When Clara/Oswin was in the library… what exactly did she do there?
“Normally I am born to save the Doctor, but if River volunteers - oh well. Let’s let her put the ‘Ex’ before the ‘Wife’… Bitch.”

“Time Travel is the cornerstone of Doctor Who. It provides the show an edge over other television series’ which enables it to go anywhere and literally tell any story in any time period.”
Very interesting article, explains 7 different ways that time travel is utilized to tell stories in the show:
TYPE-01 – Leave things as you found them…more or less
TYPE-02 – This is an observation-only zone!
TYPE-03 – Don’t pick on recorded history!
TYPE-04 – The Back to the Future Rule
TYPE-05 – It’s a brand new timeline!
TYPE-06 – Predestined to be there!
TYPE-07 – Hanging yourself up by your bootstraps!
