** Zigzagged with Clara. Although the episode reveals that she remembers information she heard in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E10JourneyToTheCentreOfTheTardis Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS]]", even though the timeline was reset, one key piece of information that does not survived that she obtained in the previous episode was the Doctor's name.

* TheMissusAndTheEx: Clara, the Doctor's current companion (and, it is implied heavily, most recently in the "She Said, He Said", someone he has fallen for) meets and works alongside River Song, the Doctor's former companion and onetime wife. (At this point in the series, the Doctor is believed to have already said goodbye to River before her death, and it is stated several times in this episode that both River and the Doctor accept that she is now dead.)

(At this point in the series, the Doctor is believed to have already said goodbye to River before her death, and it is stated several times in this episode that both River and the Doctor accept that she is now dead.)) At one point, Clara asks the Doctor if River is an "ex" and the Doctor confirms this (later to zigzag by referring to River as his wife, which startles Clara).



** We only glimpse a couple of moments where a Clara echo is actually shown effecting the Doctor's behaviour. All the thousands upon thousands of actions the many Claras took to undo the Great Intelligence's interference take place off screen.



** When the Doctor finds out he has to go to Trenzalore, he begins to cry.

** When the Doctor finds out he has to go to Trenzalore, he begins to cry.cry, as in approaching full-out bawling.



** When she thinks Jenny is dead, the usually reserved and cultured Vastra threatens to cut Strax up; Strax, in turn, pushes Vastra to the ground. This is even more startlingly OOC than the previous example with Strax because there is no actual timeline change to cause it.



* RippleEffectProofMemory: As the Doctor's timeline is torn asunder, all those he's affected suffer the consequences. Vastra, strangely, keeps her memory, but perhaps the ripples simply hadn't got to her yet. She ''is'' chronologically older than everyone else by several million years. Clara and River are also unaffected, but being in the (older) TARDIS probably had something to do with that.

After Clara enters the Doctor's timestream and defeats the Great Intelligence, Strax can be heard apologizing to Vastra for his time ripple-effected behaviour, which he appears to remember.


Added DiffLines:

** The "conference call", never before seen before (or, as of 2016, since) is never fully explained. Such as how a woman sleeping in 2013 could be brought into it, and how River, who at this point in her existence is little more than data in a 50th-century library, could also take part.

* HilariousInHindsight: The 2015 Christmas special would reveal that [[spoiler: by the time of her death in the Library, River had already met the Twelfth Doctor. It is therefore very possible that, despite not letting on, she already knows at least something of Clara Oswald. This adds extra humour to her realization that the Doctor had given Clara the impression that River was a man.]]


Added DiffLines:

** River once again demonstrates that she knows the Doctor's name, though we do not hear.

Clara's scattered across time and space, from Gallifrey to Earth, seeing the Doctor -- ''all'' Doctors -- move around her. She confronts the First Doctor and Susan when they're about to steal the TARDIS, spots the Sixth while he walks past her on the TARDIS, tries to get the attention of the Third [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors as he's driving by in]] [[CoolCar Bessie]], follows the Fourth as he's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E6TheInvasionOfTime walking through corridors on Gallifrey]], rushes after the Second [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome while he's having an adventure with the Eighth]], watches the Fifth as he's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E1ArcOfInfinity trapped inside the Matrix]], tries to rescue the Seventh while he's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS24E4Dragonfire dangling from a cliff on Ice World]], and confronts the Eleventh when he's [[Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen temporarily retiring in 19th century London]]. None of them, except the First and the Eleventh, ever properly notice her.

* SorryThatImDying: Jenna tearfully apologizes to Vastra that has just been murdered.

to:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Technically, every version of Clara is said to be a unique individual, but linked to the Doctor. So if every echo seen is a different person, then the "Clara" seen guiding the First Doctor to the proper TARDIS may be the smallest role with the biggest impact of all, as her actions basically made the ''entire franchise'' happen.

** The title is an example as well: It doesn't refer to The Doctor's name, as many expected, but rather to the name "The Doctor" and what it means to use it.

The Doctor tries to urge Clara to leave his timestream and not question the origins of the figure in front of them, desperately masking that person's identity. But she's already seen the one thing no one should have ever had access to inside the Doctor's memories. His biggest secret isn't his name, it's a person (played by Creator/JohnHurt). A regeneration of the Doctor who committed an act so horrifying, he had to ''give up'' [[TitleDrop the name of "the Doctor"]]. To be continued...
