This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, “Last Christmas,” included a tear-inducing farewell for the Doctor’s companion Clara. Well, until it wasn’t. And now the actress who plays Clara has made it clear she’s here to stay.
Speaking to the BBC, Jenna Coleman confirmed that she will continue to play Clara for another season of Doctor Who.
“I get a whole other series of stories with the Doctor and I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved,” Coleman said. “I think they’ve finally just reached a point where they really understand each other.”
