    1. Thanks! I’m glad I make someone’s day haha 🙂

      Twelve and Clara’s relationship was definitely very complex and of a nature that defied definition, but I definitely see something romantic there, although it’s all under the surface and unspoken. Or maybe I’m just sentimental :p

      1. I think the Doctor does have attractions, and it’s only certain people that bring it out in him. I do not believe he is asexual, but rather, his attraction is specific because he is a TimeL-rd. It’s kind of like wondering why humans wouldn’t necessarily be attracted to little green Martians; we are still aliens, and we are “apes” compared to him. Therefore, sex is not a priority of his. He can still look (Clara’s skirt), but all healthy people do. You can be immensely attracted to a hot, but vapid person who lacks 2 brain cells to bump together; you may even have sex with them, but that doesn’t mean you’re in love with them. I think the Doctor picks companions who are strong and lovable (to him, if not the audience), but he’s not hyper sexual because the obvious differences. If he were to truly fall in love and have the sexual life, he would have to watch his lover die and live with that for thousands of years after that (think Ashilder and her children). Pain can last far longer than happiness.

      2. That’s a good point, about the Doctor maybe not being attracted to humans because, even though humans and Time Lords look the same, they’re completely alien species. I hadn’t considered that.

  1. Nice write-up. I seem to remember other comments from Matt Smith’s Doctor beyond the one you’ve mentioned about Clara’s skirt which would imply sexual attraction. Didn’t he let out “Yowza!” a few times at the sight of River? (Whilst the fourth Doctor, by contrast, once told someone that she was “a very beautiful woman, probably.”)

    1. Yeah, you’re right, I forgot about that. In The Angels Take Manhattan he said he chose River’s book because he liked the cover (with a picture of a scantily-clad River on it).
