* The Doctor Who novel The ''Glamour Chase'' pulls one at the end, where Rory is upset about how unfair it is that one of the characters had to deal with the horrors of PTSD all alone, in a time before it was understood and before treatment was possible. The Doctor interrupts by hugging him and kissing his forehead, telling him not to lose that compassion, because sometimes, he forgets himself how important it is.

** It's both the fact that, even on her own, Clara would have lived a life of adventure and even find a way to jugle her job ''and'' her adventures without any time machine, and, well, the revelation that as much as she tried to ignore them or move on from them, her feelings for the Doctor ''remained unchanged all along'' even after the regeneration and her encounters with his edgier sides, and that she was at least able to tell him when she had nothing more to lose by it. Then, of course, you find out it's a dream and your reaction goes straight into happy excited squealing.

* The actress Jenna Coleman is on record as stating that when Clara says "I love you" after talking to Danny, those words were directed towards the Doctor, not Danny. This is followed by Clara unreservedly forgiving the Doctor for what happened in "Kill the Moon", eliciting the first full-out cheshire cat grin the Twelve Doctor is ever seen doing.



* The Doctor playing "Pretty Woman" when he sees Clara, and her smiling over it. Even sweeter considering all the ugly jokes he aimed at Clara in Series 8.

* The Doctor playing "Pretty Woman" when he sees Clara, and her smiling over it. Even sweeter considering all the ugly jokes he aimed at Clara in Series 8. This moment marks a major turn for the character as he never insults her appearance at all in Series 9.




to:

* Although the circumstances are dramatic, in retrospect (knowing the outcome) the fact the Doctor cares for Clara so much he's willing to go on bended knee to Davros to plead for her life.



** It has been pointed out that the Doctor actually ''does'' use real sign language twice: once when he accidentally signs "you're beautiful" to Cass, and later a number of fans have pointed out that during the scene described in the next bullet the Doctor places his right hand into the position of the ASL sign for "I love you". The fact he does this just before uttering "I have a duty of care" for the first time this season, given its revealed meaning at the end of the season, this may or may not have been coincidental.




to:

** His statement "I have a duty of care" takes on a completely new context by the end of the season.



* The reunion of Twelve and Clara involves an adorable [[https://33.media.tumblr.com/3d3a3dea466779b27319217157013962/tumblr_nwf1qnaBOw1utl779o1_500.gif spinning hug]], in a CallBack to the one from "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]". The preceding gag involving Twelve hesitating about it for a second or two, before he merrily embraces Clara, makes it all the more lovely. The episode delved quite a bit into the Doctor and Clara fearing for how long they'll still be together, but it's occassions like this that show how perfectly happy they are enjoying gentle moments as two great friends.

* the FriendshipMoment when Clara's turn to ''face the raven,'' comes. The Doctor is demanding that Ashildr call off the Raven, and starts to make it clear ''exactly'' what will happen otherwise. Ashildr can't; an AntiVillain by this point, she really ''would'' now that her plan's purpose has been served, but Clara was not its designated target at first, and changing that has changed the rules. Clara unwittingly "cut me out of the deal". Clara uses what would be the last moments of her life by saying that it was no one else's fault but hers for choosing to take the risk, and thinks mostly of the Doctor though she is clearly afraid. When the Doctor vows revenge, she tells him that if this is to be the last she sees of him, let it not be like this, and to be the Doctor, not a warrior. She calms the Oncoming Storm by telling him that YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre the way only one who knows him so well can.

* After Moffat earlier didn't have the budget to recreate the original TARDIS set for "The Doctor's Wife," he was able to do it here. It also must have been like an early Christmas gift to Peter Capaldi, who's been a fan since the show's beginning.

to:

* A meta-example: (and tying into the point immediately above): upon learning of the Doctor's sacrifice, and in an echo of the moment in "Before the Flood" when Bennett encouraged Cass and Lunn to say things to one another before it's too late, Clara tells the Doctor there are things "me and you should say to one another." What those things are, we do not know as the camera pans out to the strains of Clara's {{leitmotif}}, giving the two characters privacy. Afterwards, Ohila demands to know what Clara said to the Doctor, to which Clara tells Ohila ([[LeaningOnTheFourthWall and the audience]]) that those words will remain private.

beginning. Even the episode's script mentions that Capaldi would probably be acting very excited during these scenes.


Added DiffLines:

** The above scene is also notable for indicating that River is mistaken in her assertion that the Doctor does not love people, both in the direct sense (her) and in the meta sense as we've just seen an entire season in which the Doctor's love for Clara Oswald was demonstrated repeatedly and in fact his very ability to finally let River go to meet her fate at the Library is a direct result of the lessons he learned from what happened with Clara (the memory of which he still possesses - "Hell Bent" dialogue only says he lost knowledge of her personality and certain key moments).
