Last seen flying off across time and space inside a diner with Arya Stark for company, Clara Oswald story came to an end…or did it? Not content with letting things lie, it seems that Jenna Coleman may return for Series 10.
Her potential return was let slip by Peter Capaldi at a Doctor Who panel at Awesome Con in DC this past Sunday featuring both him and Coleman. Discussing Clara’s exit from the show, which involved her wiping his memory of her existence so he could carry on travelling without the grief of losing her, Capaldi teased:
“I’m not sure how successfully Clara was able to wipe his mind. I just… I was about to tell you something I can’t tell you.”
Capaldi then went on to confirmed that he had recently shot something where the Doctor and Clara were still travelling together.
“I just shot something that Clara was still there in.”
Obviously the statement is open to interpretation, he could be referring to a suppressed memory (it’s a very loose definition of being ‘there’), a trip to the past before her departure from the TARDIS; what is interesting is that Doctor Who isn’t currently filming – although we aren’t far away from the start of production. What is in production is Class, so could the TARDIS team of Twelve and Clara make a cameo appearance in the Coal Hill School set spin-off?
So while it looks likely that The Impossible Girl will return, we don’t quite know how she’ll return and in which show.
