The Rings of Akhaten

I'm a sucker for anything bathed in golden light, I've come to realise. Also space, also possibility being powerful. So all that, plus Clara with Mary/Merry and then saving the day, plus 11's speech about everything he's done that wasn't quite overblown (actually, I'm a sucker for that sort of speech too) made me adore this episode. It's lovely. I feel that is a key word in the Clara era, lovely. Oh, Amy was fine but I don't want to be like her, a little hollow and brittle and angry and perpetually broken. Clara has a presence I want to bathe in, warmth and sweet... come to think of it, I'm not sure how much of that comes just from the way JLC looks. She's so adorable.* She has brown hair and wonderful eyebrows. Hmm.

So if I never figured out if the big glowy thing was a planet or a star, and whether or not it was still there at the end of the episode, eh. I do not mind.

*Jenna is pretty and Freema is beautiful and Alex is gorgeous. And the others meh, I don't want to look like them.
