Don’t you just love that episode of Doctor Who where ten and rose save the world from the daleks and the cybermen by sucking them into the void? My favorite part is when rose has to fix the lever thingy and she slips but the void closes just before she reaches it and then she and ten run to each other and he’s so happy she’s alive that he kisses her and then she says she loves him and HE SAYS IT BACK and they live happily ever after and have many more adventures and then later adorable half time lord half human kids lol what an awesome episode … *hysterical sobbing*

ITS A FUCKING GIANT ASS DIAMOND
HUMANITIES SOLE PURPOSE IS OBVIOUSLY TO HAUL THAT SUCKER BACK HERE
I want to get an engagement ring without the diamond in it, and propose with it, and when she gets confused, I just show her this through the telescope and be like “I couldn’t find a diamond that deserved you in our solar system, how about that honker?”
Side note: It is named Cancri
Space is cool as fuck

Okay, but none of that means it’s accurate to say “Handles had more development” or “we learned more about [random character of the week]” or “I know more about Danny Pink than I do about Clara”. It’s impossible for Handles to have had more development when he had none. We know maybe 5 things about Danny Pink — we absolutely know more than that about Clara, even if what we know about Clara isn’t enough.
I’m not going to bat for the quality of Clara’s development. I think s7b was not great for Clara, as a character; I think she was pretty static (although I also think she was consistent, Nightmare in Silver outlier notwithstanding) and therefore I think her development was weak. I want s8 to be better for her (and I think it has got off on the right foot in that regard). If people want to criticize the quality of her story or development or the direction of it, you know, sure, fine.
But these constant posts people make trying to prove Moffat sux @ women by …completely disregarding any and all content of those women is not helping the cause. Those arguments look absurd and then it winds up reflecting badly on anyone who criticizes that stuff in any way. Those are exactly the sot of posts people are gonna point to to be like “see, ~Moffat haters~ don’t know what they’re talking about, they’re just making things up!”
And honestly I think it is counterproductive to pretend to be concerned about women’s representation/etc by throwing the whole character under the bus. (See again “Clara is less developed than this one-note robot head”.)
I admit I’m not the first person to stand up for Clara, but I can say that after the last two episodes I have a much better grasp on her as a character. I don’t think we learned more about handles. I think there were times however that we learned more about the minor characters personality in an episode than we did about Clara. Again though, Clara’s not the only character this has happened to and Moffat isn’t the only writer that’s been at the helm during some questionable personality mess ups. So while I think Moffat could have had her character more well rounded during 7b I understand that some things can’t be done.
With that being said, I do agree that some of the posts are getting a bit ridiculous. I’ve hated Clara (up till season 8) and have found some of the posts to be a bit beyond what they should be. People are going out of their way to prove things about Moffat that don’t necessarily fit. It sort of reminds me of some of the Rose hater posts. Things get misinterpreted to the point that people don’t even know what really happened in the episodes anymore. I’m not okay with that. I criticized Clara on the fact that I couldn’t figure out her character and I thought it was because she lacked character, but someone pointed out to me that she had too much of it and that’s sort of what I’ve been able to see now.
Anyway, this last episode made me warm up to Clara in ways that I never thought I would, in ways that I wanted to at the very beginning. I actually loved her in Into the Dalek and found myself, for the first time in ages, enjoying an episode of Doctor Who again, minus some things that bothered me, but I don’t think I’ve ever watched an episode I thought was perfect.
So yeah, I can understand your frustration, but I think what some people are trying to say is that Clara seems one dimensional to them because we lack extensive interaction with her family. Having a character interact with their family is more telling than anything else, because it’s around ones family that they’re most comfortable and tend to act normally. I think we’ll get to see much more of that sort of dynamic with Danny Pink and I’m quite looking forward to it. It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten interested in a companion that’s been around for a dozen episodes already.
