The 28-year-old actress who plays companion Clara Oswald joined her new Doctor Peter Capaldi, Samuel Anderson, and show runner Steven Moffatt for the event.
“She meets a man called Danny Pink â€“ a teacher â€“ whoâ€™s charming and lovely. Heâ€™s that perfect boyfriend really and is very supportive, but he doesnâ€™t know anything about this double life she lives,” Jenna explained about Clara’s new relationship with Sam‘s character.
She added, “She tries to hide it from him while at the same time falling in love. She becomes very torn between the two. Itâ€™s almost as if sheâ€™s having an affair, without having an affair, but the lying becomes more and more. Basically sheâ€™s trying to manage the two, and have these two men in her life. It becomes quite a hurtful thing and quite a hard thing for her because sheâ€™s totally torn between the two, and trying to have both at once without being able to do it successfully.”
