Just watched Clara's first scene (spoilers)
 
Least I think it was. On the graham norton show.



Ran for almost a minute. Was quite funny.

^What, does he eat it himself?

It was a touch thing. He forgot to use gloves.

He also kept getting Clara's gender wrong.

Stupid aliens.

Oh that's truly funny. I am really looking forward to this episode!

And he's a nurse. :lol:

Well, maybe Sontarans have no gender since they're clones.

Despite being clones, Sontarans seem to self-identify as male and have a long history of showing contempt toward females of other species. Presumably they must've originally reproduced normally before turning themselves into a clone race (and there's a comic-book story that supports that), and the creators of the clones must've considered females unworthy and created an all-male clone race that inherited that misogyny.

This kind of ties into A Good Man Goes to War, when Strax said to that female soldier "Come on, boy." Vastra then commented to Jenny, "she's definitely a girl."

Why don't women like to be called men?

It's like an instant promotion.

The scene is now up on Blogtor Who.

I found the Graham Norton portion even more entertaining than the clip from the episode. Matt Smith is hilarious, but Billy Connolly is a riot and Dustin Hoffman is always a treat. I would love to see either of them on the show even if they aren't all that familiar with it. :lol:

Or just that, when the war began and they moved over to cloning as a form of total mobilisation (that's how their creator Robert Holmes always put it, saying that the Sontarans had a marvellous culture in terms of literature, song, the lot, but they'd just put luxuries like that on hold for the duration of the war) - they had a culture where women didn't fight on the frontline, if at all. The Sontaran generals may even have felt that it was a kindness, saving the fairer sex from having to endure all the unpleasantness of the next few years (/centuries/millennia, as it turned out).

I just wish they'd stop running Strax's comical moments, it's killing half the fun these character ought to bring to the show. He looks to be a lot of fun in this, so leave something for Christmas. Spoilers folks...

My goodness, using brain worms on people. The Doc seems to be reverting to his Bill Hartnell self.

And today's lesson from Moffat-World... (Mental) Rape is funny.
