Re: 7x09 Hide - rating and discussion thread

Everyone came into this episode (including Eleven and Clara) expecting a good old-fashioned ghost story - the real story (or rather stories) was 'hiding' behind those assumptions. Those included:

- The real reason behind the 'ghost' sightings
- The professor & the psychic's unrequited romance
- The psychic discovering her own inner strength
- Clara getting an eye-opener on what it truly means to be a time-traveler
- Clara's ongoing feud with Sexy
- The Doctor becomes the scared, danger-prone Companion for once - Clara has to come to his rescue
- The reason the Doctor/Clara came there in the first place

So. Seven little separate intertwining B-stories 'hiding' behind an A-story premise. There's your explanation.
