Moffat seems like….really really determined to just throw away any continuity left over from RTD’s run? Because apparently now the Doctor chooses what kind of face he regenerates into? (So what’s the deal with him never being ginger?) And he chose to be young for Clara? (So what’s the deal with his previous two regenerations also being young?) (He also….was deeply in love with Rose until he got a wife out of nowhere and then had a weird thing with Amy but also was definitely into Clara. Yeesh.) Also, I am relieved to see we have received our MYSTERIOUS WOMAN who has FEELINGS for the Doctor and undoubtedly knows SECRETS as well. My only worry is that she may not be able to out-spunk his companion. Can’t wait for this season’s repeated to death catchphrase!
I thought the Doctor had no control over any of the faces he had anyway. And choosing to seem young to attract the attention of a very young woman is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay creepier than happening to look young while befriending a young woman. (It’s like Moffat looks as his storyline and thinks, “How can I make this creepier?”)
I can understand different regenerations loving different people, I suppose, because in some ways they’re different people themselves (although it makes me curious about relationships between Time Lords - did they marry each incarnation separately?).
Hahahaha that is such a good point. We’ve seen a lot of Clara and River but don’t worry, there’s a new mysterious woman who we don’t know anything about except that she’s attrracted to the Doctor. WHAT AN ORIGINAL IDEA, I WONDER IF THIS STORYLINE WILL INVOLVE FLIRTING AND SEXY BANTER.
