Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has confirmed that this week’s episode will be the last for companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman.
“It’s a sad one, gripping and very strange,” Capaldi said. “And it’s the end of the line for Clara Oswald played by Jenna Coleman who’s been my companion for the last two years.
“It’s the end of her story. I don’t want to go into the details of it, but it’s sad.”
Coleman quit the series to take the role of Queen Victoria in a new ITV drama. While the BBC had confirmed she was leaving, they remained vague about which episode would be her last. The preview materials for “Face the Raven” have certainly foreshadowed Clara’s departure, but this is the first confirmation fans have received.
