    Granted it's only been three episodes she's been in, but heres my theory on Clara:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    The Great Intelligence somehow 'created' her throughout time after the Victorian episode where it first met the Doctor in order for her to become his companion to gather information on him after he erased himself from history. They'll get all the info about him in order to find his weakness and try to either kill him or somehow absorb him into the Intelligence.

    That scene at the end with Celia Imrie on the floor, having been reduced to a child asking for her parents was probably the most chilling part of the episode for me.
    I totally agree. That bit was brilliant. Does it mean that this 'client' approached her at that age? I reckon we're going to see more of this client.

    More interested in the dialogue during that though..

    Clara - What chapter are you on?
    Kid - 10
    Clara - 11 is the best. You'll cry your eyes out.

    Foreshadowing? I worry for 11 now.

    I think the 11 bit refers to the 11th Doctor and the 1Oth....
    and the cover looks like
    The Doctor (Black Haired)
    Rory (Blonde)
    and Amy (The girl)

    I thought it was a good episode, especially after the Christmas special, which was pretty much just advertising the BBC's support for homosexuality then the rest trying to appeal to ten year-olds.

    Was a bit funny that one of the masterminds of this organisation which could hack into peoples' brains turned out to be a plumber.

    I felt it was a lot of recycled ideas.

    - The Great Intelligence in this episode reminded a lot of the Jagrafess from Series 1 in Satellite Five with the whole controlling and caring thing.
    - The 'go and away and come back for tea' reminded me of when he convinced Rose to go with him in series 1. Ok, so he might repeat himself a lot, but it seems a very similar pattern, young girl goes(or assuming goes) because she can return without any time having passed.

    Wasn't a fan of the new theme or introduction sequence either. Just preferred the old ones, they fitted the show better I feel.
    Also, next episode from the 'next time' seemed to remind me of The Fires of Pompeii. Will reserve judgement until I see it though.

    I still think UNIT deserves a series of it's own, starring Martha
    Could be good, aye.

    Watching old episodes from Series 2 and realising that although the new series is good, it doesn't quite have the same impact as the 10th Doctor series did... I hate to admit it because I love the show more than anything.
    However, it should get increasingly better as it builds up to the 50th anniversary. I'm always an optimist

    I really enjoyed it, guessing the story arc for this series is "who is clara" and "what is the great intelligence" (after all that was the christmas episode as well)
