Face the Raven is upon us, the third-to-the-last installment of Series/Season 9 (presuming we don’t count the Christmas offering as a proper episode in the seasonal run).
Several big questions jump out about this one…
…introduced in The Girl Who Died earlier this Series/Season, somehow relate to the departure of Jenna Coleman’s ‘Clara’ from the show? This appears to be portended by spots for this episode, but we’ve been misdirected by Moff & Co before…
4) Will Face the Raven indeed represent Jenna Coleman’s departure from the show? If this is the case, it’s interesting that the script work here is being handled by Sarah Dollard (BEING HUMAN, MERLIN) rather than by Steven Moffat himself. One would THINK that such a consequential, canonical development would be helmed by Moffat himself - which makes me wonder if this we’ll truly witness the Coleman/Clara exit this week.
Below is a gallery of official promo images from Face the Raven, an assemblage which may expand should more pictures become available before transmit. Also check the discussion thread before for embedded material (clips, posters, etc) related not only to this episode, but to the WHOniverse in general.
