All my life, I seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. My grandpa, Stanley Yelnats the second, says it’s all because of this 150 year old curse. Now, I don’t really believe in the family curse but when things go wrong, it kinda helps if you can blame it on something. And for me, things went wrong a lot. Grandpa says our destiny is sealed. Could a pair of shoes falling from the sky really be my destiny? - Holes (2003)
I want very little of series 8 (apart from it to just get here already) but one of the things I think I really need is for the Doctor and Clara it run into one of Clara’s echos. I want to see Clara and especially the Doctor have to come to terms with the idea that these women are not just echoes, but people who live and breathe and love and live and all have to die to save the Doctor. It’s actual canon within the show - as shown by Clara Oswin Oswald appearing as a child - that each of them is born, grows up and has a life outside of the Doctor for around as long as the original Clara did. They’re not any less important than her or any other person. It’s easy enough to ignore when you don’t see them but I think that it’s important that they confront the ramifications of Clara saving the Doctor apart from, you know, saving the Doctor.
