A Blogtor Who report on a Steven Moffat interview about Clara.
I get frustrated at the people who have complained about Clara in s8, but getting a few pre-emptive anti-hater/pro-Clara comments in would appear to be not the done thing, so I’ll put them here on my own webspace where they won’t bother/be seen by anyone.
It was no more the Clara show than any other series has been companion-led. The first ep of s1 was called Rose, for God’s sake.
The Clara of s8 has been brilliant, and has an actual character. In s7, she was a plot device. The show literally was about her.
Modern Who has always been about the companion, neither Moffat *or* RTD have never denied or apologised for that.
I cannot understand the people who have complained this year. One of the strongest Doctor/companion dynamics there’s been.
They’re not even particularly interesting Tweets. I just don’t like getting my wrist slapped when there are thousands of Moffat/Clara haters who’ll be having a go on the site later in the comments…oh, for fuck’s sake.
