To Clara, the companion I liked in 2013. RIP. I will miss you.
To Clara, the companion I loathe in 2014. I wish you'd get upgraded to a Cyberman. And take Mr. Pink with you. Then you can cyber love each other through eternity.
Now, let me preface this by saying that I've only been invested in Doctor Who since the reboot. And for this entire series, this is only the second time where the companion has had to deal with a new Doctor. I saw Rose as being firm in wanting her "old" doctor back. But by the end of the episode, and through the action of the Doctor in saving Earth, she believed in him and wanted to travel with him again. It was her choice.
Fast forward to Clara, who wants a double life - to have her cake and eat it too. YMMV, but I always think that if you want to be a companion, you need to give it 100% and not when it suits you. The relationship between Doctor and companion does not have to be romantic. I loved Donna's relationship with Ten. They had fun, she got to reign him in (in a way) and saved the Universe. I hated that she had to lose her memories.
I understand that Clara wanted the Doctor to rewrite time - I'd probably have asked for it too if it was someone that I loved. But blackmail? This man is the Doctor - he's very, very clever (or was). Did she expect that only keys would open the TARDIS? I agree with the others about wondering where the snapping of the fingers went. I guess Moffett just doesn't care too much about cannon or that we'd call him on it.
Can we just get this season over with, so that we can find a better suited companion for Twelve?
