Sorry, but I just had to post this. It was too cute to ignore. Yahoo posted this article about the finale and had this to say...
Prompt: Clara has to talk the Doctor out of being Cybermann’d, like he did with Craig.

ALL THE FREAKIN’ FEELS FROM THE DOCTOR WHO FINALE.
I’m still processing but bloody hell that was amazing (even though the ending was kinda WTF-ery?!) but I’m choosing to ignore that and concentrate on all the beautiful Whouffle, and on the brilliantly brave and selfless Clara, and the oh-so-very talented Matt Smith (who just blows my mind with his talent, every damn week) and did I mention Whouffle?! Because (I can’t believe I’m saying this) but they have definitely eclipsed Ten/Rose as my OTP! They are just PERFECT. The Doctor said it himself, Clara is perfect for him, in every way. She literally died a thousand times over to save him, and he never had any idea until now. She jumped into his timeline knowing full well the sacrifice she was making and she didn’t even think about it twice. And then he was all “Nuh uh, not happening, Clara Oswald, you are not dying again. Not for me. Not ever!” and bloody jumps in after her!
It is a love story. An epic love story. In a way that I’d never ever thought Doctor Who would ever contemplate writing. I know lots of people tried to deny it, flat out refused to see it, but this has probably been the most blatantly romantic series since series 2 with Ten/Rose.
I cannot wait to see where Moffat takes these two next!
Also, just to weigh in with my Eleven/River thoughts. I’ll admit I never shipped them. I think shipping is akin to beauty being in the eye of the beholder. You either see and feel an OTP or you don’t. And I just didn’t with Eleven/River. Not that I actively disliked them, they just didn’t make me drown in my feels. But I definitely accept that she has played a huge part in Eleven’s life and he loved her. There’s no doubt about that. So I’m really happy they shared that gorgeous scene together and River got the farewell she deserved.
But just Whouffle! I can’t with those two. I can completely see what Moffat meant when he said those two were utterly DEVOTED to each other. Wow, did he mean it, or what! Smitten, devoted, any way you put it, in love. So in love.
I don’t think I can wait for November. Help.
