Will Clara’s departure be a major shock?

Filming has begun on this years Doctor Who christmas special, but co-star Jenna Coleman is still refusing to confirm whether or not she will be returning for series 9.  

According to DoctorWho.Tv, filming on the Christmas special is now taking place but Jenna Coleman is refusing to confirm any involvement beyond Series 8. She told the Radio Times the reason why is that it would spoil a surprise coming up.

She recently told the Radiotimes this was due to a major surprise on the way which would spoil the story. “There’s lots of rumours. We’ve sat down with [showrunner] Steven Moffat and we’ve all decided we don’t want anyone to know which way it’s going,” she said, adding “If you know I’m in the next series – or if you know I’m off – you’ll know how the story ends. There’s a surprise we’ve got coming, it’s much better that nobody knows which way it’s going to go – so that’s where we’re trying to keep it at the moment.”

So here we go again… more Moffat misdirection or genuinely talking up a huge plot twist?  Either way it can spell only one thing for Whovians everywhere – disappointment.

Doctor Who series 8 continues this Saturday on BBC 1.

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….
