Out of all the fellow Whovians I know, I think I'm the only one actually looking forward to Clara (Oswin). Her introduction into the WHO-Universe was both awesome and heart-wrenching, and that she's being brought back in as the Doctor's new companion is nothing short of Brilliant.
Will I miss Amy? Hell yes. Rory? Not so much. But Clara's going to make everything better. She almost seems like they took the best of Amy and the best of River and mashed them into one leading lady. Too Excited. I'd say this piece captures why perfectly.
