Doctor Who Magazine #482: Details Revealed

WARNING: This post contains spoilers from "Dark Water"/"Death in Heaven" and "Last Christmas." Continue reading at your own risk.

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine will be released tomorrow, featuring an interview with Jenna Coleman and the direction her character will take next season. When asked by DWM whether Clara and the Doctor can ever move past the events of series 8, particularly the death of Danny Pink, Coleman says:
"I think so. But they are a bit addicted to each other, and to the dynamic that they share. It's getting so that one can't go without the other, and I think that's definitely what Clara's realised. In a way that's quite dangerous now, because she realises that there is no going back for her..."
