I was reading the Entertainment Weekly recap of The Name of the Doctor earlier today and something really bugged me about it.
But instead of continuing to one-up Moffat’s impossible promises (that time-travel was a storyteller’s master key, allowing the series to come alive with exploration as an expression of not just humanity but humanness), the show dispatched the Ponds and delivered to us an “Impossible Girl,” Clara Oswin, with the impossible ability to come back from the dead, no matter the year, place, or cause of death. Before this week, it was a hook nifty enough to let Clara get away without having a personality. Nothing against Jenna-Louise Coleman, but does Clara want anything? She has preferences but not needs.
There’s kindness in your eyes. And sadness. But a ferocity too.
