" #but we didn’t fucking SEE anything!!! #it was like that fucking episode in season 5 or 6 where they go to the hotel and you never see what’s in the Doctor’s room #that was fucking bullshit and so was this episode #stop hinting at important experiences or ideas for potential character development and JUST SHOW IT PLEASE!!! ”
Er…we did see it. Just because the monster may or may not have existed doesn’t change that we learned what he was afraid of. He was afraid of the idea of the monster under his bed, as accidentally provoked by Clara when he was a child. This lead to the greater thematic conclusion that it’s okay to be scared of nothing.
As for what was in the room in series 6’s The God Complex, we eventually saw that in The Time of the Doctor.
And the whole point of the episode was “It doesn’t matter if it exists or not. You’re afraid of it. That’s ok. Just never let fear get the better of you.” That was literally what Clara was saying at the end of the episode.
Okay, so Clara was confetti across all space and time, right? What if that included the Clara we knew before she made the decision to save the Doctor? So when the Doctor saved her after she had saved him so many times….We literally had the first completely whole Clara after that.
So even a less whole Clara had the heart and compassion and selflessness to save the Doctor. We were only seeing glimpses of her wonderfulness.
And the Clara we see now with 12 is more of her own person because she is being allowed to be a whole person/ we don’t have a focus on 11’s POV as her as an ‘impossible girl.’
And if someone has already made this point…Yay great minds think alike?
I wonder if the reason Clara seems like more of a real person this season is because they’re not focusing on the mystery of “the impossible girl.” Eleven chose that title for her because that was HIS focus.

"let me uncover the silver in your dark hair
the weight of your bones
I want to witness the beauty of your repair
the shape you have grown…”
