Geronimo!!! Time to take a ride in the tardis once again. This time we have a new companion. Now I personally like her. Her name is Clara. I don’t know if you remember her but she first appeared in the Daleks Asylum. That was a very interesting episode. I even knew from that episode she would be back again. Not sure how they would of brought her back but leave it to Steven Moffat to do the impossible.

What better way to gather your thoughts but to go back in 1207 in a monastery. I would of gone to the 60’s. Peace and love!!

Now lets see how this new episode of Dr. Who stacks up. We start off with the Doctor trying to make sense of what he experienced at the Christmas special. Yeah Clara died fighting the snowmen. Sad ending but not the end. The universe felt like screwing with the Doctor. I personally think the universe is a woman like the tardis and enjoy watching the Doctor run up and down through time.

Imagine that. The Doctor decided to become a monk and just think about her. Obsessive much..

Anyway if you have been keeping count Clara died two times so far. Once at the daleks and then by the evil snowmen. Now what she told the Doctor before she died is the clue. Yes we all know there will be an end game. Something that will have us foaming at the mouth with anticipation. I am talking bad wolf excitement. Not Amy and Rory dead for no reason ending. Still don’t know what made Amy so special. So she had a crack in the wall. How did it get there? I will save that for another time.

I know this have got to be a massive clue. Not sure how as yet but I will find out..

Hmm Do you think that this was the "Bell of Saint John"
Hmm Do you think that this was the “Bell of Saint John” You Clever little boy.

So we have Clara calling the Doctor and asking him how to connect to the WiFi. Now get this she claimed someone in the shop gave her the number and said that “she” told her that he is the best person in the “Universe” to fix her problem. Now I am gonna step out on a limb here and say that it was River Song. Could be someone else but she more fit the bill. Now for the interesting part. The Wifi. Every Dr. Who episode have a villain. This time around is a soul snatching parasite that feeds on human souls. They live in the Wifi. Just like Dr. Who to take what we see as innocent and harmless and make us paranoid. Example the Weeping angels. I see a statue now and I want to destroy it before it destroys me.

I have a bad feeling about this now. Without warning we can be seeing twists and turns with this new enemy. You don't know when they will show up..

So she clicks the wrong thing and now the evil Wifi people got her. Now here we have an adorable little girl standing at the stairs. Her head spins around and this spoon shaped head is revealed. Begins to download her soul. Dr. Who swoops in with his screw driver and hacks into the system and get her back. Now here is the interesting part that links her back to the Asylum of the Daleks. The Dr. while brining her back she brings along this immense knowledge of computers. Which makes her the most awesome companion ever. A female computer geek. Totally sexy in my book any day. She had no prior knowledge of computers and now coud hack into the enemies database and turn on webcams and take pics. That is the Dr. Who version of the matrix.

Who needs a gun when you have a Sonic Screw Driver.

While pulling here from the World Wide Web she gain a new found power. The power of the Geek gods. To hack almost anything!!! Dr. Who getting all matrix up in the piece!

This episode was very insightful and sets a great tone for what is to come. I hope they answer some of the questions they have looming over my head. Especially the number one question. Who is Clara? I have a new reason to look forward for Saturday now. Dr. Who is back! I will enjoy every episode and try my best to talk about it like a avid fan boy! Till later stay frosty!
