I like to connection made to "Hide" in this episode. In "Hide" we see the life cycle of Earth from birth to death and how the Doctor just shrugs that off. And in "The Name of the Doctor" we see the Doctor's own life cycle from the beginning when he steals the Tardis up to his death, and just how much that irks him.
It's an interesting comparison and contradiction between the two. The Doctor has a God-complex but fears his own (eventual) mortality. There also seems to be a bit of narcissism in him, fearing the end of his own life cycle yet showing Clara hers and her planet's without a second hesitation.
