That was Oswald Danes the paedophile who killed himself taking down that huge hole in China

People who haven't seen it must think I'm on some hallucinogen
Lol ahh right I remember now. Thanks for that

The one thing that confuses me about Oswin (or I'm probably just confusing myself) is this -

Spoiler:
Show
if Oswin is the same person as the new assistant, how does she not recognise the Doctor? After all, when we first saw River (before she died), she recognised the Doctor, so seeing as how Oswin has also met a tragic fate, how did she not recognise the Doctor? Maybe it's the fact that she was in a dream? Or it could even be that she DID know the Doctor and neglected to mention anything? Meh, maybe I'm confusing myself.


Either way, I'm VERY excited for the new assistant to arrive now

Edit: Not sure if spoiler tags are needed X_X

Oh so her name is Clara Oswin?

FFS, I thought it was Oswin something and that for some reason and when she became the new companion, she would call herself Clara for some reason.

Simples. The Dalek conversion ****s with your memories as the Doctor said. Hence why she couldn't remember she was converted, hence why Amy couldn't remember she had already had that conversation with the Doctor 4 times.

Well....
Spoiler:

she deleted the Doctor from the Dalek's memory didn't she?
- so perhaps that has something to do with it? Or perhaps the time-line will simply be re-written so that it doesn't happen?

If she is the new companion (which I'll be honest and say I don't really know because I don't follow spoilers very often), then as others have said, the only way I can really see her becoming the companion is if it is by some kind of time-travel... but doesn't it seem just a bit lazy to just repeat the whole kind of river song style of doing it? Especially since that was only a few series ago...

She deleted him long after she first saw him on the planet.


I'm sticking with what I put in the other post.

It seems like it's the only way but it can't be that straightforward.
Well, other ways:

Identical twin :awesome:

Emergency Temporal Shift and then she designed the technology to change herself back.

Emergency Temporal shift and The Doctor actually travels around with a Dalek, we just see her thoughts and in the ****-pit.

Dalek conversion messes with memory or they may not meet pre-conversion, he could save her somehow...that'd be epic!

Response to a part of your spoiler
Spoiler:

No. Or at least I really really hope not. That is too like River and the whole, 'Oooh I knew really but I just couldn't tell you ' which after several times just gets :unimpressed:

If they were identical twins, wouldn't that be quite similar to Martha Jones and her look-alike from Army of Ghosts?

Oswin acts a bit like the Doctor. Not basing this on any evidence, just throwing it out there. Maybe something to do with...

Spoiler:

Jenny (a.k.a The Doctor's "daughter"). They have to explore that character eventually.

Apparently "Moffat has said that one the reasons Coleman won the role was because she could talk faster than the Doctor" (from http://blogs.independent.co.uk/2012/...leks%E2%80%99/ )

And not necessarily with the spoiler. They could easily just leave it unexplored.

Will the Silence be involved in this series?


Also doubt its going to be as simple as 'Doctor meets Clara before her conversion' - that's not the Moffat way. :p:

Maybe he travels back in time and meets her before she boards the Alaska:beard: through some unintended path.
