…meh?

Looks like this Christmas, we might see Ms. Oswald depart the Doctor’s side.

One of the things I’ve always said is “there are no bad Doctors or companions, just bad writers.”  I never cared for Clara’s story arc even though Jenna Coleman did a good job with what she was given.  It felt like one big DC Comics-esque retcon into the Doctor’s entire history that was completely unnecessary and came off as uncomfortably forced on the part of Steven Moffat.  I hope the upcoming season with Capaldi gives her some focus and story development before she steps away.

And if you’re listening, BBC…can we get a male companion this time?  I miss the heady days of Five and Turlough!
