"It was meant to be scary when I started writing it. I’m not sure that’s entirely how it ended up, though — I got a bit sidetracked on the way by odd things that turned up on the page. So there are scary bits. But then there’s… Oh, you’ll see.

It’s weird, writing companions. They are all SO different. But then, there are things that they have in common. I suppose they have to be smart and resourceful otherwise a) they probably wouldn’t have been companions in the first place or b) they would be very dead companions very quickly.

Clara’s really fun to write. (Amy was enormously fun to write. Rory, bless him, was also fun to write.) She seems able to keep up with the Doctor. I can imagine Amy — or Sarah Jane, or Rose, or Jamie or pick your companion of choice — doing all the things that I have Clara do in the episode I wrote: but I can’t imagine any of them saying the things she says, int he way that she says them, or dealing with things in the way that she deals."
