You actually make me wish they had used her as a Romana. I love both the Romanas and they are both very spunky ad Jenna-Louise Coleman would make a fantastic Romana 3, IMHO

If Lalla decides to give up the Audios, I'd certainly welcome an opportunity to explore JLC as a Regenerated Romana

I personally think Lalla Ward should come back as a guest appearance. I don't really see the need for a new Romana companion - she belongs too much with Tom Baker, but she would be great to see.

Oswin in Asylum of the Daleks reminded me of Zoe. Only hornier.

I don't think it's Clara you're thinking of with that last part.

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

I know that after a rather weak (imo) start to the season (aside from Asylum, I really enjoyed that one), this whole Clara mystery has reinvigorated my interest in the show. It helps that I've really taken a liking to Jenna, and cannot wait to see her become Eleven's new companion.

Damn, why do we have to wait till April?

I've seen her compared to Zoe and Victoria, but you know who she really reminds me of? Dawn Wells. If they ever get that Gilligan's Island feature film remake off the ground, Coleman would be a fantastic Mary Ann.


Anyway, I don't want her to be a trap, or someone who dies every week, or any of that gimmicky stuff. I don't want her to be a story arc, I want her to be a companion, one who can stick around for a good long run and be a fully realized character rather than just a plot device.

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

The other possibility to her being fragmented is that she is a personified version of Bad Wolf, sent through time by the Doctor himself. "Memory" and "remembering" seem to be memes that are following her as well. If the anniversary is, indeed, Trenzalore and the asking of the question, perhaps she is connected to that as the answer or a link to the answer - sort of like a transgalactic, transtemporal reminder - message that River or the Doctor or River & the Doctor or the other Doctors themselves create and send back through the 11th Doctor's own timestream as a means of reminding him of who he is when the time comes or she (the "contemporary day" Clara we see volunteers to become this for him/them.

Honestly, I almost hate speculating as it builds up my expectations too much. I had all these insane theories about how The Doctor would cheat death in Series 6 and it turned out it was just uh... a robot copy we saw die. Probably the simplest, most mundane explanation possible.

Well, in fairness, Amy was essentially just a plot device in Season 5. The only reason The Doctor decided to keep her around was because of the crack in her wall. Once the cracks were sealed, though, she became his friend and, I think, the best companion that he has had since Rose (in terms of his relationship with her, not in terms of how much fans like her).

He was going to take Clara on as companion before he knew she was a plot device. Then she died. Now she is a mystery that he wants to solve. Once solved, assuming she's still alive, there's no reason she can't make the transformation from plot device to actual character.

I think this is about right. I suspect it's just the year's plot (the only one that spanned more than a year is River and that's because she didn't appear every episode).

I think it shall all be revealed in the specials and probably the last one when they hope to have as many as the doctors back as possible.
