We have a new photo of the new companion on Doctor Who.

As previously announced, Jenna-Louise Coleman will come on board this BBC hit later in the year, taking over for Karen Gillan as the sidekick for Matt Smith's TARDIS-traveling Time Lord. (Arthur Darvill is also exiting as Rory).

And while details of Amy and Rory's departure remain under wraps, the series is teasing fans here with its first official promotional shot of the upcoming tandem:

Here is what we do know about plans to replace Amy with the long-running show's latest companion:

"Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter w/ the Weeping Angels in ep 5. Not everyone gets out alive & I mean it this time," Tweeted creator Steven Moffat in March.

Here's what else we know: we'll be tuning in to see how it all goes down.

The Doctor: Clara? You asked me what we're going to do, I told ya. We're going to go to hell, or wherever it is people go when they die, if there is anywhere. Whatever it is we're gonna go there and we're gonna find Danny. And if it is in any way possible, we're going to bring him home. Every culture has a concept of an afterlife. I always meant to have a look around, see if I could find one.
Clara: You're going to help me?
The Doctor: Well, why wouldn't I help you?
Clara: Because of what I just did, I just...
The Doctor: You betrayed me. You betrayed our trust, you betrayed our friendship, you betrayed everything that I've ever stood for. You let me down!
Clara: Then why are you helping me?
The Doctor: Why? Do you think that I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?
