I think s8 has so far been the best one of the Moffat era and I’ve actually been enjoying it, but the continued insistence on inserting Clara into the Doctor’s past timeline to influence his choices is getting more than a little grating. You don’t need to make her ‘the most important companion’ by repeatedly putting her on Gallifrey and entangling her timeline and words so that the Doctor incorporates them into his life. (Srsly did she just indirectly help him become a Time Lord? What even was that??)
Let her stand on her own two feet, write her well, write her compellingly, and she will be plenty important on her own. There are no shortcuts. And the wibbly-wobbly elements are being used as a crutch and aren’t serving the character, or the story.
But what Moffat is doing to her now, just…. >.<… it’s not fair to the character, it’s not fair to the canon of the show, and it’s not fair to past companions.
