And it's taken me until last episode to realise that I didn't like Clara because she was previously (and probably will be again) written TERRIBLY. These last two episodes she actually came over as an actual person.

I'd forgotten I'd switched over to OpenDNS until I read this story...

You're lucky - I ALSO read the guy's name as "Ferenghi"
They didn't say it wasn't true...
...only that no-one had proved it.

Sadly, it took me a few seconds to realise why you might want to call your child that.

"Oh, no, worse than that - they liked us!"
that's what the iWatch is going to be for!
Glad to hear...
