More of the same old unimaginative thinking, that she must have some connection to some Time Lord or other even though her particular kind of death and resurrection is clearly very different from what Time Lords do. She's River! She's Romana! She's an inexplicably incestuous Susan! She's the Master's niece! She's the Rani! She's the Meddling Monk! She's Chancellor Goth back for sexy revenge!

Can't anyone come up with a theory that isn't Gallifrey-related? Something actually creative for a change?
I agree with you're overall ideas here, that those types of ideas are unoriginal. However, I don't think we have enough data at this point to really have an idea of what she is.

Sure, we can come up with creative ideas but would just be wild speculation at this point. There's a million things she could be, but I wouldn't place money on any one of them at this point!

So, I'm just waiting for now. We're not meant to know at this point.

The painting of Clara in the preview also has her last words/catchphrase painted in the corner.

Re: The Impossible Girl: Who IS Clara Oswin Oswald?!?

What did strike me is the whole "Run" thing - at first I was thinking, well maybe it IS River Song - just regenerated but nah. Since ever since their first meeting she's talking about running 'always running", and then Rose mentioned it. So I dunno...

Although what would be interesting is if she was a completely new race, maybe like a another Time Lord like race, but completely not Gallifraian (Sp) I could hear a line like

"Wot?! You thought you clever boys from Gallifray were the only ones who could bop through time and live seemingly forever?"

I'll admit I haven't read all of this thread so it might have been mentioned but I saw Gabe Newell of Valve has a theory...

Re: The Impossible Girl: Who IS Clara Oswin Oswald?!?

Yeah, that has come up. If not here then amongst other conversations and threads I've engaged in. It would have a lot more potential as a theory if it wasn't so damn creepy to think about her using Dalek technology to recreate herself, a technology that has shown itself to be applied through infecting a pre-existing being.

I think it's going to be something more vague and storytale. They talked about the universe owing the Doctor in this episode. I think it's just going to be that after all the tragedies the Doctor has suffered, the universe (not a specific entity) is finally throwing him a bone and giving him a Kenny. Anytime one dies, he can just pick up a replacement with the same personality from a different time period.
This. Unless it does have something to do with her being a new Silence superweapon.

I fail to see how, even if The Dalek Invasion was erased, or changed so they would win, it would in anyway erase Susan from time?
As I've already explained to you, that is not what I meant in the first place. That's just your misunderstanding of what I meant. I'm not going to defend a position I never actually took.
Then what position did you take?
Maybe he DID take that position but the Daleks travelled back in time and changed it????

DUN-DUN-DUNNNNNNNNNNN!

^The rumor that this might be Smith's last season has been around for quite a while now and it's never been more than a rumor. I think we went through the same thing with Tennant, rumors cropping up in multiple seasons that it might be his last season. And probably with most earlier Doctors too.

I just heard a rumor that Peter Jackson will be directing the 50th anniversary special.

Re: The Impossible Girl: Who IS Clara Oswin Oswald?!?

mmmmmmmmmmm looks as if it not a rumour anymore but in fact reality as matt has gone on record by stating "Matt Smith told telly bosses he wants to bow out as the floppy-haired Time Lord". so matts last episode will be the 2013 xmas special when the new doctor will appear.

He really spoke about himself in the third person? The Mirrorball Man finds that odd.

Okay, there is a rumor (the latest of many) about Smith leaving, but the Beeb's response is noncommittal, that "even we don't know what's going to happen at Christmas." So this is far from a confirmed fact at this point.

They're not really hands-on, are they?
