The women, much to their dismay, find that their lives are permanently intertwined and, much to their surprise, find they have each other. [Source: The Live Feed]

Doctor Who
Peter Capaldi has dismissed reports that his co-star Jenna Coleman is leaving "Doctor Who." Appearing on The One Show, he told presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones:

"I'm not looking for a new assistant. I don't know where these rumors have started. I've read she may be leaving at Christmas, but I don't even know if she'll get to Christmas, you'll have to watch it and see what happens. She's been called upon to do things that I don't think any other companion has had to do, to show a kind of emotional range and I think she's done it absolutely brilliantly." [Source: Digital Spy]

The CW has released a trailer for the upcoming sixth season of the supernatural drama. Executive producer Julie Plec also revealed that the new season will feature a crossover with "The Originals" in the first half of the season but she did not share any details beyond Alaric not being involved in it.
