Peter Capaldi denies rumours of Jenna-Louise Coleman leaving Doctor Who

August 22nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

With rumours running wild that Jenna-Louise Coleman is leaving the TARDIS this Christmas and bookies taking bets on who will replace her (here) the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, has stepped up to, em, clara-fy (never gets old) things.

Speaking to The One Show, Capaldi said: “I’m not looking for a new assistant. I don’t know where these rumours have started. I’ve read she may be leaving at Christmas, but I don’t even know if she’ll get to Christmas, you’ll have to watch it and see what happens.”

He added: “She’s been called upon to do things that I don’t think any other companion has had to do, to show a kind of emotional range and I think she’s done it absolutely brilliantly.”

So he’s saying she might not even make it to Christmas? We’re confused…

Doctor Who returns to BBC  and BBC America tomorrow night, Saturday, August 23rd 2014

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
