Doctor Who's Jenna-Louise Coleman Leaving the Show?

 

Doctor Who’s companion Jenna-Louise Coleman is set to leave the hit BBC show.

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 Doctor’s “companion” has become a key part of the success of the iconic sci-fi series, which returns to our screens on Saturday. There have been almost 60 since the launch in 1963.

The new season of Doctor Who air this Saturday on the BBC.
