character: twelfth doctor

DOCTOR: Is there a Mister Clara?
CLARA: No. But there were plenty of proposals.
DOCTOR: They all turned you down though?
CLARA: I turned them down.
DOCTOR: No one ever matched up to Danny, eh?
CLARA: There was one other man, but that would never have worked out.
DOCTOR: Why not?
CLARA: He was impossible.

from “Last Christmas” (Doctor Who, Series 8)

It baffles me how so many people can watch this episode, listen to Clara say that she would have MARRIED only one other man (her “impossible” Doctor), and yet still claim that the two had merely a “father/daughter” relationship or were “just friends”.

I mean…come on…Twelve asks her to run away with him, she takes his hand, and they basically elope. Oh, well, I guess there are none so blind as those who will not see.

If it’s time to go, remember what you’re leaving. Remember the best. My friends have always been the best of me.
