Television: Jenna-Louise Coleman leaving Doctor Who

Guess she'd done her time?

Really, her arc had ended, and I can't say I'll miss her that much. I wasn't a fan. She was meant to be young and spunky, a counterpart to Matt Smith. Next to the forthcoming Peter Capaldi, perhaps it's something of a mismatch.

But even when she was tagging along with #11 . . . Her story was so convoluted, and then they somehow failed to take it quite far enough. Instead of pushing that envelope and having The Doctor really sort of go mental over trying to figure her out, they held back a bit. And meanwhile, there was Clara, hanging around and getting increasingly obnoxious.

Probably just as well she goes.

She's scheduled to exit come Christmas after an 18-month "posting" as Doctor's Companion.
