The Doctor has a thing that lets people call him in the future so I figure he could fix that.

Who said it would be every episode?


I'm just assuming they'd drive the point home as much as possible, otherwise there's really no point to it. If she just interacts with the Doctor normally, then what difference does it make what time period she's from?

You can take any good idea and ruin it like that, so it's no reason to diss a particular bad idea.

Food is good, right? Everyone likes food. But it would get old real fast if we tied people to chairs and force fed them until bacon came out of their noses and they died. I'm just assuming that's what would happen if we tried to cure world hunger. There are no other possibilities.

Having a modern day companion gets old, as well, and we already have done that to death. No reason not to try something new for a while. It's not like you're locked into a contract for the rest of time. Eventually, the actress is going to get offered a movie or Moffat's going to go off and remake Dracula or something and I'm sure we'll be right back to having the Doctor meet a new young, British female companion from the modern day ONLY THIS TIME SHE'S FEISTY AND A REAL EQUAL TO THE DOCTOR UNLIKE ALL THE OTHER TIMES SO IT'S TOTALLY DIFFERENT!

Having said that, Clara is hot, so whatever.

I think the next regular companion should be an Alien, or a human from the future.

Where they're from is completely irrelevant to me. They're not defined by what era they come from, unless the writers do the exact thing I mentioned earlier by playing up the differences in technology and customs, and all that all the time..

They're defined by their personalities and their interactions with the Doctor.

Clara from The Snowmen is pretty interchangeable with modern Clara, for example, in that regard. :smt102

Dudes, Clara is dating Robb Stark in the real world.

They are the Nerd King and Queen.

I hope it happens this season, in the finale or something, and they don't put it off until next year.

I felt like Chris had a couple strong points there, for a minute.

But now I see otherwise.
