honestly, at this point, if you don’t like clara you should stop watching doctor who. for the past four episodes season eight had pretty much beaten into everyone’s heads that clara is extremely important, brave, kind, clever, and fantastic. it’s expounded on the fact that twelve needs clara’s help to win the day. and clara’s visited every major point in the doctor’s timeline, or more specifically her echoes have, and saved him, she’s visited him when he was a child and told him exactly what he needed to hear to actually become the doctor, and she made the eleventh, tenth, and war doctors change the course of the universe and save gallifrey.
clara oswald is the real one keeping the universe spinning here.
