    Hopefully, and maybe it will have him with how Moffat is about fan service. Any case, that would be brilliant

    Jenny would be brilliant for number 12,the fact that she’s a solider or at least was born one to fight a war,this would test 12s opinion on soldiers plus father and daughter could hunt for Gallifrey and then There’s the fact she was referenced in death in heaven

    It definitely sounds interesting. Maybe establish some connections with 1989’s Battlefield?

    Nothing has been confirmed, and id prefer her to leave now rather than at mid point.

    Maybe this is where we learn how the Doctor inherits the name of Merlin. The 7th doctor was called that in the Battlefield story.
