Wow. Didn't see that coming.

There was a new program about the companions and Jenna was saying how much she loved the role. Wonder what changed?

The BBC refusing to comment makes it sound like the parting of ways was less than amicable. Not a fan of the changes that Capaldi's bringing?

Tbh, I'm not surprised to see her go. Something about her has just given me the vibe that she's not happy about something since Capaldi has come into the show... I can't pin point what it is though.

oh, I saw the 'quits' in the url and thought it was gonna be Moffat :(

 

edit: It says she's one of the longest standing companions. It really doesn't feel like she is though, does it? I barely remember 3 episodes of hers. It's a bit of a shame, I really wanted to like Clara but they never really gave her a good chance

You're right, I only remember one series with her as companion. I blame Moffat.

I think time wise she's one of the longest companions, even though someone like Rose got 2 whole seasons.

Fuck yes, goodbye Clara you horrible, horrible companion. I hope they cast Helen Mirren as the next companion. Imagine the back and forth she would have with Capaldi, it'd be AMAZING.

oh yes, imagine Capaldi's doctor with an older lady companion. Like Helen Mirren or Maggie Smith. A really stubborn old lady who can smack him on the head when he gets annoying

Calm yer tits, they'll get a relative unknown for the next companion, same as always.

 

I'd like to see Rose Leslie (Ygritte from GOT) myself but I'm pretty sure she's got a new show out. Plus I don't think people would want another Scottish redhead, as much as I'd love that :P

If it were up to you and me the Doctor would never have any companions other than Scottish redheads :lol:

Yeah I was never that big on Clara. See ya Jenna, you were never as big a deal as Moff wanted you to be. The Impossible Girl? More like The Forgettable Girl.

Huh. I didn't think she'd leave that quickly, like realistically she'd only done a little over half a series. It still feels like that anyway. :ermm: They should make her meet one of her other selves before she leaves, could be interesting. 

 

I'd also love another older companion. I miss the Doctor/Donna banter, something like that would be nice.

It's a shame she's leaving, she was always a pleasure to see.







The character was all right too I guess :P

Everyone keeps saying Clara was one of the longest-standing companions but it definitely doesn't feel that way. The Ponds and Rose seem like they were around longer (in Rose's case it felt like for-fucking-ever).

 

Could just be because Moffat made her so completely forgettable and one-dimensional that often it seems like she's not even there :lol:

I never really liked Clara that much to begin with so I am glad that she is leaving.

I'm watching now The Fires of Pompeii in my first time, it's so cool to see David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, Karen Gillan and Catherine Tate in the same episode!

So 8/13 aren't entirely by Moffat. My hopes are raised. On the other hand, they all sound fairly Earth-based, so my hopes are lowered a bit as well.

Sometimes the writing is bloody imaginative, sometimes it's shit. But we all knew that.
