Doctor Who is a bit of a serial monogamist. He gets seriously into someone for a while, but before long he'll get bored and kick them to the curb. I know it's more complex than this, but to the untrained eye that's what it looks like. I say "untrained" because I have never been able to get my head around Doctor Who. Several people have tried to explain it, but I just get more confused as a result.
Anyway, it looks like the Doctor will not be moving on from his current companion anytime soon. Currently he's shacked up in the TARDIS with Clara Oswin Oswald (played by Jenna-Louise Coleman). She seems to be a bit of a enigma, appearing across several time periods as different incarnations of herself (or so I've been told by a fan of the series, it makes no sense to me). While talking to The Evening Standard, the 26 year-old actress revealed she's not ready to disappear just yet. She explained:
...multiple Clara Oswin Oswalds have been confirmed for the 2013 Christmas special and series eight.
So, we'll definitely be seeing her well into 2014 and beyond. She will get a three month break from filming Doctor Who sometime in 2013. , who plays the eleventh Doctor, will be heading over to the US to appear in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River.
