The first episode will be called The Magician’s Apprentice
As confirmed at the end of Christmas special Last Christmas.
Jenna Coleman’s Clara is staying for all of series 9
After months of tabloid speculation that Jenna Coleman would be leaving the show in the Christmas special, she instead stayed on board the Tardis for more adventures with the Doctor. Steven Moffat has confirmed that she will be appearing in all of series 9.
Speaking of the decision to stay, Coleman said :“I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved and there’s so much more to do – I think they’ve finally just reached a point where they really understand each other!”
And the Twelfth Doctor will develop further
Peter Capaldi has said: “I think you have to keep moving – if he’s regenerated, he’s learning about himself and how he responds to the universe, so I think he probably will be different again when he comes back [in Season 9] … we’re still pushing to find out who this character is – there are more mysteries about him.”
