drive-by Doctor Who-ing  
Enjoyed the episode, thought it was really sweet in several spots, think Jenna-Louise/Clara is adorable, etc. (Really wanted her outfit in the last scene.) Heart melted when one of the children Clara was a nanny for was reading a book by "Amelia Williams." Am actually still ready to cry about it if I think too hard.

Edited to add news of an ebook of "Amelia's" book:

That actually sounds like the kind of children's book I would have loved when I was little! Also, I've seen one or two people mention how much they liked that the little boy in this episode was reading a book with a girl as the protagonist, and no one made a big deal about it, and he didn't react negatively at all when Clara told him he was going to cry a lot at the eleventh chapter (oh ha ha ha, Moffat, I see what you did there), and - yes, absolutely. I love that little detail.

And I like the fact that this is the third time that the Doctor has met Clara when she was wearing a red dress...was little Clara wearing one in the prequel?

Oh! Also, Jade Anouka had a small part! Admittedly I only know her from those Shakespeare Uncovered scenes of Twelfth Night at the Globe, but I was still very pleased to see her.

More later, perhaps.

". . . oh ha ha ha, Moffat, I see what you did there . . ." Yeah, that was a hoot!
