A SmugSnake through the first couple of seasons, she had a striking talent for picking up the [[WhatAnIdiot Idiot Ball]] and was often the textbook personification of EpicFail. She came close to being pulled from the heap in Season 3 after [[spoiler:the birth and subsequent kidnapping of her first child]] garnered her sympathy, especially since she appeared to [[TookALevelInKindness take a level in kindness]] in the scenes with [[spoiler:Meisner]].

** Rather amazingly, the resultant [[spoiler:second pregnancy, this time with Nick's child]], gave rise to an an incredibly successful redemption arc, which started in the Season 4 episode "Iron Hans" and continued without letup through the end of the series. It helped that her rival Juliette [[spoiler:was busy going through a FaceHeelTurn and traveling much further across the MoralEventHorizon than Adalind ever did]] at about the same time. By Season 6, after [[spoiler:earning her way to SecondLove status]], she was a beloved character, and the overwhelming majority of fans wanted her to be the endgame in Nick's romantic life, [[which she was, and according to the DistantFinale, was still with Nick 20 years later]].

** Although Jenna Coleman's performance was praised by most people, a fandom drained with ArcFatigue for Creator/StevenMoffat's LivingMacGuffin female characters found "Impossible Girl" Clara Oswald to be a "generic companion" FlatCharacter, dressed in a melodramatic mystery arc we'd already seen several times before in this era. Due to the nature of the arc she was introduced in (her first two appearances were as different characters who died helping the Doctor -- but implied to all be the same woman) as well as the main Smith-era arc still not having been resolved ''and'' the 50th anniversary special WhamEpisode being set up, she was stuck doing nothing or having her character reset to zero for most of Series 7B, and conflicting production instructions meant different writers interpreted her in very different ways. The nature of her relationship with the Doctor (who didn't trust her, but was sexually obsessed with her anyway) also meant he ended up acting like a creepy old man, but with this presented as a romantic ideal, and when her actions in the SeasonFinale and the follow-up specials easily made her one of the most powerful companions ''ever'', she garnered MarySue accusations. However, Series 8 completely overhauled her character, giving her a different job, a genuinely dramatic PartTimeHero plotline and a complicated, {{Hubris}}tic relationship with time travel, making her much more flawed, unique and interesting. The elements of her relationship with the Doctor that came across as unintentionally creepy were brought to the forefront and handled more deftly, without sacrificing the heartwarming qualities of their friendship; and the recasting of the Doctor with a much older man forced their relationship away from the standard 'two young hot people in love' idea towards something still romantic, but more complicated. This continued into the well-received Series 9, in which she became his DistaffCounterpart for better and for worse; although her ultimate fate ([[spoiler: she was Killed Off For Real, but due to the Doctor's mad attempt to rescue her she can have infinite adventures in the last moment of her life, complete with her own TARDIS and companion]]) caused a BrokenBase, it was a ''loooooong'' way from where she started as a character in more ways than one.
