The Woman Who Lived Podcast
This week I’m joined by Caitlin Smith, aka abossycontrolfreak on Tumblr, who previously contributed the searingly good guest post on Clara in Series 7 for TARDIS Eruditorum. It just seemed a good one to have her on for, what with Clara not actually being in it and all that. Anyway, she’s brilliant, and I’m a mad editor thing, and that makes for good radio or something. Have a listen here. And tune in next week, when we’ve got a massive exciting guest.

Death seems to be a huge point this season

I like how barely a word was spoken about the lion man and his scheme, in favor of talking about Clara/ragging on Before The Flood. I’ve got to say, this episode is the one where I officially feel like they’re telegraphing Clara’s death too hard. I compared it to mafia goons making a subtle threat to the viewer: “Gee, sure is a nice companion you got there. It’d be an awful shame if anything were to happen to her.”.
So count me on board for Caitlin’s theory about Clara ascending beyond just “the companion who died” to something better and more influential in her death. Please, make it matter beyond something to make the Doctor (and us) really sad.

I would genuinely be impressed if they made Clara’s death make the audience sad! (I don’t hate her, I just… have no opinion of her, which is a bit worrying given how she’s one of the show’s longest running regulars now!)

I’m so certain she’ll be the hybrid by the end of this series, if they’re willing to do this much forshadowing .

Peter Harness? Oh, if only.

I think it’s Kofi Annan next week.

It’s Obama. End of the Presidency, no longer gives a hoot, the First Geek comes out.

I’m hoping for Benedict Cumberbatch, to pick up on any anti-refugee readings of the episode.

My instant assumption is that the guest next week is both “exciting” and “massive”. One of the bloated former Doctors, perchance?

Can I just say, for the record, that I love emotions and character development? I just wish Clara had some, that’s all.

Silly Jack, being literally perfect is a character!! 🙂

Don’t make me bring Caitlin in here.
