While it was rumored a few weeks ago, the BBC confirmed today that Jenna Coleman will continue playing the part of Doctor Who’s assistant Clara Oswald for another series of the show. She has starred alongside two Doctors – first Matt Smith and now Peter Capaldi.
“It’s wonderful,” Coleman said. “I get a whole other series of stories with the Doctor and I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved.”
She added: “There is so much more to do. I think they’ve finally just reached a point where they really understand each other.
“The arrival of the 12th Doctor has just kind of dropped this whole bombshell and allowed the dynamic to totally change, so I think just when Clara was feeling more comfortable in the relationship, it has suddenly thrown something new up.”
Capaldi said: “I’m thrilled. Jenna has just been fantastic and such a pleasure to work with.”
