I really, really, really want to change my wifi password to "rycbar123" but it's probably not the best choice right now

All three have been some kind of caretakers of others.

Probably people renaming their networks to a bunch of symbols as well.

The Clever Boy meme was kind of weird as well but I'll wait to see how that mystery unravels.

So do we learn anything about Clara at all, or how she can possibly be the same dead person in Victorian England and in the future on a Dalek gulag? Or is just like, "Oh hey, Clara, there you are, must just be some timey-whimey thing!".
The latter. If you've seen The Eleventh Hour, you'll know how this plays out: she is a puzzle box, he knows something is up but for some reason doesn't explain that to her, he decides to bring her along to unravel the mystery.

Gotcha, I was running all the thoughts together, it would explain those skills.

I was afraid of that.

This computer-gal reminds me of Judi Dench.

You know, I realize that in nuWho the sonic-screwdriver has become something of an all-purpose tool, but seriously, is there anything it doesn't do?

Wood, and any other plot point it shouldn't magic for the Doctor.

Outstanding episode, never expected that character to show up at the end. I bet Clara coming back over and over is tied in with this character that was behind the scenes running the organization.

The sonic's real purpose is to tighten the pacing of the plot. You know when they have to invent something like the deadlock seal to stop it that the sonic screwdriver will do whatever is needed.

Like I said... Is there anything it doesn't do?

You gotta love a boss who lets their underlings take their vacation time before killing them, at least.
