After last week's episode of Doctor Who, The Magician's Apprentice, it looked that it might be the end of the road for Clara as she was finished off by the Daleks alongside the antagonistic Missy. As we knew that Jenna Coleman was leaving the show as The Doctor's latest companion could last week's conclusion have seen an untimely end for the perky teacher?
I'm already chomping at the bit to see Missy again thanks to the fantastic performance put in by Michelle Gomez over the course of the last two episodes. Gomez's rather physical performance was brilliant and I especially liked her conducting The Daleks as they barked their familiar catchphrase at her. Gomez was also brilliantly adept at reciting Moffat's dialogue and I particularly felt she attacked the line about every miner needing a canary with perfect aplomb. However I did feel that Gomez's performance exposed Jenna Coleman's shortcomings as she gave a rather one-note turn as the constantly in peril Clara.
