"When the brief came through [for her audition], I knew it was a 'Doctor Who companion.' But the character description was actually very much like 'Mary Poppins' originally. Clara's very, very bossy and tells the Doctor where to go and what to do, and whacks him with an umbrella and stuff."
"Oh wow. It's so funny because I'm still working at it—I'm still there. For me personally, to be honest, for these last eight months the show has been totally and utterly life consuming. When you're in Doctor Who you're in Doctor Who. There just isn't much time. It's going to be interesting now that we finished the season."
