@Baker Street Wow...when you put it like that, it's astonishing to see how much has been accomplished in the past year :P

@NotsoSmartguy  @supermoff @Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig They could probably handle the genre pretty well, now that you mention it. Then again Doctor Who could do anything well, I suppose. but Steampunk/Cyberpunk is differently an interesting direction :)

@NotsoSmartguy  @Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig By which time DWTV would have amassed enough strength from all the tears caused from tough polls, and would have conquered the world. A bright future then :P

But seriously? How can it have been a year? I guess Doctor Who really does screw with one's perception of time, as well as rewriting it, as it often does. But yes, almost one year since one of the most sensational episodes of Doctor Who ever written, a 50th anniversary masterpiece that took the attention of the entire universe. For 75 wonderful minutes, Doctor Who was the biggest thing in the world, and it was utterly incredible. :)

Bringing back Jenny is a good idea, though I'd kind of prefer it if they brought back epic one shot companions like Canton (who was freaking awesome) or Perkins :)

@NotsoSmartguy  @Malohkeh @CaitlinAshford Presumably Time Lord, though we never knew the biology of her parents or grandparents (other than the Doctor) so I'm not sure :s She could be either, Some extended universe stuff has probably addressed it at some point.

Capaldi could play a wonderful father-like Doctor. There are father-figure elements to his relationship with Clara (though it's more a mixture of many different kinds of relationship, like business partners / best friends, etc) but I feel he could be just as brilliant in a more father-figure dominant dynamic.

Great article! I'm gonna be honest, The Doctor's Daughter is one of my least favourite episodes of the show and Jenny failed to make a great impression on me in said episode, but I'm more than willing to give her another chance, especially seeing as all these points are fantastic. 

The fact that she is a soldier would indeed create a fascinatingly complex dynamic between her and Twelve, which will would hopefully soften him up a bit with regard to soldiers (though, after Danny Pink's fate in Death in Heaven, he may already have changed his opinion somewhat). 

Plus, you're right, there would be a wonderful level of poetic beauty with the Doctor searching for Gallifrey with is daughter. That's really a lovely thought. And, as it's been shown that Jenny can regenerate, you can make her a long-standing companion if need be like Romana.

@LGwalchmai95 @supermoff @TheCyberDoctor @The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing  Ooh that works perfectly. I still think there's a significant time jump between Name and Day though, but I think that's perfect for extended universe stuff (to be filled in at some point) :)

@TheCyberDoctor @supermoff @The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing Name of the Doctor took place in April 2013, and Clara became a fully qualified teacher between that date and the time whenever the Day of the Doctor takes place (she may have already been qualified though, to be fair, or very near to qualifying), so it's possible a lot of time has elapsed. In the Forest of the Night took place in 2016 and that was contemporary for Clara, so I reckon Day of the Doctor took place closer to Forest than Name, so maybe 2015 or something. Just speculation of course :s

@The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing @supermoff That's...a good question. Seeing as there was no mention of "happy birthday" from the Doctor to Clara at any point (assuming he'd remember such a thing) I suppose not...:s

@The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing @supermoff @Strontium @DocWhoFan Indeed. Clara was a control freak, but there are many control freaks in the world - why Clara in particular? I thought the whole "I have chosen well" would be much deeper than what we got :s

@Strontium @DocWhoFan Yeah, she gave a reason that the Doctor would "go to hell" for her or something, and that she was perfect for him, but...that was a bit of an underwhelming reason so I hope we get more than that.

@YaelMoise @Romanadvoratrelundar is looking for Gallifrey @supermoff @Planet of the Deaf Oh ok. What I meant was that, despite the fact Martha and Clara were fleshed out pretty similarly as you point out (both having families and friends outlined), there is often a proclivity amongst the fanbase to forget that because of nostalgia or higher preferences, something to that extent.

@ahunter8056 @supermoff That's a good point about viewing figures, but I don't think it matters as much in today's catch-up world. If there is a shock exit, it'll just mean the catch-up viewing figures are bolstered instead. And ultimately, the BBC seem to have adopted a new attitude to secrecy this year, so historical examples are applicable anymore.

@ahunter8056 "I'm sure that if she were to depart at Christmas, there would have been an official announcement by now" Not necessarily. Given the BBC's attitude to secrecy this year, as well as trying to make things as surprising as possible, I would be very surprised if they announced something like that. I'm sure they'd want Clara's exit, whenever it'll happen, to be a surprise. Regardless, I still very much hope she continues into Series 9...

@Mark McCullough A spin off could be brilliant. I'm thinking along the lines of Clara's role in Flatline' as a solo alien investigator :D

Yeah a companion should remain providing a) the story still needs her, or she has more to give b) the actor/actress behind the companion is willing to continue. In Clara's case, condition a is definitely met (she has so much more to give) and condition b is fairly likely too.

That would be a very Moffat thing to do, but I'm not particularly fond on the idea of time being rewritten in this instance, especially because Listen is my favourite episode of all time and I hope none of it is rewritten :/

Ultimately, I think she should return for series 9, but with another companion on the side, with a gradual transition for said companion.

Must say, even though it is borderline torturous, I have to commend the BBC for keeping Clara's future predominantly under wraps. In fact, their whole attitude of secrecy and misleading information has been great this year, and, in this instance, definitely keeps the tension up. Will she stay or will she go...

Well yes, probably millions. Which must have meant a lot of Cyberclaras in Death in Heaven. But we only saw the two, so that's where the concept of the trilogy comes from.
