    On another note, great first episode and

    I think that the Great Intelligence has engineered Clara so that He can get his hands on the Doctor's mind/virtually immortal body and to do this he knew he had to create the perfect companion to lure him to his doom and he created several models and placed them in several periods-all of these models except the current one being successful.In the finale he will probably take control over Clara and try to get the Doctor's mind/body.
    You stole my theory!

    If it is the great intelligence (which I had to do my research on), it indicates that it viewed The Doctor as insignificant and thus would it really bother with him?


    Great theory though. =)

    I agree.... And not because of the unrequited love thing either. I liked her character. I don't think she was/is a bad actress - I'm not saying she's a brilliant one but I don't recall ever watching a scene and cringing at the acting. So as far as her acting goes, I was happy!

    Oh good! Someone else who actually does like her. I don't know, it seems to me most people really dislike her and I don't see why she's any less good than the others.
    Is it because she came after Rose so people automatically took a dislike to her because she wasn't the same? (And yet, most whovians castigate you if you say you don't like Matt Smith that much because he's just not David Tennant)
    In all honesty, I don't think there's ever been a bad companion

    his name?
    I don't think so…. that will be the end of doctor who and they won't cancel it now - not when it's more popular than it's ever been

    No it wouldn't - the prophecy is the fall of the 11th will be when he answers the first question (Doctor Who?). It wouldn't be the end of the show, it'd be the end of matt smiths spell as the doctor

    I only just got back into watching Dr who because I stopped watching when Russle T Davis left the show back in 2010. I loved Saturday's episode and I am wondering do I need to catch up to know what is going on with his new companion?

    All you need to watch in regards to Clara is Asylum of the Daleks (Series 7 Episode 1) and The Snowmen (2012 Christmas Special)

    There are only 2 episodes she has been in I would recommend watching to see her past and future self.

    The Asylum of the Daleks
    The last Christmas special.

    Those are the only episodes she has been in.

    We probably shouldn't say "self" given that it's not the same entity, just a genetic reincarnation (unless she;s a clone).

    Here's a wild theory.. What if somehow there's a bit of Timelord DNA going.

    Ahh, but I would prefer to try watch other episodes as it will explains why is the Doctor is the Doctor we see today - the development of his character through the episodes...

    I agree. I am guilty of saying at the beginning of each new companionship/doctor something along the lines of "well, (s)he will never be as good as the previous one" and then a few weeks later really liking them. The companions were all very different and of course people relate to certain ones more than others, but at the end of the day, I think they were all damned good. I actually prefer Martha and Donna over Rose, who drove me slightly nuts!

    Ah yes but if you can admit to that fault then it's not so bad!
    I'm not sure about Rose, to be honest. Sometimes she's good, especially at the end of S1/start of S2, but then it kind of tailed off, and when she came because for the special at the end of S4 I thought it was awful. I don't know how she'll do in the 50th anniversary. Donna annoyed me at first, but then looking back I think she was a really good companion, and a good sass-match for ten.

    I hated rose, liked Martha and loved Donna. Didn't like pond but liked her storyline and loved Rory. River is good and I think Clara may be the best yet

    It's alright. Just make sure you don't use a webcam and keep an EMP burst handy at all times.

    Oh, and know a lot about computers and twitter.
