Imagine the Doctor finding out you’d been getting hassled everyday by a group of guys on your daily walk home. They mostly just cat call you and whistle and stuff, but the Doctor gets adorably pissed. After chasing them off, the Doctor grumbles to himself until you make it back to the TARDIS.
“The little… Daleks!”
“Oh they’re on the same level as Daleks now, are they?”
“Of course! No one gets to mess with you except me.”
Time it was And what a time it was, it was A time of innocence A time of confidences
Long ago it must be I have a photograph Preserve your memories They’re all that’s left you.
Bookends, by Simon and Garfunkel
From The Time of the Doctor to Hell Bent, the Doctor’s memories were fuzzy when initially greeting Clara, and then once more when he encountered her in the diner. This bookends their relationship perfectly.
When the Doctor realises Clara is inside that Dalek casing and he is so angry with Missy he tells her to run and Missy actually does run because she knows she’s awoken a beast but he can’t even take his eyes off Clara. That moment broke me.
Hold up just imagine: Lena as Doctor Who and Kara as the clumsy yet witty companion. They’re traveling in Lena’s tardis to different day and ages fighting daleks but also having the time of their lives.
