Doctor Who star Matt Smith has teased that Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) changes The Doctor's view of the universe.

Smith offered hints on this weekend's episode 'The Bells of St John' to the Yorkshire Evening Post by revealing that Clara is quite different than any of The Doctor's previous companions.

"Clara reignites his curiosity in the universe and gives him his mojo back, for want of a better word," the actor teased.

He added of new co-star Coleman: "You'll see on screen she's absolutely brilliant and it's been a joy. I'm really proud of the work we've done and I think it's exciting for the character, he's got a new lease of life somehow.

"Jenna's inventive, she works tirelessly hard. I like her, which is good because you've got to get on. And I'm really proud of what she's achieved and I'm pleased that it's gone so well for her because I think she's brilliant in it."
