    I would have thought that Jenna would have left at the end of the series, but I could be wrong. I think that Jenna has been one of the best companions yet, and has one of the best companion back stories we’ve ever seen. Bye Jenna!!

      She will always be missed. Will be hard to get used to anyone following her.

    I personally hope we don’t get a companion next year. Or at least something like the Specials where we have the companion filler role.

    I really wish i could make it to wherever they will audition for the next companion. I am an unknown actor and it would be an absolute dream come true.

    I have had a lot of training in the performing arts and my most recent job was playing the lead character in a play called The Island based on the novel The Lord of the Flies.

    Whoever gets the part is a really lucky individual and i wish them the best time.

    Splendid actress, wonderful companion – but the show depends on change. Most long-running companions (Jamie, Tegan, Amy) have benefited from other companion characters coming and going (Less so in Amy’s case but Rory was on-off and River occasionally turned up too) and unfortunately the time comes when we have to say goodbye to our much-loved characters.

    Not wanting to be negative but finally! It will be sad to see her go though!

    Personally I liked her and I’m sad to see her go. If she is to be killed off then in guessing she’s most likely going to be with Danny. I know there are people that hate but everyone is entitled to their opinion. For the next companion I’d like if the Doctor had more than two companions, like Nyssa, Teagan (or is it Teegan? I forgot), and Adric.

      My bad about all the spelling and grammar errors.

      I’d like more than one companion too, I’d also like to see romana back in someway, shape or form, and its tegan 🙂

    • yognot

      September 18th, 2015 - 6:41pm

      Speaking of Romana, I thought I saw a Tharill in the series 9 trailer. I could be wrong but please don’t say anything, I want to be surprised. Also am I the only one who was kinda bummed that the Doctor and Rory didn’t have an entire adventure in their own and Any was only mentioned? Is just like to see what they’d do.

      Oh and thanks for the spelling of Tegan’s name. Sorry!

    Not really a surprise to me but she was a wonderful companion and will always be one of favourites 🙂

      Yes, Clara has been a brilliant companion!

    How would she leave I hope not killing her off. I hope she be with her family

      Nah…have her killed off, saving the Doctor or something. They have done the other stuff too many times. Rose, Martha and Donna are all with their families…even Amy ended up with Rory….lets have a Adric moment 🙂

      I wonder who the next companion will be? Maybe the Doctor will travel solo for a while or maybe River Song will be his companion for a while =)

    • Cousins2019

      September 18th, 2015 - 11:53am

      Noooo i don’t want River to be the companion the hole time but if she poped in now and again that would be fine i want a male companion!

      Missy. My theory is Clara goes sooner than we think…maybe 2nd or 3rd episode (hence why BBC have confirmed now before it is leaked) and Missy travels with the Doctor, united by one mission….find Galifrey.

      I agree with you they should kill her off there has been way to many happy endings for his companions let’s have a sad 1 for once.

      Clara is definitely in it as far as episode 10, but after that it’s not as clear. That’s the earliest point she may leave at.

      I hope they kill her off. Like Adric. My preference for the next companion would be a girl and a boy. But they don’t go out so just friends.

    No real surprise. They convinced her to stay one more year to help the 12th Doctor transition after there were concerns series 8 would lose some younger fans….but she is a young actress and probably needs to leave before her career goes down the toilet.

    Personally, I think she was a fantastic companion (again, there are the very vocal haters that post on this site who say otherwise…but as I say, they are a minority and therefore insignificant). Also Jenna Coleman is probably the best actor the show has had in the role of a companion.

    I am now excited to see how she leaves…I hope, for the strength of the show, its not another broken heart, abandoned companion and she goes out with a bang.

    Bye Bye Jenna. I personally thought you were the strongest companion we’ve seen for a while! 🙂

    Wow just wow she’s actually leaving!
