The title of Doctor Who’s ninth series opener has been revealed as “The Magician’s Apprentice.”
It is rumored that the upcoming Last Christmas would see the departure of actress Jenna Coleman who has been on screen as Clara Oswald since 2012’s Asylum of the Daleks. However, it has more recently been rumored that she has had a change of heart.
Given that Clara has had much more to do in the 8th series and excellent chemistry with Peter Capaldi, I can see that she may be more invested in another few adventures.
Yet the title “Magician’s Apprentice” would imply a new companion. It’s a puzzler, innit?
