    • Unlike virtually every other story in the series’ history, in this one there may be no real problem to solve, no alien menace, no despotic dystopia.
    • This is what Moffat is digging into here: Because we see Danny at different points in his life, we see how he defines his adulthood in response to his childhood fear.
    • He’s reacted by becoming DOCTOR WHO, the larger-than-life hero who strides the cosmos laughing at fear. But this strategy has its limits too, as we see in the paranoia that’s overtaken him at the beginning of the episode.
    • Clara is willing to live with fear as an ongoing, low-level, simmering reality in her life.
    • “If you’re very wise and very strong, then fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly,” she says, near the end of an episode which proves that, deployed cleverly enough, Doctor Who can do anything. “Fear can make you kind.”
