The Eleventh Doctor may have had one or two “moments” with his favourite girl Amy Pond, but it was never going to be another Jo, Sarah Jane or Rose situation, was it?
However, things could be different with Clara…
Various rumours have suggested that some sort of romance might be on the cards for the Doctor and Clara, and while we know that these things can get blown out of all proportion in order to draw in viewers, we should also not lose sight of the fact that audiences love a will-they/won’t-they subplot.
Discussing this at the recent press screening for The Snowmen, actress Jenna-Louise Coleman hinted that there is something more to the Doctor-Clara relationship.
“I think there is definitely a romantic tone to this particular episode.”
Smith added: “It can change every week, that’s the beauty of it. One week it’s a love story, one week it’s an action adventure.”
Of course, the use of the term “romantic term” could simply mean a happily satisfying ending. We’ll just have to wait and see…
