TBH they’re setting up a sad, difficult situation built on bad decisions for Clara and the Doctor and Danny, but most of the time, when things build up like this into a shitstorm, they aren’t going to truly end all cynical and dark with everybody sad and losing everybody they love.
This is Doctor Who. They are building up the angst now to keep you on the edge of your seats, and you’re gonna be sad and nervous for a while, shit will eventually hit the fan, and then everyone has a happy ending in the end when problems get resolved, people apologize, and bonds are renewed or changed for the better.
Get a grip everyone, because they aren’t going to have everything be angsty and difficult with no positive payoffs in the end.
big finish though
one leaving susan behind
two being forced from jamie and zoe
I mean ok they retconned it but they also did “peri and the piscon paradox”
