Jenna-Louise Coleman To Star In Christmas Special And Series 8?

Jenna-Louise Coleman’s future on Doctor Who has been something of a mystery, with no-one revealing if Coleman would be in any episodes beyond the 50th Anniversary Special in November. Interestingly, a report by the Evening Standard claims:

“Jenna-Louise’s multiple Clara Oswin Oswalds have been confirmed for the 2013 Christmas special and series eight. She has just found out that this year she will have a three-month break from filming Doctor Who when Matt Smith goes to America to star in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut How to Catch a Monster and was immediately on the phone to her agent, keen to start setting up meetings to find something to fill the slot.”

In the interview, Coleman also recalls her audition for Doctor Who:

“I didn’t really know anything about Doctor Who but Steven really liked that. It meant that when I went into the audition with Matt Smith I could be more spontaneous because I didn’t know him as the Doctor. And the plot seemed to evolve from audition to audition, with more scenes being written, and characters being introduced. There were times when I thought they had no idea what they wanted.”
