Doctor Who Companion May Return to Say Goodbye

Good Day to all the Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!

 

{Possible Spoiler} Doctor Who Series 10 had it’s finale on Saturday July 1, 2017. In the closing of the episode we were given a setup for this years Christmas Special. We already know that the special will have the 1st and 12th Doctors together in it. New rumors are another face from the past will be returning in the episode.

Peter Capaldi farewell

Earlier this year Capaldi announced that this would be his final season as The Doctor. Along with Capaldi, Peter Moffat the current show creator will also be leaving. Throughout the season there were false scares of the 12th’s regeneration. I say false because anybody that saw the news was well aware Capaldi would be there through the Christmas Special. With the special being the farewell episode for Capaldi many times important characters to that specific doctor come back and say goodbye. Both Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) and Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) returned for farwells to their Doctors, 10th (David Tennant) and 11th (Matt Smith).

With the previous companions giving farewells to their Doctors, at this point it only makes sense the companion that spent the most time with the 12th (Peter Capaldi) returns in some fashion. Rumors have surfaced Jenna Coleman, who played Clara Oswald, will be returning in some fashion for the Christmas Special. While Clara was introduced with the 11th Doctor she spent most of her time with the 12th. In fact, she was with Capaldi’s Doctor for 2 of his 3 series.

The Mirror website revealed the news from one of their sources. In the article they stated their source had this to say,

“Jenna Coleman has agreed to film something new as Clara. It’s become a tradition now for the companions to reappear as the Doctor regenerates and Jenna isn’t letting the side down.”

Now if you think this is the only send off the article further stated,

“Bill and Nardole are due to get brief appearances but they could be clips or flashbacks from earlier episodes.”

Not as big as filming new scenes but it does give a nice little goodbye to our most recent doctor.

Clara Oswald’s Goodbye

While not knowing what the scene would be, or how much screen time Clara will have to be (possibly) fully remembered. The Doctor had to wipe his memories of her after their connection with each other was becoming too dangerous. This being the case he may just come across prior to their meeting as the 11th version not knowing who each other are. The other option is that he does remember her, resulting in a fond farewell. Inverse.com reported that Eddie’s Diner in Cardiff had been booked for filming in July. What is the importance of this? Eddie’s is the location for filming of Clara’s Tardis. This leads me to believe that the Doctor will remember, and have that proper goodbye.

Having seen the love from fans for the team of the 12th Doctor and Clara recently on Reddit. Where I posed the question both on the Doctor Who and Gallifrey subreddits. Who is the Best Doctor/Companion Team? I’m sure fans will be very pleased with this development. 12th_Doctor_Clara
