A week before Series 8 of Doctor Who is set to debut, it's being said that the new companion, Jenna Coleman, has quit the show and will be leaving by Christmas.
The UK gossip site The Mirror is reporting that Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald, will be exiting the series after 18 months in what may be a mutual decision.
According to the site's "source," it's stated a new companion may be coming on board to keep the series "moving and fast-paced."
It's also said a plan is already in the works as Jenna's departure has been discussed, and that Coleman exiting with the Doctor Who Christmas Story will be the right time as it works out with the story.
Jenna Coleman is currently taking part in the Doctor Who worldwide tour with Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat.
