Osgood. She could bring her inhaler with her.

Is Clara Oswald leaving then? Oooooh it's not going to be the bow tie wearer then.

TheFirstOfHerName Sat 08-Nov-14 20:26:59

Oh well, maybe not.
Although in Doctor Who, dead doesn't always mean you've been written out.

Love Osgood, but would love to see Zawe Ashton kick some alien butt. Her character did ask to join the Doctor, remember?

Zawe Ashton is my girl-crush.

Also think that Zawe would inject a nice dollop of proper modern intelligent feminism and use it as a good launch pad/funding source for her own going to be amazing international career.

I thought it was going to be the scientist fan girl me and the dds were saying that then said OH never mind grin but dead isn't always dead I agree. I think if it isn't her then it will be a completely new face maybe a man

Has Clara definitely left Dr Who then?

Mrsjayy Sun 09-Nov-14 12:38:42

She leaves the Christmas episode

LoveWillTearUsApart Sun 09-Nov-14 12:40:20

I think a very strong case could be made for Kit Harrington as a companion grin

firesidechat Sun 09-Nov-14 12:48:28

I hope they don't leave her all sad and watery eyed. I suppose there's no way to bring back Danny?

Mrsjayy Sun 09-Nov-14 12:52:27

Think danny is dust unless the bracelet gets fixed or she goes to badwolf bay with rose and he is cloned or something

SeaUnicorns Sun 09-Nov-14 12:54:09

Has there been any official conformation of Clara leaving? I mean from Stephen moffett, Peter Capaldi Or Jenna herself? Because all the interviews and statements I've seen are things like, "my future well I'm not telling you" or Peter saying " I don't even know if she lasts the series" what Peter after you've just filmed an entire series with her. How amazing of course you know, and oh look there was Clara last night, in the tardis!
She's also left at least twice this series, and we know last nights good bye meant very little as she's in the cast list for the Christmas episode.

That said, there's been a element of the doctor thinking he's going to be alone soon all series, asking Perkins to stay, his comment to Osgood last night, "all of time and space ... Something to add to the bucket list" but then all of that was because Clara had Danny and the doctor knew Danny would finally win the battle for Clara's attentions. Now Danny is definitely dead!

Oh could Kit bring his Amazing arms?
Actually, think it's time for a bloke. Sorry, Zawe was good, but time to step away from the kiddie demographic.
If not, the Brig's daughter. She was hardcore.

Mrsjayy Sun 09-Nov-14 13:11:13

Just Google d and its all apparently and believed to be runours of, so maybe she isn't leaving at all

trikken Sun 09-Nov-14 13:25:06

I'm actually starting to like Clara. Hope she actually stays

TheFirstOfHerName Sun 09-Nov-14 13:31:59

Another vote here for Kit. He would have a lot to learn as he knows nothing.

SeaUnicorns Sun 09-Nov-14 13:35:24

That's what I thought mrsjayy i hadn't seen anything from the bbc, or the people that actually work on the show.

All the press stories seem very flimsy, there just seemed to be some presumption that Jenna was leaving, presumably because David and Catherine Tate left at the same time. But it the original series companions did used to over lap.

Also I'm very weary of press stories about who's leavung and who's arriving, as when Tennett had that failed regeneration in to the hand my friend an I were told " don't be stupid everybody knows Tennett's leaving and regenrating in to Ewan mcGregor". Funnily David did another 2 series and Matt smith didn't realky look any thing like Ewan McGregor!

Having watched the Q&A from Leicester Square on the first episode, I'd be surprised if either Jenna or Peter were in any hurry to go any where.

Mrsjayy Sun 09-Nov-14 13:42:41

Oh good god id love David Tennant to regenirate into Ewan Mcgregor grin I think a bit of rumour and speculation is fun keeps us wondering and guessing

SeaUnicorns Sun 09-Nov-14 13:55:10

Oh it does mrsjayy and that's all my friend an I were doing at the time, as there was speculation wether David would leave as Billie had just left. It was the everything the press says must be true and the are you really that stupid tone.

I just wanted to clarify there was any basis for stories of Jenna leaving as there appeared to be even less actual firm proof, than there was then.

If it is just fans speculating then yes it's all fun and part of the intrigue of the show.

LoveWillTearUsApart Sun 09-Nov-14 13:59:27

Wish I could 'like' your last post TheFirstOfHerName grin

In all seriousness though, I would quite like to see a male companion again, one who isn't tied to a female companion, iyswim (like Rory, who I loved, but who wouldn't have existed without Amy).

I'm tired of young, beautiful women grin

BeyondPreparedForHell Sun 09-Nov-14 18:37:46

Vote for kit from me!

Mrsjayy Sun 09-Nov-14 18:44:07

I was watching old ones with Micky I loved him I know he wasn't official ly a companion but he added something to it
