were to come back, either Georgia Moffett would return, or they would have a different name attached to the character to surprise the fans with her regeneration. I could be wrong, though. With the end of “The Doctor’s Daughter,” it sure seems like Jenny’s return is inevitable.
