“I had my first scenes with the TARDIS the other day,” said the 26-year-old actress, who plays Oswin Oswald, Doctor Who’s new companion.

“In fact, I had an argument with the TARDIS. I fell through it. I had to bang on the doors, and the doors weren’t shut properly, so in front of all the crew I went flying through it. It’s on camera.

“I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, I’ve broken the TARDIS, everyone’s going to hate me.'”

However, show bosses assured Jenna-Louise that mishaps were common – and that co-star Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, is the most accident prone of all.

She added to Doctor Who magazine: “He didn’t tell me that.”

Doctor Who airs on BBC One on Saturdays.
