Let’s Talk About Clara Oswin Oswald
Something’s been bugging me for a while about this show. Has anyone else noticed that the Doctor and Clara are touching each other all the time? Seriously, it’s like they have no personal bubbles. They just grab hands on instinct: I was beginning to wonder if the actors were sleeping together or something! But then I realized that there are some paraellels with a past companion, paraellels so freaking close they’re almost copies:
“I was born to save the doctor.”–Clara
“I want you safe. My doctor.”–Rose
“Everything must come to dust. All things. Everything dies.”–Rose
“Everything ends.” –Clara
Now, let’s compare some shots:
Both those were taken from “the first companion adventure in the TARDIS” episode. No way is that an accident–those are iconic.
Here’s a bunch of smaller things linking Rose and Clara:
They both say “ghostbusters!” (only companions to say it).
They are the only two companions to ride on a motorbike behind the Doctor.
The well documented name of Clara’s workplace in “The Snowmen”: The Rose and Crown
So, we know the parallels are so freaking obvious the writers are practically cheating.
Now, let’s bring this information to the BBC trailer for “The Name of the Doctor”
Remember this line? “I am the bad wolf. I create myself.”
So, here’s what’s gonna happen. Clara is going to create herself. She’s going to dive into the time vortex and scatter herself across space and time. She’s going to live again and again, and she’s going to save the Doctor because no one else can.
Clara is the boss. Clara makes the decisions about when to go with the Doctor, who to bring with, and where the limits of their relationship go. As she says in the prequel, “The trick is: Don’t fall in love.”
But she really, really obviously has. Big time. Just like Rose did. Rose decided that saving the Doctor was worth her life.
But it’s not going to cost Clara her life. In fact, she’s going to get so much living crammed in, she won’t know what to do with it.
I just really hope we don’t have to deal with constant Clara-memory-erase, because that would get boring fast, I’m just saying.
Respectfully disagree? Think I”m just wrong? Argue with me! I can take it!
