Liam Trim reviews the return of Doctor Who...Warning: Spoilers!
Doctor Who is back and this time the big attraction, at the start of Part Two of Series Seven, was the proper introduction of new companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Yes we've seen her twice before already, in different incarnations, but it's in The Bells of Saint John that the Doctor finally locates a 21st century version, and he's determined that the "woman twice dead" isn't going to die on him a third time.
Indeed, despite beginning the episode in the serious (ish) robes of a monk, it's clear that Matt Smith's Doctor has been reinvigorated by the recurring mystery of Clara's unique personality and unexplainable resurrections. I recently re-watched The Angels Take Manhattan, the farewell episode of Amy Pond and husband Rory, and it's a magnificent send-off, wonderfully written by Steven Moffat. It felt right that »
