Just in case you needed an additional reason to be excited for the “Doctor Who” finale on Saturday, we have it for you here. The extended clip below gives us a fantastic insight from both The Doctor and Clara about not only their feelings for each other, but how they have managed to fully figure each other out.
The past few episodes of the series specifically have tried to delve into the idea of an origin story telling us who these people really are, and whether or not it was fate or some other factor that ended up bringing them each together. Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman have what is in our eyes awesome chemistry, and it shows even when they are performing monologues about each other.
Ironically, our favorite line of the entire scene is one that both characters say, albeit with entirely different words surrounding it: “I’m used to not knowing, and I thought I never would. But I was wrong.”
As for how much of these two characters’ lives we find out about in this episode, the jury’s still out on that. Part of the allure of The Doctor over the years has been his constant air of mystery, and it is impossible (to use the word with a key reference in mind) to give away everything and still enjoy the character so much. The same could be said for Clara to an extent, as eventually these two could come to a key realization: Isn’t the fact that they have each other now more important than how they managed to have each other?
It’s not all sunshine and roses for either moving forward into “The Name of the Doctor”: There are Whispermen ahead, and you can read more about these creepy characters over here.
