I think I watched the Doctor Who bits of the BBC Christmas trailer for at least seven or eight times today.
At the beginning I thought that those few seconds were beyond cute (despite that Clara and the Doctor were obviously pretending to be a couple), and it was a massive trolling from the BBC to show them while everyone knew what happened after.
Then it occurred to me that something didn't make sense. It took me a few re-watchings to see the little spank, which I thought to be totally out of character from the Doctor's side (especially the 11th Doctor). I didn't understand at the beginning that he was trying to play the human boyfriend's part, and completely failing at it!
I couldn't but laugh at that, because this is what I would end up looking like in the same situation - trying to impress a boyfriend's family, or at least trying to pass as "human" in such an emotionally charged situation. Of course I know the do's and don'ts, but I couldn't guarantee the results even with the best intentions.
I wonder what will happen in that merry scene in the Christmas Special. I hope they will love the Doctor nonetheless - not only because I couldn't imagine somebody not loving the Doctor while "off duty", but also because I wish to be accepted and loved with all my Aspie quirks, in the same way.
