David Tennett is the best Doctor. While terribly used Jenna Coleman is the best female companion. She is a brilliant actress (she currently plays Queen Victoria on the BBC show "Victoria" (can be seen on WHRO)). Unusual for a primary companion, Clara had a complex, interesting, and frankly plot improving back story to be dug up. Unfortunately after building up this story over several seasons, a X-Mas special, and 2 different doctors, the show runners just sort of threw it out with the trash and she became another "Dr. save me!!!," companion. Albeit, one who would put him in is place and was not afraid to do her own thing.
