When she first appeared unexpectedly in “Asylum of the Daleks”, we were all shocked and left unable to form a proper opinion. When she then returned (in another form) in “The Snowmen”, we fell in love, only to mourn her inexplicable death. And when ‘Clara Prime’ finally joined us in “The Bells of St. John,” we reached the point of wondering what the hell was really going on. Now that we’re on the other side of a character-driven and well-structured Series 8, and we have a fully realized and appreciated Clara Oswald, it leaves us wondering what paths our resourceful and complex Companion has yet to walk.
This week, we look at the substantial growth Clara’s character has had thus far, and discuss what we would both like to see — and what we expect to see — in the upcoming ninth series. Do we want her to continue her journey towards becoming more like the Doctor himself? Do we want her to find happiness and contentment with her lot in life? Do we want her unceremoniously killed off? (Or do we just want her to finally get us that coffee we ordered weeks ago? Worst waitress…ever. What? She was just a customer there, too? Well, now we look foolish, don’t we?)
