Heroes and Hybrids.
What a lovely shot that was too; near the beginning of the episode as we watched The Doctor wipe his shoe on the grass and Clara leaned out of the open doors of The Tardis. The forest at night and the glimpse of the interior of The Doctor's home. Just Lovely. One of those quiet moments that makes one sigh. And smile.
More talk of hybrids too. A theme? Coming from a hybrid himself. Oh yes, do not discount the facts we learned about The Doctor in the television movie. That he is half human. Like it or not the discovery made by The Master is canon after all. Yet no one ever mentions it. As if a human heritage is something to be ashamed off.
Another theory off mine with regard to continuity came to nothing. I had thought the young Viking Ashildr would prove to be some human incarnation of The Master's daughter. An adopted child abandoned or seized by the Vikings in some earlier raid. Well if the Master/Missy would go to the trouble of hiding himself/herself at the very end of time why not hide the only person he/she felt kinship with some where in a dark age? I suppose the story of the girl who died has still to play out but I do not think this will now prove to be the case.
