[this idea amuses me muchly -- it's like the "Century Babies" in comics, the ones written by warren ellis at least, where a lot of mysteriously powered people turn out to be all born at the exact start of the 20th century. It's finally established that they all have "purposes"



I quite liked Amy and Rory, not least because they knew what impact/toll the Doctor and his mad-man-in-a-box advertures were having on their lives. Also: LOVE WINS! Every single time, Amy and Rory save the world... Love comes into it. They jump off buildings together, fight monsters together... and Amy "doesn't want to be in a universe without Rory".

This is why I like talking to you about Who so much, you come from a completely different angle. (in a good way)

But, yes, Clara, it did seem weird that she just upped into the TARDIS without even telling the folks she was baby-sitting for. I thought it might be a bit of a "slot in" Clara, i.e. *waves hands* I( can't even figure out what I'm thinking on that one. Maybe she is automatically stuck into a reality whenever something goes a little bit wrong... like an unwitting white blood cell.

Maybe the Great Intelligence just screws things up (more than) enough to get multiple Claras turning up. A giant explosion of (more than usually) insane daleks creates a "clever clever girl" who doesn't really know her own biography. Entertainment manager on a space-ship? She might as well be extemporizing it (or, if we follow through, the universe is making it up in a hurry). Might explain why we also got a bad encounter with the Rift In Time. Both are signs of things going Very Wrong. Maybe Claras are not created to survive whatever Universally Fucked Up Situation, so maybe the Doctor has just created his own when Clara did not die.

This all probably makes close to zero sense.

Sorry.

  • The Who thing that has miffed me the most about the last season, is the lack of a "brilliant book" at Christmas. They are wonderful (they might look a bit like an annual but they have real damn content -- and huge fucking hints -- and really flesh things out and are just cool) and if you see one, get it. At least it'd be fun, if it isn't fun, give it to me! :-)
