Clara?
Murray Gold
Doctor Who - Series 7 (Original Television Soundtrack)
The Bells of Saint John (2013)

Personally, this is one of my favourite companion themes since Series 1 because of the way it reflects Clara’s character so well. The beautiful ascending motive of Clara’s theme reflects her curiosity, kindness, and her enthusiasm for all things new (with a little bit of mystery thrown in too.) I can’t wait to see how Murray adapts this theme in the coming series.

what went wrong with doctor who series seven? (part one)

(part two)  (part three)

The latest Christmas special, the Time of the Doctor proves it. There’s no way to sugarcoat it, series seven was probably the creakiest run of Doctor Who episodes since the show hit its nadir in the 1980s. It hasn’t just been noted by tumblr fans or reviewers for the sci-fi section of websites; casual fans when asked just didn’t warm to Clara - “she’s cute but doesn’t do anything,” “she’s just there to be pretty for the doctor” and “she’s the impossible girl but the doctor does everything.” These are genuine complaints from fans who aren’t on tumblr; some watch the show religiously whilst others are more casual viewers. So what went wrong with series seven? Was it the split in episodes? Was it the departure of Gillan and Darvill, both of whom had magnificent chemistry with Matt Smith? Is it the (apparently) gargantuan boner Steven Moffat has for convulsion, paradoxes and overcomplicated plot threads?

Let’s have a look shall we, and ask - what went wrong with doctor who series seven? And then, how do we fix it?

am I the only who thinks the Doctor’s new screwdriver looks vaguely similar to River Song’s screwdriver from Silence in the Library… because then… that means…. ;_;
