~If you haven't watched Series 7 but wish to not know the result, or my opinions, click away!~Series 7 began with the "Asylum of the Daleks” where we meet the most insane Dalek of them all, Souffle Girl. Oswin insists that she has managed to fend off the Daleks, not just make souffles. Neither the Doctor, Amy or Rory are aware that Clara is of such intelligence and emotion she has become a Dalek Cyborg- one who cannot kill the Doctor. And neither can the other Daleks, the conclusion is none of them know who he is. Oswald seems pretty remarkable... Can she get better?
To be honest I don’t remember much of the second and third episodes. Let’s just they weren’t as critically acclaimed as the previous episode and the following “The Power Of Three”. Essentially an episode about black boxes which the Doctor cannot figure out. Are they part of a Big-Brother-esque campaign to watch humanity?... Will they drive the Doctor insane? Timelord turned insomniac, the Doctor watches, and watches and, well, is very impatient. Even the TARDIS hasn’t been a cat so how is he supposed to know what’s inside seemingly ordinary boxes? They start to blend in with everything else in the world becoming paperweights and building blocks. All the time being watched by Brian Williams. All the time undergoing tests- they are indestructable.

ANGELS TAKE MANHATTAN next. I'm capitalizing that because it’s a scream. A cry. Manhattan took the Ponds! So glad I don’t live in Manhattan. Do you need a reason? Yes, Rory couldn't be saved & that means Amy would wish to go too... As heartbroken as the Doctor was it was the right ending; I like how River could do a sort of something about it whereas the Doctor? He’s a lost timelord who really needs to watch a certain video once done with that fabulous afterword! *heart breaks* The video he needs to watch? It's the cutest storyboard ever! Have you watched?
|When she was little... If you thought Clara was a timelord!|
Clara just so happens to, even if she's not a timelord, meet The Great Intelligence twice. And she may just say "Run you clever boy and remember" lots, too. This time it becomes apparent that the GI can also inhabit machinery... They didn't settle for just Miss Kizlet... She's nothing special. Unlike Clara, the WIFI, The Doctor, River Song & about a million other things, obviously. Like how Clara now has computer skills which'll help the Dalek's... There is no way Clara couldn't accompany the Doctor! So, he's gained a companion who has a certain book... And another book with a leaf in. It's all related to that little child Clara there, and her family. You're probably familiar with all the awesomeness in TBofSJ and also in Rings Of Akhaten- there wasn't a lot of trivia in that episode IMHO but the speech... 'WOOOOAAHH'- in Doctor Who! To be honest I wouldn't like the premise of Episode 7 as much as the actual episode...
"Hide" is a fantastic title for an equally stunning episode. Short, sweet, snappy title and the episode seemed it likewise. We weren't bombarded with references that would fuel certain theories. We were simply thrown into an episode which'd confuse us very little. I personally don't think just because Clara & Rose both struggled to accept the long-dead Earth they have a strong connection. That's like saying they're connected because they both have hearts.
Talking of hearts, apparently the Doctor has a sliver of ice in one of his hearts. What's the other one? I'm guessing she's not as empathic as she'd like. Perhaps it takes another Doctor to diagnose Doctor Who (or What)?
Looking forward to November, aren't you? Catching Fire. Doctor Who *sighs*
