* 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 Great Intelligence reveals that Trenzalore is where the Doctor died, during a minor skirmish that was nothing compared to any of his other battles -- but it was enough to finally kill him. Both the Great Intelligence and the Doctor know that only his name can open the tomb, but the Doctor refuses to say it, even when the Whispermen are about to murder his friends. It's River who does eventually say it, unheard by anyone. The tomb opens and reveals the Doctor's corpse in the very core of the decaying TARDIS -- a mass of light representing every scar the Doctor ever left in the web of time with his travels. The Great Intelligence steps inside it, and begins to work his way through the Doctor's life, erasing the Doctor's actions throughout time and space. Soon enough, [[TheStarsAreGoingOut the stars start going out]]. Jenny vanishes (to Vastra's great distress) since she was never saved by the Doctor, and Strax, who never bettered his life, becomes a more unhinged Sontaran than we've seen, and begins to attack Vastra, forcing her to vaporize him. Clara realizes what she has to do in order to save reality and follows the Great Intelligence inside, scattering herself across time and space along with him. Everywhere the Great Intelligence tried to stop the Doctor, a reborn version of Clara would be there, native to that time period, to preserve the timeline. Like River, she'd be nothing more than a copy, but she'd have a chance to keep reality safe.

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 incarnation of the Doctor who committed an act so horrifying, he had to ''give up'' [[TitleDrop the name of "the Doctor"]]. To be continued...

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E9Hide Hide]]", Clara asks the Doctor if everyone he meets is just a ghost to him, since everyone's already dead from his perspective as a time traveller. His reluctance to answer in that episode was because of her impossible nature, but as this episode reveals, not in the least because he sees ''himself'' as a ghost as well for that reason.

* ShaggyDogStory: One where the villain is on the receiving end. The Great Intelligence goes into the Doctor's timeline to undo all the good he had done, knowing full well that the process would ultimately kill him. However, Clara jumps in after him and [[BuffySpeak undoes his undoing]] of the Doctor's efforts (or at least putting a band-aid on the damage), ensuring that the Great Intelligence's schemes were in vain and [[ShootTheShaggyDog that he died for nothing.]], [[DeathSeeker although there are several hints that the Great Intelligence had another motivation for stepping into the timeline]].

** It turns out that the foreshadowing and the fuss about the Doctor's true name becomes one of these, as it's revealed right at the end that the Doctor's name was never the real secret.
