Doctor Who companion Jenna-Louise Coleman has finally addressed rumors that she might be leaving the long-running sci-fi show.

Well, sort of.

In an interview with UK’s Radio Times magazine, the actress did not deny or confirm rumors that she would leave the series, saying an upcoming plotline would answer all questions about her future.

“We’ve sat down with [showrunner] Steven Moffat and we’ve all decided we don’t want anyone to know which way it’s going,” she told the magazine. “Because there’s a surprise we’ve got coming, it’s much better that nobody knows which way it’s going to go — so that’s where we’re trying to keep it at the moment.”

Back in mid-August rumors emerged that Coleman and BBC had reached a mutual decision to plan her exit from the show.

BBC America told Mashable that the network doesn’t comment on speculation. But, frankly, this all sounds bleak to us.

On the show, Coleman’s Clara has not had an easy time dealing with the loss of Matt Smith’s Doctor, but she seems to be making progress in getting to know the latest version (played by Peter Capaldi).

Coleman has held the role since 2012, taking over the iconic part following the exit of Karen Gillan, who played Amy Pond. Gillan left the show and went on to grab a plum part in Guardians of the Galaxy and her own sitcom on ABC.
