After rumors upon rumors, upon rumors, we finally got our answer about Jenna Coleman leaving Doctor Who — she isn’t!
“It’s wonderful,” the 28-year-old actress shared after the Christmas Special aired on Christmas Day (December 25).
Jenna added, “I get a whole other series of stories with the Doctor, and I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved…I think [Clara and the Doctor] finally just reached a point where they really understand each other.”
JJJ could not be more excited about this — are you glad Clara will be around for more adventures on the TARDIS?
Jenna Coleman dons a cute beanie while making her way inside the BBC Radio 1 studios for an interview on Tuesday (December 16) in London, England.
The 28-year-old actress recently opened up about the rumors that her Doctor Who character is expecting a baby.
“This is news to me,” Jenna told EW. “I’m terribly sorry for being so annoying, but Steven [Moffat, executive producer] and the team are very keen for people to not know what’s going to happen, so it is genuinely a surprise.”

Is she going, or is she staying? Jenna Coleman sure knows how to play with JJJ‘s emotions here.
In the latest reports about her character Clara leaving Doctor Who, apparently she’ll be staying on the show with Peter Capaldi!
The Mirror reports that Jenna “had a change of heart about departing and asked to remain for the first half of the new season, to be broadcast next autumn.”
However, the BBC is still keeping mum on the situation. They told RadioTimes, “This is speculation so we won’t be commenting. Viewers will have to watch the Christmas episode to find out!”
Argh! We need to know now!
The Doctor Who Christmas Episode will air on Christmas Day, Thursday, December 25th on BBC America.
We’re freaking out everyone — we need Clara on Doctor Who!
After rumors swirled around the world wide web earlier this summer about Jenna Coleman leaving the popular BBC show, we’re still not sure if she’ll be returning next season.
“Yes, he’s confirmed,” show runner Steven Moffat shared with press at a London press event for the Season 8 DVD release about Peter Capaldi‘s return. But, he didn’t mention anything about Jenna.
“There’s lots of rumors,” Jenna recently said. “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. If you know I’m in the next series — or if you know I’m off — you’ll know how the story ends.”
DO YOU THINK Clara will be back?
