    Even though I am more than happy with the last two companions due to the extreme eye candy, the series could probably do with a male one as a full time companion and absolutely zero women taking one of the two lead roles. Obviously this won't happen as the BBC would be accused of being polictically incorrect, sexist and/or the embodiment of evil but the 'bromance' genre is pretty huge right now and it could really switch up the dynamic.
    To be honest going to a Doctor with a Jamie like companion would be a huge breath of fresh air for the series.

    Would it be considered sexist? No if anything it will decrease the sexist content as the writers are failing to write most female companions (with the exception of Donna) as anything more three dimensional than 'she falls in love with the doctor'....

    I think the concept was great but it wasn't put to it's full use.

    The episode itself was alright, nothing special maybe introducing Clara three times was too much?

    The leaf will be important somehow.

    Overall glad it has started again, hoping the other episodes pick up the pace.

    anyone else notice the only number missing in her book of places to visit was 23, 10-22 were there and crossed off and 24 uncrossed off, but no 23...(by her I mean Clara btw)
    Spoiler:

    16 was also missing.


    (Original post by Scienceisgood)
    Yeah, I noticed that too.
    Thing is with The Doctor's assistants, they ALWAYS seem to miss something important.

    Ok, so, what we know so far;

    Clara is 24
    She knew nothing about computers until the last episode
    She has died twice and has lived through 3 lives
    She is impossible
    She likes coffee
    On both occasions she has met the Doctor, she has died
    She likes Souflets (however you spell it)
    She is bisexual (or at least bi-curious going by her future self)

    Can't think of anything else (what can we make from this)?
    Technically she's now died 4 times in 3 episodes - she died twice in yesterday's! When she was zapped by the spoonhead each time her body died, though her soul didn't. I think 4 times in 3 episodes in approaching Rory territory

    Ah I really like Clara, I think she will be a more interesting companion than Amy, to be honest.

    AND YES, Tennant will be in the 50th
    Spoiler:

    but will He play the human 10th doctor or the timelord 10th dioctor?


    On another note, great first episode and
    Spoiler:

    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.

    Ecclestone and Rose without a doubt! Closely followed by Smith and Clara. She's already becoming an excellent companion.

    Smith is my favourite doctor with Donna and Amy tied as favourite companions. Like Clara's potential though to be my favourite companion.

    I think Tennant had the best acting and emotional range of the three, closely followed by Ecclestone. Smith is great at quirky, nerdy and fun but he is pretty terrible when it comes to expressing a further range of emotion, sadness and especially anger are far beyond him.

    His acting when trying to be aggressive/angry riding the bike was hilarious! He looked like a quizzical cartoon character.

    Can someone explain the leaf bit to me? He said why was there a leaf and she said something like "No, it was the first page" or something like that - what does that mean? And not in like an overarching plot ~meaning~ sense but just, why would she say it that way?

    I think Ten is often going to seem the most popular because for most people our age, he was our first and main Doctor when we were young, and that impact never goes away. In a few year's time, most teenagers will have grown up knowing Eleven the best and will have the most fond memories of those companions and series.

    Peter Davison and Tegan were my favourite pairing, closely followed by Jon Pertwee and Sarah-Jane Smith (Mainly because prior to SJS, the women were all helpless, she was the first to portray an independent female)

    Oh dear god I hope not - I seriously hoped the end of season 4 would be it for Rose, given she got dragged back into it then. Move on - the ending there was just brilliant, great way to end connections with her for. good.
