Is Jenna-Louise Coleman Leaving Doctor Who?

The internet's buzzing with rumors Jenna-Louise Coleman's leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year. U.K.'s Mirror states Clara Oswald'll be moving on to greener pastures, like many other companions have in the past, but as with many of the rumors…there's no official confirmation by the BBC.

The paper reports, "the conversations about Jenna's exit have started, and a plan is in place which is being ironed out," while maintaining "she will be one of the longest-standing companions ever." Coleman will have appeared in 20 episodes by the end of this season.



However, what's interesting is the timing for gossip and rumor mill.

Peter Capaldi debuts as the twelfth Doctor next Saturday, Aug. 23, and Clara is the returning companion to help transition this edgier Doctor. Coleman recently answered a question about their interactions during the London stop of the on-going press tour.

"She can’t figure him out and she can’t control" his actions. For the character, this a serious moment of frustration since Twelve isn't at all like Eleven, who made her feel "so safe and comfortable."

In the "Deep Breath" promos, she claims to not know this Time Lord version and doesn't know how to handle him.

A strange assertion since in "The Name of the Doctor," the teacher knew all previous incarnations and showed the various moments of help through a montage. Then again, never look for consistency in a Doctor Who season-to-season arc.

One thing is for certain, though. There'll be no romance between Twelve and Clara, a stipulation from Capaldi to take the role.

"It's not what this Doctor's concerned with. It's quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, 'I want no Papa-Nicole moments. I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant."



The Guardian notes that Papa-Nicole was a series of car ads for the 1990s Renault Clio, "which hinted at a romance between an older man and a younger woman, before they were revealed to be father and daughter."

At 56-years-old, Capaldi felt the romance would be inappropriate with Coleman (26). While David Tennant, 35, and Matt Smith, 28, were closer in age to their flirty companions for the most part, there's a distinct difference in the Scottish Doctor’s brand of story.

And since there's no romancing the Doctor, Clara's "charming, lovely" boyfriend Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson) will be along for the ride this season.  In a BBC interview, Coleman opened up about adding a boyfriend and the perils of traveling with a Doctor.

"He's that perfect boyfriend really and is very supportive, but he doesn't know anything about this double life she lives. She tries to hide it from him whilst at the same time falling in love."

Falling in love while traveling with a time machine that sometimes gets times wrong? Oh, that won't be easy at all.



"She becomes very torn between the two. It's almost as if she's having an affair, without having an affair, but the lying becomes more and more." And there's how the romantic plot translates from Doctor romance to almost splitting up partners.

Just retooled a little from the Nine (Christopher Eccleston) and Rose Tyler plot. Hopefully Twelve will be a little more tolerant of boyfriends than Nine, as well. (Poor Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke) couldn't catch a break.)

Will a more somber, "rooted dramatic" tone affect the purported exit? No one knows since the BBC hasn't responded to media requests. But as Zap2it points out, "The Name of the Doctor" helped explain the Clara's origin and why she was important as the "impossible girl."

So, perhaps this a perfect time to bow out of Doctor Who.
