Today the British newspaper/their website, The Mirror, is claiming Jenna Coleman (currently playing companion Clara Oswald) will leave the popular BBC sci-fi show 'Doctor Who' in this year’s Christmas special.
 
The actress, 28, is believed to be quitting her role as the Time Lord’s assistant in a sensational Christmas storyline.
Her exit could bring an end to her 18 months as Clara Oswald, creating a vacancy for another sidekick to star alongside new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi.
Yesterday a source said: "The conversations about Jenna's exit have started, and a plan is in place which is being ironed out."
"By the time she leaves she will be one of the longest-standing companions ever. She has been absolutely brilliant in the role, but everyone agrees it is a part that should change after a period."
The source added: "It was very much a mutual decision. It's important to keep the series moving and fast-paced, and the time is just starting to feel right and the feeling is that it could be a perfect Christmas storyline."
The BBC refused to comment on Jenna-Louise's exit.


Given the source, I personally would take this with a large dose of salt until we hear official word (although they have been right about these things on a rare occasion - even on the last Doctor, Matt Smith's, exit).


The Season Eight premiere 'Deep Breath' is set to star new Doctor Peter Capaldi with Jenna Coleman as returning companion Clara Oswald, airing August 23rd and showing in cinemas worldwide
It was recently said that Capaldi' will also be staying for the Christmas Special with Coleman, and it will be filming after their World Tour.

She was okay, but no Amy Pond.

One of the most unremarkable companions in the show's history. Not bad, not good.
Doopie - 8/16/2014, 5:20 PM
it's because she's been cast in the DCCU
Nick56 - 8/16/2014, 5:23 PM
Noooooooo! She is my favourite companion since Rose
SuperCat - 8/16/2014, 5:30 PM
Nooooooo! I've never watched this show.
COREY6487 - 8/16/2014, 5:33 PM
watch out... if you aint a power user the articles get deleted... nothing wrong with the one i made at all yet the arseholes thought it necessary to get rid of it.
SuperDude001 - 8/16/2014, 5:40 PM
@COREY6487 I know users have had trouble with the editors/power users in the past, some more justifiable than others, but I must say they've all been kind and helpful over my more popular news articles. And to be honest I just stick to reporting Doctor Who stuff most of the time which they only seem to care about on slow news days or the massive announcements, so I don't think this is something that would start any problems.
Though it would be great if people would 'thumbs up' this just so it has a chance of getting more attention on the site, even though I see there are not many Whovians on CBM.
Altair - 8/16/2014, 5:42 PM
@COREY6487 Is that necessary to bring up here man? I get that you're frustrated but this isn't the place. Honestly if you have a problem with one of the power users just contact and talk it out like a grown man instead of just bitching in the comments.
Altair - 8/16/2014, 5:42 PM
Also, @SuperDude001 Thumbs'd
COREY6487 - 8/16/2014, 5:50 PM
Altair

how can i? the person didnt even bother to give me a reason let alone give me the name. if the person gave me a reason then i wouldnt need to feel upset about it.

im just not gonna bother doing one again.
DarthCMPunk - 8/16/2014, 5:58 PM
Nooooo she's the hottest companion on the show, she can't leave me....I mean it
dellamorte1872 - 8/16/2014, 5:59 PM
why are people shocked at this? usually companions that "carry over" to NEW DR end up only sticking around for a season. remember; ROSE, MEL, TURLOUGH, ADRICK. this DR has to find his OWN PERSONALLY PICKED COMPANION. and from what ive seen CAPALDI will have a black male as HIS companion. if they dont somehow meld CAPALDI with the VALEYARD, MOFFET is missing a golden opportunity to bring in the trial of the time lord full circle! it would fill in some plot points
Altair - 8/16/2014, 6:01 PM
@COREY6487

I agree that sucks, but I also agree with MarkyMark, don't give up. Sometimes you lose but you got to keep trying man, we all get our articles deleted now and then.
dellamorte1872 - 8/16/2014, 6:02 PM
and CAPALDI resembles THE VALEYARD to a LARGE degree
SuperDude001 - 8/16/2014, 6:13 PM
@dellamorte1872 Probably surprised as technically she's only done a season and half, one of those seasons hasn't even premiered yet. I mean it feels like more certainly as she's done so many special episode but still it's reasonable to be surprised.
And if you mean Danny Pink as the male companion, I think he'll only stick around while Coleman's around. Seems he's gonna be her Rory to her Amy.
AlexanderLykins - 8/16/2014, 6:25 PM
I only know about this show because I heard Karen Gillan was in it.

dellamorte1872 - 8/16/2014, 6:35 PM
those specials still encompass a seasons worth of funding. in a way i'd argue she was more important too bc she even popped up in episodes prior to her officially joining the cast I.E run you clever boy!
MyNameIsSid - 8/16/2014, 6:41 PM
Shit...she is beautiful but it will be nice to get a new companion
ALmazing - 8/16/2014, 6:48 PM
As a fan of the show I have to say that I am indifferent about her leaving the Dr who, so far she hasn't made much of an impact anyway.
Shroombeast - 8/16/2014, 7:46 PM
I love Clara. The haters can [frick] right off for all I care. I'll miss her whenever she finally leaves.

Also, as much as I love Karen Gillan, I think Amy Pond is highly overrated.
McGee - 8/16/2014, 7:51 PM
They need to do an American adaptation of Doctor Who and get a crazy black guy as the companion like Chris Tucker or Kevin Hart.

Robin Williams could be the American Doctor.
SuperDude001 - 8/16/2014, 8:03 PM
@McGee The closest you'll get to that is Inspector Spacetime and that's good enough.
SniktBub - 8/16/2014, 8:24 PM
I missed the part where it said "comic" "book" or "movie". Also I missed the pat where someone cares
MrStarLord - 8/16/2014, 8:32 PM
She was at least a better companion then Rose, I thought she was a horrible person 1) because Rose got pissed to find out The Doctor used be married( seriously he was 904 years old did she think he was a virgin)and 2)she was always jealous and rude to most people.
SimyJo - 8/16/2014, 8:47 PM
I feel like her character would propbably be a bit of a fifth wheel to the Dr seeing as though Capaldi stipulated in his agreement to become The Dr - that there would be no flirting with companions in this one - he's supposed to be a more serious and dramatic Dr - like Tom Baker's was.... and not a clown like the last two Dr's have been.
buctom13 - 8/16/2014, 10:40 PM
that show is complete garbage its worse than the syfy channels films
TheSoulEater - 8/16/2014, 10:42 PM
GAP EFFING DAMN IT!!!

Marxman12 - 8/16/2014, 10:50 PM
I've watched a few episodes. I don't understand the appeal.
Dandy - 8/16/2014, 11:14 PM
She was one of the more boring companions of New Who. She had an interesting arc and mystery but as a character was dull.

So I'm not exactly bawling my eyes out.


Can't wait for the new season though.
Dandy - 8/16/2014, 11:17 PM
Also can we get a companion from the past? We've only had ones from the future (River, Jack Harkness) or the past in New Who.


My favorite companion is STILL Jamie McCrimmon who was a scottish highlander and completely out of his depth in terms of knowledge and technology but still loved an adventure and was good in a brawl. Let's get someone like that!
KilledHal9000 - 8/16/2014, 11:40 PM
Who [frick]ing cares?
KilledHal9000 - 8/16/2014, 11:40 PM
Dr Who is stupid and not based on a comic book, but I get it.
batman001 - 8/17/2014, 12:56 AM
longest companion ever do these people even watch the show sarah jane lasted longer
loki668 - 8/17/2014, 1:17 AM
I agree with McGee!! They should do an American version of this show and set it in the 90s. Call it: Dr. Hoobastank!!
Robe - 8/17/2014, 1:21 AM
Actually Doctor Who is also a comic book.
SuperDude001 - 8/17/2014, 2:04 AM
@BatManHisenberg @KilledHal9000 Star Wars and Star Trek aren't based off a comic book, yet it has one (like this, which has several) so it's posted on this site. I don't care for you personal bias, or even my own when it come down to it. It is statistically "the most successful sci-fi series [in the world]" and the "longest running science fiction series in the world". At once it was broadcast in 94 countries, has millions of viewers, and global fandom. You may not care, but shut up. I've just proven people do care, the 'thumbs up' function only draws the article to higher attention it's still the power users/decision to post this so they care a little, and frankly if you don't [frick]ing care just shut up about it and don't read the [frick]ing article.
dezdigi - 8/17/2014, 2:19 AM
Every time. Dumb asses flock to a Dr. Who article.
Gruff - 8/17/2014, 3:02 AM
"By the time she leaves she will be one of the longest-standing companions ever." She's only been in it for half a season. By Christmas time she'll have been in it for another half season. Sarah Jane Smith, Rose Tyler and Amy Pond easily beat her. Stupid reporting.
SuperDude001 - 8/17/2014, 9:24 AM
@TheFornicator Why are you having a go at me? I didn't say anything to you.
And "your shit is weak" what on Earth does that even mean? Speak english, or at least any other real language.
And dude if you don't care about Doctor Who, fine a lot of people don't, I have no problem with those I commented to no liking the show, but my rant (which I apologize was a little high-tempered) was made because it is clear in the geek community that is CBM, Doctor Who is a subject that should at least very lightly be covered so I'm gonna report it (and Sarah Jane Adventures ended years ago and had no where [frick]ing near the following Doctor Who has so calm down). People don't have to like the show, they could just shut up about not caring about it when there are fans on CBM who do as it waste both my time and their own. So chill dude.
