True, she hasn’t really been filming the new season of DOCTOR WHO for very long, but Jenna Coleman is not letting anything slip about the nature of Clara’s relationship with the new incarnation of the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. However, her reticence on that topic led her to confirm just the tiniest morsel about the story in the premiere episode:
“We pretty much pick up where we left off at Christmas and we carry on the story straight away after the regeneration so we’re dealing with that for the first episode.”
So, as suspected, the season eight premiere will pick up exactly where the Christmas special, “The Time of the Doctor,” left off: With Clara confronting the new Doctor in a crashing TARDIS. And somehow that TARDIS makes landfall in Victorian England.
But why not let Jenna tell it?
