Clara was one of the Doctor’s many companions, and she served as a companion two of them – Matt Smith’s and Peter Capaldi’s versions of the Time Lord.
Jenna, who first appeared on the show in 2012, eventually left in 2015, and she briefly returns for the 2017 Christmas Special, Twice Upon A Time.
Since then, Jenna has gone on to star as Queen Victoria in ITV’s period drama, Victoria, which has proven to be a huge success.
The actress will be on The Jonathan Ross Show this evening to discuss the new season of Victoria which is currently airing on ITV, yet she’ll also speak briefly about her time on Doctor Who.
Jonathan will ask Jenna which is her favourite Doctor, and her response will come as a bit of a shock to most fans of the show.
Many people might think that Jenna would have said Jodie Whittaker – the latest person to take on the iconic role, and the first woman ever to play the Doctor.
Others might expect her to say Matt Smith or Peter Capaldi – the two actors she starred alongside.
However, Jenna will shock everyone when she reveals that David Tennant is, in fact, her favourite.
Jenna was coy about choosing a favourite Doctor before she ended up jokingly whispering, “David Tennant!”
On This Morning back in February, Alex said to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby how much she would want to return.
When asked if she would go back to Doctor Who, Alex excitedly revealed: “Oh, I’m always up for that.”
She went on: “Well, I did’ feel like I’ve ever left because even though I’m not filming, I’m still doing the audiobooks.”
Alex went on to discuss Jodie in the lead role and explained how they met once.
She said: “We bumped into each other at Comic-Con and gave each other a hug.”
Doctor Who will return to BBC One in 2020.
