Is it Ta Ra TARDIS for Jenna?

Is she leaving or is she staying on board the TARDIS? Such is the rumour surrounding Jenna Coleman since before series 34 of Doctor Who was even halfway through its run. Peter Capaldi cold not confirm one way or another when he appeared as a guest on BBC ONE magazine programme The One Show. 

During the last 24 hours, rumour has it that Jenna will continue to play Clara Oswald beyond Christmas and stay on for at least another half series. This will make her one of the longest-running companions on Doctor Who alongside Elisabeth Sladen's Sarah-Jane Smith and Karen Gillan's Amelia (Amy) Pond.

Steven Moffat is said to be delighted that Jenna has decided to stay on for the first half of series 35, even though it means rewriting scripts for her.

An insider said:"When it came to Clara, they had to tear them up and start again"

"In the original script, Clara becomes an old woman who passes away with the Doctor by her side. Now, she will be seen returning to the TARDIS with her hand in hand with the Doctor"

Jenna and Peter have had one series together, and it appears that Jenna has developed a bond with new Doctor, Peter, that she wants to stay a little longer.

This year's festive special is entitled Last Christmas. The Doctor and Clara will find themselves unable to tell the difference between a fantasy world and reality, and will call on Santa (Nick Frost) for help.

A BBC spokesperson has said: "The Doctor and Clara face their last Christmas trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures. Who are you going to call?  Santa Claus!"
