the best doctor who character ever


another meme i won’t finish | [1/5] favourite female characters: clara oswald (doctor who)

Nobody’s ever safe. I’ve never asked you for that, ever. These have been the best years of my life, and they are mine. Tomorrow is promised to no one, Doctor, but I insist upon my past. I am entitled to that. It’s mine.

One of the best themes ever in Doctor Who, imo, is the theme of memory. Amy Pond brings the Doctor back with a story from her childhood and measures her reality through remembrance. River Song and the Doctor remember each other in days gone by to strengthen their relationship. Ashildr’s finite capacity for remembering plays a large part in defining her character. But Clara Oswald understands that sometimes remembering means letting go.

She can’t bring the Doctor’s memories back, but she’ll give him one new one, because without memory there are no legends and no songs. Just as her memories of Danny give her one last chance to say goodbye and really mean it in “Last Christmas,” the Doctor’s reconstruction of Clara allows them both closure. He will remember her smiling in the diner, and that’s enough to make him let her go.
