It's unconfirmed, but it appears that Jenna Coleman will be leaving Doctor Who in the Christmas Special later this year. If it's true, Clara Oswald's total time with The Doctor will end after one and a half seasons, and three specials. This will make her the third longest companion in New Who, just behind Amy Pond and Rose Tyler.
We learned earlier this year that Samuel Anderson will be joing Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi in the TARDIS as Danny Pink who teaches with Clara at Coal Hill School. Now, it appears that the Doctor will be joined by a student of the school as well played by Ellis George.
While little is known about her character, with two teachers, a student and The Doctor in the TARDIS, the 12th Doctor is looking more and more like the First.
In a video for the new exclusive adventure at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, Peter Capaldi's 12th Doctor not only climbs aboard several classic TARDIS designs, he also gets a message from one of The Doctor's classic companions, the Time Lady, Romana II (Lalla Ward).
Does this mean Romana is hanging out on a time-locked Gallifrey. Whovians can only hope!
