She Said, He Said: Prequel to 'The Name of the Doctor'

"On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the eleventh, when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer, a Question will be asked, a question that must never, ever be answered."

It seems ages ago now that we first began to hear the words "Silence will fall." What silence? Who are The Silence? Why can I remember anything? Since then, we've had a change in companions, we haven't seen River Song in quite some time, and we've been faced with the departure of her parents Amy Pond and Rory Williams. And now, with Clara "the impossible girl" on board, all roads lead to Trenzalore.

In She Said, He Said, we are given two monologues by Clara and The Doctor. They mimic one another in tone and both reveal that there things that the speaker learns about the other when they go to Trenzalore. We've gone for the entirety of Series 7.2 without truly learning who Clara Oswald is and not only will we learn how she came to be in The Doctor's life, but we also have the potential for learning his greatest secret.

I don't really have any theories of Clara at the moment. I've tried not even to speculate because I want to be surprised with how Moffat has woven her into The Doctor's story. All I know is that with this episode, he is going to be crossing his own timeline, which could prove to be extremely dangerous.

Here are the teaser trailers for The Name of the Doctor!

 Clara was "born to save The Doctor"?!?! Saturday can't come fast enough!
