Neil Gaiman on re-writing Doctor Who: Clara was originally going to stay as a Victorian governess. Radio Times
"The original companion was going to be very much the Victorian governess we saw at Christmas," Doctor Who writer Neil Gaiman told Radio Times, while discussing the genesis of his most recent story, Cybermen vehicle Nightmare in Silver.
“Doctor Who has its own peculiar way of being written, so I started writing it about 14 months ago. I wrote about the first ten pages and then they said they’d changed the companion from what I was expecting to something else.
"We decided they can do more weird stuff if it’s now the contemporary third incarnation so I had to reshape it so it wasn’t the governess."
