Jenna Coleman seemingly left Doctor Who for good last year, as Clara Oswald ran off into time and space cheating death with Arya Stark—a high note for an otherwise uneven companion. But in the realm of time-travel, was this really the last we saw of Clara in the series? Maybe not, according to Peter Capaldi.
It’s official: Clara Oswald has left the building, and Clara’s final season of Doctor Who is coming to a close—making her, depending on how you chart it, one of the longest-running companions in history. But even with all that time on the show, it never felt like Doctor Who knew how to solve a problem like Clara.
Many fans expected Doctor Who's current companion Clara Oswald to leave in the most recent Christmas special, Last Christmas, only for her to carry on adventuring with The Doctor into the next Season. But a new interview with Steven Moffat confirms that Clara could have been gone even earlier than that.
