Doctor Who...Doctor Who...this is a hard one.

Taken from Urban Dictionary:

A female character who is so perfect that she is annoying. Mary-Sues are characters who are usually extraordinarily gorgeous, amazingly talented, unusually powerful, and exceedingly attractive to whoever the author has a crush on.

I hate to say this but Clara Oswin Oswald is a Mary-Sue. She jumped into the Doctor's timeline and continually saved him supposedly many times to counter act what ~The Great Intelligence~ was doing to his timelines.

I have very mixed feelings about this. There is just a lot that doesn't make sense. A lot of people would be like 'Oooh Moffat! You fiend!' I suppose he is responsible for it but the writing of the episode, it wasn't terrible it was just really plot-holey.

The Doctor's Friends - I have never been really fond of them to be honest, I feel that it would have had more weight if you included his past companions maybe? I know that is asking for a lot.

The Great Intelligence - Wow he had some issues didn't he? What I don't understand is why he was so darn pissed of at the Doctor enough that he would jump into his timeline just to ruin him. He has only been in three episodes total this series and what he was planning at the time it didn't seem like that big of a deal. While we're on the subject, how did ~The Great Intellegence~ know so much? Do not say it is because he is intelligent, I do not buy it. When describing the Doctor, he said a word that I hadn't heard before (apparently it was from classic who? We'll get to it in a minute) but like, how could he know that word?

The Valeyard - This is the word I was talking about, according to the Tardis wiki: "The Valeyard was according to the Master an amalgamation of the darker side of the Doctor's nature. It is your penultimate reincarnation, somewhere between his twelfth and thirteenth regeneration". Now how would The Great Intelligence know that? Supposedly it is the future and it hasn't happened yet...

Or has it?

Introducing John Hurt as the Doctor - First off, Fuck yeah John Hurt. I love John Hurt and I want to see what they do with him. Eleven seemed truly scared of him which tells me that he in fact might be The Valeyard. (Maybe his darkness came out a little early due to the time war?) I figure the time war was just after eight took over and then he renounced the title of Doctor to take care of time lord business and then took it back up again when he became nine. That is why he doesn't consider John Hurt as a regeneration, because he wasn't The Doctor at the time.

Matt Smith's Acting - Flawless, when Clara was telling him about Trenzolore he looked so damn broken, I wanted to cuddle him. Also his face when he was saying goodbye to River *tears up*

River Song - She was really the best part of the episode for me, the part where the Doctor grabbed her hand and they had their moment was just aww, my shipper heart! But I got the feeling that we weren't going to be seeing her any more. What is also funny is that this was also post Library, how did River get into the hippie tea room if everyone else used smells and she just...zapped in? Odd.

Whouffle - If you don't know what that is, it's the Eleven/Clara ship name and I just don't see it like at all. I suppose it's nice for people who do but it feels really awkward.

So..Silence will fall when the question is asked. Did the silence fall? Well who knows, it's not like we can remember them but did it really have anything to do with this prophecy? And even then not much came of it. Everything is fiine! Well at least at the moment. There is something else I want to mention from one of the earlier episodes that is a little suspicious too:

The Big Book on the Gallifreyan Time War - So in the library on board the TARDIS, The Doctor has this book on the Gallifreyan Time War. It apparently mentions his real name and Clara knows (or knew before her memory got wiped) what it was. Problems I have with this include:

+ Who the hell wrote this book? It's not like there were archaeologists around who could dig up artifacts that told of what went on during the war.

+ The Doctor really doesn't like his real name and yet it was written in the book? The book wasn't even locked up, it was just sitting on a pedestal where anyone could see it.

+ Did the Doctor write the book? If so, guy is way more broody than first thought, that book is thick. He probably spent years writing it.

+ Pretty sure the book is written in Gallifreyan. The TARDIS doesn't translate Gallifreyan. Can she read it because part of her spliced up bits ended up on Gallifrey that one time?

The 50th Anniversary - I will be watching, oh yes. I've always wanted to know what happened during the Time War and it looks like we are going to get to see it. Oh and I guess Tennant would be there also. What would make it ideal for me (Though it's pretty much not going to happen.) Is if Donna was there.

I'm so ambivalent about Eleven in general, and the new season just made it worse. I can't find it in me to care about him. I watch because it's habit and sometimes entertaining, but it's not the same for me. Moffat took over and it's not the same. And Clara...don't get me started on Clara. I wanted to like her, but...you're right, she's a Mary Sue.

I cared more when the Ponds were there! They were awesome buddies and it just made a better show. I really wanted to like Clara, I mean she's cute but am I really supposed to believe she was there all the time saving him? Just grr...
