A genuine surprise when the boy in the minefield said his name.</p> <p>And great, great interplay between Missy and Clara, especially.</p> <p>But if we assume, as we must, that the Magician is The Doctor and Missy is the Witch , does that make Clara both the Apprentice and the Familar? Or is Davros one of all of the above? It’s all very mysterious.</p> <p>And Dalek/Time Lord hybrids? This can’t end well.</p> <p>Wait, though: following on from <a href=”http://devilgate.org/blog/2015/10/28/died-and-lived/”>my previous</a>: The Doctor isn’t the Scarecrow: he’s the Wizard.
