Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

Has she changed her mind again?

http://deadline.com/2015/04/me-befor...ce-1201403509/

Poking about online doesn't come up with a start date for shooting beyond a vague "soon" but in theory she should be busy in Cardiff until September.

Re: Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

I'd look at Game of Thrones' filming dates for Emilia Clarke's availability and make a determination from that.

It's possible that Coleman's role isn't especially large and she'd only be needed for, at most, a small fraction of the shoot.

Exactly. For all we know, her scenes may take 5 days to shoot or something. Plus it's not like British talent can't juggle series and movies at the same time. The Downton Abbey people have been doing that for several years now, and Jenna herself has done multiple projects during her stint on Doctor Who.

Although that doesn't stop some of them from leaving and breaking our hearts anyway! *Eyes Dan Stevens angrily.*

Re: Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

Still proof of nothing but Jenna has been spotted in London today while the series is busy shooting in Wales. She's also off to a convention in Dallas for three days in May. And hasn't been seen on location since the shooting in Tenerife for the first two episodes back in February.

Are we being set-up for a big surprise...?

(To be honest I always found the idea that she left twice then changed her mind a bit dubious but it would be a good way of setting up a fake-out.)

I hope not. Clara has been my favorite companion of the series since I started watching in 2005, and Moffat clearly said that Jenna was staying for "all" of the next series (I guess he worded it like that to refute tabloid reports that she was departing halfway through). My mega-crush on her aside, she's had great interplay with both her Doctors and I want to see 12 and Clara interact without the angst or "distance" between them that characterized some of series 8.

Re: Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

So Jenna was finally spotted on location last week for the first time in months. But there's a clip from the readthrough for the currently shoting episodes at the offical website. Three guesses who isn't there. Something's going on...

Re: Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

The revived Doctor Who has episodes where the companion or companions are not in the story. It's possible that Coleman is either working on another project or is on vacation, for the week or two she is off.

True. And, honestly, isn't Clara about due for a companion-lite episode? All of the other companions have had one. Rose had "Love & Monsters." Martha had "Blink." Donna had "Midnight" (and isn't in "The Stolen Earth" as much as you might think). Amy & Rory had "The Lodger," "A Christmas Carol," "Closing Time," and "The Doctor, the Widow, & the Wardrobe." Clara was gone for about the first half of "The Crimson Horror" but hasn't really had an entire episode off during her run so far.

Mummy on the Orient Express was considered the companion-lite episode of season 8, and indeed both it and Flatline were filmed simultaneously since there weren't very many scenes in either episode where both Capaldi and Coleman were together.

Technically speaking, Rory didn't exist in The Lodger.

Re: Jenna Signs Up For Movie Role

While I know it's typically frowned upon to write two posts in a row in a certain thread, it's been nearly 24 hours, and I've just learned something new to consider in the speculation of Clara's future on the show.

Specifically, back cover blurbs and front cover images of this year's batch of Twelfth Doctor novels have been released. Three novels due out in the fall. While Clara is in two of them, she is not in Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell. That is she is not on the cover, or mentioned in the blurb. Now while it's true the novel Silhouette from last year's batch did something similar but still had Clara in the novel, that at least still had the bit on the cover stating the novel featured the Doctor as played by Peter Capaldi and Clara as played by Jenna Coleman. However, the blurbs as posted on this site which do include that part, omit Coleman from Big Bang Generation.

At the very least, I'd say the evidence is starting to mount up suggesting Clara will at least be absent for a portion of the season.

I'm wondering if she's going to end up travelling with Missy at the end of the opening two-parter, which would would suggest that the titles of both episodes refer to her.

She's certainly going to miss another week's shooting in May, travelling to Dallas for a three day Convention and back again.

Except for the final line -- "An original novel featuring The Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi" -- the Doctor isn't directly named in the blurb, either. I'd presume that he's "Doc," but I can't say for sure.

Gary Russell writing an Ocean's Eleven-style heist book. *facepalm*

Seriously, though, when I saw that the book takes place in 2015 and one of the characters is named "Legs," my first thought was, "Is that meant to be Amy? She and Rory are still around, living life absent the Doctor." I got momentarily excited -- Amy and Rory meeting the twelfth Doctor out of sequence -- and then I realized that's probably never happening.
