Doctor Who: FACE THE RAVEN - The Game Changing Episode For The Twelfth Doctor
SPOILERS AHOY - If you haven't seen it, don't read this.
Ok, it's happened. There were a lot of rumors and some were right and some were wrong but we knew it was coming...
First a rant about spoilers and people who share them without regard:
I don't understand the insistance and desire by some to actively spoil things for others--- is it that they want to say "Look at me! I know something you don't! Look at me!"
It's been one of those bullsh!t things that happens in fandom since forever but it's annoying and in the internet age it's hard enough to avoid spoilers without these kinds of people.
Back to the ep:
We knew Jenna Coleman was leaving but we didn't know how she would exit. I don't think many predicted her death but it was always possible. Traveling with the Doctor has never been a totally safe thing and Clara wasn't the first to pay the price but it was a hard loss for all of us. Especially for the Twelfth Doctor.
Actually, Jenna Coleman was gone last year. At the end of last season when she and the Doctor said goodbye and lied to each other Jenna was done. That was meant to be Clara's last episode but Jenna asked to come back for the Christmas episode and during that asked to come back for the next season.
Some rumor monger said that Ashielda would become the next companion --- that ain't gonna happen, kids. She is directly responsible for the death of Clara and while he might honor his promise not to seek revenge I doubt he will lift a finger to help her let alone allow her into the Tardis.
So now we move on.
I think that losing Clara is going to be a breaking for point for this Doctor, he's grown since his first days after regenerating but all that "progress" is in question. I would not be surprised if we saw the return of the angry god.
Farewell, Impossible Girl.#DoctorWho #ClaraOswald #FaceTheRaven
