“Clara, tell me, am I a good person?” “I…don’t know.”
For Doctor Who fans, this simple question, the first official vocal interaction between Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) might mark a big change between the connection between the Doctor and his companion.
For most of the nu-Who incarnations, the Doctor and his companions have always been buddies and playful, not straight away of course, but there has never been an underlying fear in the relationship, though the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) was rough around the edges.
To see Clara not able to answer the new Doctor’s simple question, it might make fans wonder, just how dark the new protagonist will be for his turn inside the TARDIS. Since the anouncement to cast Capaldi as the titular character, there had been confirmation that helis Doctor would be darker than any of the others. For now, fans of the hit British sci-fi program will have to rely on the trailers and supposed “spoilers” until the series return on August 23 on BBC America.
Check out the new trailer which premiered during what else, the World Cup 2014 finals, feature a host of old friends and villains as well as our world saving pair.
