Blindspot Spoilers from EW’s Spoiler Room


Now that Roman knows the truth about Jane, should we be worried he’s not long for this world on Blindspot? — Jesse 

I had that same fear, and so did Jaimie Alexander, which is why she went to EP Martin Gero to find out if Luke Mitchell will be sticking around. “I’ve asked,” Alexander tells me. “He said Roman will be around, but he just may not be what he seems. I was like, ‘Cool, as long as he’s here for a while.’ He’s like, ‘He’s here for a while.’ ‘Good. You’re taking everybody I like!‘”

The CW sets are made as a match makers for actors, so many IRL couples comes out from those sets.

The Ark in Space  -  Homo sapiens. What an inventive, invincible species. It’s only a few million years since they crawled up out of the mud and learned to walk. Puny, defenceless bipeds. They survived flood, famine and plague. They’ve survived cosmic wars and holocausts, and now here they are out amongst the stars, waiting to begin a new life, ready to outsit eternity. They’re indomitable. Indomitable!

Clara: The Golden Companion

One piece of criticism I often see levelled at Clara Oswald is that she was too powerful, too influential, too much a “spotlight-stealing squad” (to use a term from TVtropes.org which has a small write-up devoted to this). And I’ve seen some people outright ask why Clara got all the attention, while Amy, Rose, River, Martha, Donna, etc. didn’t.

Well, first off, that’s nonsense. As Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat have continually said since 2005, the companion is the co-lead in the modern era of Who, and the show is usually told from the point of view of the companion. Not too far removed from An Unearthly Child back in 1963 which was almost totally from the perspective of Barbara and Ian. You want a case of a show being taken back to its roots, you can’t go further back than Episode One. And during their time, all the modern companions have been in the spotlight. We’re going to see it happen again in a few weeks with Bill. Companions in Doctor Who are by their nature “spotlight-stealing squads”, at least the ongoing ones. The only way around that would be a season of nothing but “Heaven Sents” (which is not necessarily the paradise one would imagine) or the Doctor having a different companion every story which is what they’ve been trying to do with Twelve in the comics after dropping Clara, with very mixed results. And I personally find the novels in which the Doctor (any Doctor) has an adventure without a regular, established companion less appealing than those that do.

But there is another reason that I consistently see missed as to why Clara Oswald, specifically, was as influential as she was. 

Clara Oswald was the Golden Companion. That is, she was the companion created to accompany the Doctor for the golden anniversary of Doctor Who. 50 years of Romanas, Sarah Janes, Adrics, Leelas, Ians, Tegans, Roses, Marthas, Donnas, Amys … all those who came before, were in some measure distilled into a companion that represented a half century of the “best of the best” who travelled with the Doctor.

In “The Name of the Doctor” we see Clara echoed throughout the Doctor’s entire existence. In “The Day of the Doctor”, after The Moment fails to convince the Doctor not to push the button, Clara makes the Doctor choose an alternative. In “The Time of the Doctor”, Clara convinces the Time Lords to give the Doctor more regenerations (so that means every Doctor from Capaldi on out will exist because of Clara). In “Listen”, she gives the Doctor his inspiration as a young child. Ultimately, she leaves the series in “Hell Bent” as “a” Doctor in all but name. Which is perfectly fitting and a culmination of an amazing character arc that I know will be reevaluated positively by many in the years to come.

Is that a lot for a single companion to accomplish? Maybe. But then how many 50th anniversary companions are we likely to ever see?
