RUMOR: Jenna Coleman Of DOCTOR WHO Leaving Role at Christmas?
The Mirror is reporting that Jenna Coleman will be leaving her role as the current companion of British sci-fi drama Doctor Who after the next season's special Christmas episode. Check out the details!
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.
