The Doctor has met Clara Oswin Oswald twice; once in the far future and once in Victorian England. In each instance he had a great adventure, as always, but he also lost her both times. Now he’s feeling a bit despondent after losing Ms. Oswald and he’s taking a bit of a breather on modern day Earth. While he sits on the seat of a swing set and ponders the mystery of the impossible girl he’s joined on the adjacent swing by a young girl whose inquisitiveness cheers him up a bit.
I think it’ll cheer you up, too.
While the ending wasn’t really surprising considering the show has already done something similar with Amy Pond, this time even the Doctor doesn’t know the person to whom he’s speaking. The subject of “the only mystery worth solving” was sitting right beside him on a park swing and he didn’t even realize it.
I’m sure it’ll come to him…eventually.
