Companion Piece
We knew Jenna Coleman was leaving the series. We now know a lot more about how.

I'd cut for spoilers, but who knows what's there to spoil?  They've teased the actress departing and the character dying any number of times, only to have her keep coming back in various guises.  So Who knows what the final two regular episodes, or the Christmas special, will bring?

She really did grow into the role, though, not only saving any number of days but thinking her- their- way out of so many tight spots.  After enduring Danny's death not long after the Doctor's regeneration- into an older, deeper mentor who she really clicked with far more than ever with Eleven- there was really only one more thing for Clara to endure.

Whether she will, for sure, for good?  Only Time will tell.

Time's had a cruel sense of foreshadowing this year- as both last night's episode and the previous Zygon two-parter cut dangerously close to current events involving refugees and invaders and how we treat them. Capaldi's soliloquy from the end of Zygon Inversion was spot-on- and this mashup with the real-life events of Paris makes that even clearer:

And so, farewell, to everyone- and everything- we've lost during these airings.
