Saw this below at the Express. Only went there to see what the papers were saying about the Doc.
Capaldi said: “I’m not looking for a new assistant. I don’t know where these rumours have started. I’ve read she may be leaving at Christmas but I don’t even know if she will get to Christmas. You’ll have to watch and see what happens.”
Coleman said: “The truth is, I do not want to tell you the truth. I quite like these rumours. People don’t have any idea [if I’m staying or going]. I think people can watch the show, not knowing whether I am [going] or not and I think that is exciting.”
