It’s been officially confirmed that Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald, will leave Doctor Who during the new series which starts tomorrow, Saturday 19th September.

However, it’s not been revealed exactly when Clara leaves and the question many are already asking is how will she part company with the Doctor?

Jenna Coleman made her Doctor Who debut on 1st September, 2012 as Oswin Oswald in Asylum of the Daleks. She returned on Christmas Day of that year, playing Clara and remained with the Eleventh Doctor from the following episode, The Bells of Saint John, onwards. She stayed on board the TARDIS for all of Peter Capaldi’s episodes to date and after filming for the last series finished, Peter commented, "Jenna has been absolutely brilliant. I think she’s wonderful in the show, and she’s my favourite companion."

But Series 9 sees the Impossible Girl’s departure although the how, why and when are all questions we’ll have to watch the new adventures to find out…

Casting on the next companion is due to begin shortly. Coleman's final series as Clara begins tomorrow at 7:40pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.

The BBC have released the prequel to the opening episode of Series 9 of Doctor Who, titled The Doctor's Meditation, you can watch it above. The first episode of Series 9 - The Magician's Apprentice - will broadcast tomorrow at 7:40pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
