Jenna Coleman speaks on stage during the Masterpiece: Victoria panel discussion at the PBS portion of the 2016 Television Critics Association Summer Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (July 28) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
After the panel, Jenna opened up about a possible return to Doctor Who, where she played past companion Clara.
“We had the exit in the works for so long. Who knows, in the future,” she teased. “But I think, at least for a good while, Clara is probably broken down somewhere in time and space, trying to understand how to work a TARDIS with Ashildr [Maisie Williams]. You don’t want to unpick it, in any way. Steven [Moffat] spoke about the exit for so long, and I think he did such a great job…That was that unique time in my life, and that was amazing.”

“What can this girl possibly do to serve her country? – @itv’s #Victoria coming 2016,” the show’s official Instagram captions with the painting-like image of Jenna.
An eight-part mini-series, Victoria centers on the early life of Queen Victoria, from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.
“Victoria is about the most famous monarch and world leader ever, yet what makes it appealing is the common humanity in Victoria; we see her girlish excitement, we see her fall in love, we see her petulance and anger, and we empathise with it,” ITV’s head of drama Steve November shared in a new interview. “It’s about the points where their lives touch ours.”
