Jenna Coleman to leave Doctor Who this season
by Doc on Sep.16, 2015, under Television
With Season 9 poised to start, companion Jenna Coleman, who currently plays Clara Oswald on Doctor Who, will be leaving at some point, likely before the Christmas Special.
What was apparently a tightly-kept secret, Coleman was given the starring role in ITV’s eight-part, £10 million drama Victoria, about the 19th century (and until recently the longest-serving) British Monarch.
Her three years opposite both Matt Smith and now Peter Capaldi has made her the longest serving companion to the Doctor since the show was revived in 2005.
