I am doubtful about the recent (since Clara) writing on Doctor Who. The show seems to have gotten too "huge" for its own good. I know that they are building up to the 50th anniversary, but the majority of the moments don't need to be so cartoonishly uber epic. Also, I like Clara, but she seems like a caricature. She doesn't possess the feel of being a real person that was had by previous companions. The constant quick, witty banter gives the show an air of a comedy from the 1940s. I suppose, though, that if she turns out to be a Time Lord or something, it makes sense for her to be talking like The Doctor.
