Curiously, though, what sources are these? In any case, I hope she stays for a full series, at least.

Re: 800th Episode - 2014 Christmas Special (Rumour's/Poss. Spoilers)

I guess it would make sense for Jenna/Clara to leave, since her story as "the impossible girl" is done and she was cast like 18 months ago, even if she's only been around for 12 stories or whatever it's been. I would like her to be around for the whole of series 8 too, but who knows what sort of wonky timeframe they have for filming. Jenna might think it's time to jump ship if they keep doing this split-series mess.

On the other hand, it would give the series a completely new start with a new Doctor and new companion.

Re: 800th Episode - 2014 Christmas Special (Rumour's/Poss. Spoilers)

I think Capaldi will be around for more than a year and I don't think the fact that he's an in demand actor will make that much difference really. In fact I think the BBC and Moffat have played a bit a blinder.

Capaldi's already made it and he's a fan, he's done all the hard work and can now take the role of a lifetime. This is different from Eccleston, who you could argue had already made it but didn't have that connection with the franchise, Tennant, who had that connection, but was also young and with a desire to move on to other things, and Smith, who didn't have that connection with the show (even if he seems to have developed one over the years in a way) and again is at the start of his career.

By contrast Capaldi isn't going to decide he needs to crack Hollywood any time soon. He’s probably made enough money that he and his family are comfortably off so he doesn’t need to take every job going. No I think he’ll do the job for 3 or 4 years. I think he’ll have enough eventually, and by all accounts it is a punishing schedule so by the time he’s 60 he might have decided enough’s enough, but he seems in good health, he certainly doesn’t look like he’s mid-fifties, so this may not be an issue. Of course you can never predict these things, and the older you get the more likely you are to experience health problems, but that aside I’ll be amazed if he’s a one series wonder.

As for Clara. Well lovely as Jenna is I’ve never really bonded with Clara in the same way I have with other companions. Don’t get me wrong, she’s way better than Martha or Series 2 (onwards) Rose but I don’t think she’s ever going to trouble my top five. It would be good to have her do at least half a series with 12 though.

Just curious, but what makes you say that? His age? Something else?

Partly age, but mostly availability. He's very much in demand.

^ I'm hoping that the fact that he is both established and a huge fan will mean that he doesn't feel the need to build a career elsewhere. It could be a good combination that keeps him around for several years. But, we'll see.

It was mentioned earlier that a Hiatus year after Series 8 might lead Capaldi to just do a single Series, but, I would think, a Hiatus year, might allow him to get some other stuff, and therefore, be able to stay longer than a single Series (if there's any issue with him being able to stay longer)

A "keep the options open" scenario could be possible. Don't end series 8 with a regeneration, do a gap year and let Capaldi take other work, and if he's free and wants to come back for another series after the gap year he can. If he's not free, he could come back for a regeneration episode. Or, worst case, they slap his costume on the other actor and fake it.

Frankly, I hope the rumors of a 2015 gap year aren't true. It's a horrible idea.

The BBC basically needs to knock if off with the gap years to be perfectly frank. They need to get their shit in order so they can make a standard amount per year.

I'd be surprised if they chose to cast a new Doctor, knowing that they'd have to go through the whole rigmarole of another search a year later.

Nigel Havers, the man who could have been Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager!

Actually, yes, Havers probably would have been a good choice at one time.

Please, God, no gap year. It's been hard enough doing this half-season crap.

Whhhhhat??????

Yep, he's a rare breed. Older, but handsome. Would play a Jon Pertwee like doctor I imagine. Maybe a bit feistier and flirty though.

And Capaldi killed his children in Torchwood, was a main character in Pompeii and even held the tenth doctors hand, oh and Colin Baker played Maxil who even shot the fifth doctor.
