The final hour
The final frontier.
Y’know, Clara Oswald’s appeared in nine episodes now, but Rory’s ninth episode was The Impossible Astronaut, and at that point we knew much, much less about him than we know about Clara now. We’d only seen him at work once, we hadn’t even met his dad yet, and he barely passed a reverse Bechdel test: virtually all his conversations were about Amy.
And I love Rory. I love him to pieces. But guess how many people I saw calling him ‘boring’ or ‘bland’ or ‘barely even a character’ back then? If you guessed zero, you’re absolutely right.
Clara Oswald’s normal, everyday life — here meaning her biological family (Mum, Dad, Gran, Linda), her quasi-adopted family (Angie, Artie, and Mr Maitland), or her job as a teacher — has been a part of 70% of her episodes so far. Not always a major part, but there is a continual commitment to showing her roots, that travelling with the Doctor is an addition to her normal life and not the whole of her life.
When people say Clara has no characterisation and her whole existence revolves around the Doctor, I honestly wonder if they’re watching the same show as me.
In which no one knows who River Song is
I’m sorry , pointless gif I know , but I just find it so funny , that literally no one has a clue who River is most of the time , she’s so enigmatic that at some point , not even river song knew who river song was , and at one point even River Song was making River Song theories , Rivaaah via marriagehoney
