Jenna is Going

It's an article full of factual errors but there is the whiff of truth about it all the same...

Re: Jenna is Going

And there was me thinking she would stay forever and never leave the programme.

Well that was sudden. I wonder if something happened?

Re: Jenna is Going

Not here, but recently, I was making aspersions that Jenna had lost her newcarsmell despite spending most of her career just waiting around.

1/2 a season and a few specials, as at least three different characters in 18 months.

Blink and you'd have missed her.

No.

Asylum of the Daleks was September 1, 2012

2 weeks short of two years.

Specials

- The Time of the Doctor (2013) ... Clara
- The Day of the Doctor (2013) ... Clara
- The Snowmen (2012) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)

Regular


- The Name of the Doctor (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- Nightmare in Silver (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- The Crimson Horror (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- Hide (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- Cold War (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- The Rings of Akhaten (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- The Bells of Saint John (2013) ... Clara (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)
- Asylum of the Daleks (2012) ... Oswin (as Jenna-Louise Coleman)

Although, looking at her IMDB, after 170 episodes of Emerdale Farm, she needed a holiday.

Re: Jenna is Going

Frazer Hines holds the record for longest running companion, at 117 episodes. It would take someone in the modern era nine seasons to break that record.

I think it's the phrasing of the article. I'm not surprised. There's the rumor's Clara is getting a love interest, etc. So, unless they want to retread Red Head and Dying Guy... and besides, Clara is beginning to have a life on Earth, AND, her Impossible Girl puzzle piece was solved in the Name of the Doctor... I think the writing has been on the wall.

Not sudden, I bet. Just time.

EDITED TO ADD:
This ALSO makes me believe Capaldi will be around for another series. They wouldn't let the companion AND the Doctor go at the same time. (He says... thinking back to Tennant's last episode... Hm.)

Well, the writing would be a bit shit if they ONLY applied a single story arc to her. Nothing wrong with having an ordinary companion...

Re: Jenna is Going

We should probably hold off until we have word a bit more official than a tabloid. But, if true, I'm not surprised, this seems average run for most companions. I was predicting she might stick around for season 9 but only because I have a feeling season 9 is going to be Moffat's last season, and I wasn't expecting him to create a new companion just before he leaves the show, but I may very well be wrong on that regard.

Re: Jenna is Going

Oh please.

Verification?

Pishaw.

She'd dead to me.

Now, if it so happens that Jena is not leaving, she will have to accept my apology in person.

There's always a bigger picture.

Re: Jenna is Going

I've known that Jenna was leaving for about a month; the solicitation copy for the DWM issues for the end of the year make clear who won't be in the Christmas special.

She's had a two-season run. That's respectable.

Yep, I heard months ago (round about May) that she was only in this one season with Capaldi, so...

I wonder if the new companion is going to be introduced in the Christmas special or if it'll just have a guest companion like most of Tennant's Christmas specials did.

I'm going to guess we won't have a new companion at Christmas, since she (or he?) would have to be cast right around now, and you know that'll steal all the headlines.

Damn, I was hoping this was a false rumor. I really don't want her to go.
