    @MikeofMcr:  I argue below that the Doctor has to recognize Clara, at least for a moment, from Rigsy’s artwork on the TARDIS, so that subconsciously he will no longer have a mystery gnawing at him, because the show itself asserts the Doctor cannot resist a mystery.

    I contend Hell Bent and in fact the entire season after the first two Davros /…[Read more]

    hey @Timeloop – hmmm… nice hook for some bonkerising!

    On first hearing it I was (shamefully) thinking it was simply a kinda mirroring in the script:

    @MikeofMcr re: 2)

    I really hope you are wrong, according to me there is nothing worse than facial hair… Now I’m even more excited to find out what he looks like 😛
