That password did strike me as being out of place. No one would come up with an acronym like that on the spot- it'd be something silly like "runny yellow custard beats apple risotto" (don't judge me I'm hungry). Likewise with the name "Oswin"... I don't think this necessarily implies that she's Dalek!Oswin, (because Oswin was also Victorian!Clara's middle name), but the fact that she came up with it herself during this episode does suggest that she has some sort of subconscious memory of her other lives. Clara being linked to/ a manifestation of the GI is looking like a good theory.

So elsewhere on the internet someone noticed Clara's aversion to the number 3, or better yet the number 23 or the sequence of a 2 followed by a 3. She types in the wifi password as ''rycbar124" (skipping 23) and in the list of her age in her travel book it goes from 22 to 24.

Her birthday on the tombstone at the end of The Snowmen is November 23, 1866, and the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary is on the 23rd of November.

 

Commence freaking out.

Ohhh, I did wonder about the episode name, and wondered why there was an odd close-up of the St John badge on the TARDIS.

Speaking of, Clara suddenly gaining "knowledge of computers in her head" by having her mind downloaded... nah, that didn't sit well with me. Just made for yet another companion that can mysteriously do everything. As if The Impossible Girl weren't mysterious enough already.

I think that was explained by the Sinister Wifi Company (did they have a name?) as part of a package they installed in her mind when they started downloading her. They wanted her to run servers so knowledge of computers was a necessity

Yeah, at this point it seems like Clara is linked to the GI somehow. I've heard the theory that she's essentially a lure for the Doctor, and that whenever she dies a new version is 'deployed', which would be kind of neat and creepy.

I had the best idea for an April fool's day prank that only came to me a few hours after 12:00pm on April 1st. Darn.

 

I was going to make a webcam video of myself saying "help me... I don't know where I am...", leave it running on loop on my technologically-inept mother's computer, then leave the house. 

 

*Sigh*...oh well...

 

On the semi-bright side, our phone line got disconnected for a few days, so at least I got to walk around the house telling everyone I couldn't find the Internet.

 

... I pity my family sometimes...

Hahahaha; that would've been an awesome prank. xD Bonus points if, provided that got pulled off, that you decided to play a trick and change the background so that a 'wi-fi' search box was up there, with the 'access points' that were in the episode itself. That would've been amazing to witness, to be honest. xD Provided they had seen the episode. =PHah, nice. =P Did you reference the password thing at all?

Change the wallpaper? Oh, that's brilliant. I was trying to figure out how to make a fake window appear (was mentally writing an unnecessarily complex executable to recreate her desktop). But that would be just perfect...

No, that thing was definitely looking more like a planet. I don't think stars usually have rings of asteroids like that.

@Blade- That does appear to be the case, but if it only took a copy of the memories, it wouldn't be considered a parasite/monster/soul-eater- it could maintain a peaceful symbiotic relationship with the rings' inhabitants without hurting anyone.

 

Speaking of which...

While we're talking about "...looks like this... reminds me of that," I'm pretty sure the opening sequence was inspired by Up- especially with Clara's mum being named Ellie. Headcanon says her dad's name is Carl.

it was a gas giant planet. Although, the asteroids making up the rings could still be thrown seriously out of whack if the planet holding them in place suddenly vanished. 

 

That's the thing about The Doctor. He saves the day, but he always leaves a big mess for somebody else to clean up afterwards.

But WHY would it give itself a face? It doesn't need eyes to see, or a mouth to convey emotion. It just needs to reach out with its dust-tentacles and grab people/memories.

Same reason the Great Intelligence now has a face- it's been absorbing the memories of humans (well, humanish aliens) for a long time, and, well, you are what you eat. It may not be conscious of it, but it's inherited a few traits from the creatures it feeds on, and therefore has a tendency to anthropomorphosize itself to a certain extent.
