I loved what they have done with Oswin so far. She is still a mystery girl (No spoilers for those who have not caught up yet) but very smart and obviously beautiful.

Wasn't sure how they were going to go from Asylum of the Daleks to her introduction in the Christmas Special, but it REALLY makes me hungry for answers.

I'm not familiar with Romana 3. I'm almost afraid to look it up and see what might be.

Probably should have said that romana was a companion to the doctor. She was the second timelord companion, first being his grand daughter. Apparently, seeing i haven't watched it, she stayed in another dimension. They never said if she returned for the time war. But she regenerated in the show once. Some say souffle girl could be the third regen. Also she could be in human form and thats why she doesn't remember in the christmas special.
Also another theory is from the same era as romana. And that's that souffle girl is a piece of the key to time.

I had some spare time, so I did some Googling.

Someone on another forum came up with this:

Clara means bright; highly intelligent, illustrous, wisdom, God-fearing, extraordinary beauty

Oswin as a boy's name is of Old English origin, and it's meaning is "God's friend".

Oswald
as a boy's name is pronounced OZ-wald. It is of Old German origin, and it's meaning is "God's power".

As you can see, each name has a meaning related to God:

Clara: Fear
Oswin: Friend
Oswald: Power

i think Clara's a stretch, i can't find anything related to "god-fearing"

Yeah, it's the closest I found to anything though!

Well just seeing her makes me say, "God she is hot!"

Now to go back and watch some classic episodes from the 70's so I can find out more about this Romana. Well, after work anyway. Well, I have to redo the bathroom closet first. Ok, maybe after this season I'll get time. God I wish I had a TARDIS!

Yeah, Soufle girl's pretty hot, and seems pretty compelling so far, but she has one major flaw over Pond: she's not a red head. Aside from that though, there were enough hints dropped in the Christmas special (trying to avoid spoilers here) to at least tell us that many of us were asking some of the right questions after she showed up in the season premiere. But there were also new questions thrown at us at the same time, in pretty classic Who fashion. Can't wait to see how that all turns out.

I think thing I can deal with the brown hair:




And I think she may actually be a Pond....

What if she is a progeny of The Doctor's Granddaughter??

The possibilities are limitless.

Of course that would make the very passionate kiss she gave Doctor Smith a bit awkward...

Thanks for that. The wife and I have recorded the entire current season, but have been holding off on starting it. We tend to get hooked and end up unintentionally doing a marathon through whole seasons.
