Last fall, questions swirled about whether or not Jenna Louise Coleman, who plays the latest companion on BBC’s long-running Doctor Who, was going to remain on board the TARDIS with Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord or branch out and explore other career options. She ultimately signed on for another season of adventures through time and space, but now showrunner Stephen Moffat reveals that she was originally going to leave.
Before last season’s Christmas special, there were reports that Coleman was moving on afterwards. There was, of course, contradictory information that said she was staying, and the actress herself played coy, not saying one way or another. As it turns out, Moffat says she was supposed to leave, but not when people necessarily thought.
