Coleman on Oswin/Clara Mystery

New companion Jenna-Louise Coleman has claimed that the mystery behind Clara and Oswin will not be touched on in The Snowmen.

In an interview with EW, Coleman was asked if the subject will be addressed at Christmas and she replied: “Uh… mmm… no. We’re going to have what has been referred to as a “soft mystery.” For me, filming, I’ve been totally oblivious to Oswin and the “Asylum of the Daleks.” I really have had to erase it from my memory. Yeah, Christmas is its own episode.”

Coleman was then asked whether the new companion is even human and her response: “That’s why it’s so difficult [to talk about it]. Because of the way it started with Oswin, it’s really difficult to say much: where she’s from, what period she’s from, what planet she’s from, even.”

Speaking more about the Christmas special she said: “I feel like I’ve been in Christmas for about six months. [Laughs]. We’re still finishing up on ADR and things at the moment. There are some absolutely stunning, beautiful, very magical, magical, magical, moments in it that’s Steven written. And it’s very icy and snowy.”

Finally, asked if Clara gets to say the famous ‘It’s bigger on the inside!’ line, she replied:  “You’ll have to wait and see.”
