Boy, this is deep. I didn't catch that at all, or rather didn't think it out. I'll have to let DH in on this. Thanks.

No, the boy in the orphanage was Danny. Remember when Clara gets back to the restaurant at the end of that episode and she says something about his name being "better than Rupert"...and he asks where she heard the name? It's because he changed his name to Danny after his "Dan the Soldier-Man" figure that he had as a child. Also why he became a soldier, to force himself into being brave.

However...I do think she must be pregnant with Danny's child because she meets Orson Pink, the astronaut in that same episode, and Danny was an orphan. So, the only way Orson would have that last name is if Clara had Danny's baby and gave him the last name Pink, which was subsequently passed down.

Yes that actor is married to David Tenant! AND her father is Peter Davison!

I'd like to see her character come back too!

Oh, Okay, I remember now. Thanks for the mind jog. Yeah, maybe down the road something will come about with that.

DH always thought they should have had Doctor met up with his daughter from that David T episode. She died and came back to life after Doctor left, she took off in a ship to travel.
I think she is really his wife, according to an interview on David Letterman. She was in The Doctor's Daughter in 2008 and played Jenny.

Remember when she met the boy in the orphanage whose last name was Pink, and he had a toy soldier as a family heirloom, and he said something about his grandmother being a time traveler...it made it seem like Danny Pink and Clara were his parents. Danny's dead now so the only way that kid can be his son is if she's already preggo. But we have to wait to see if that happens!

I remember Danny sent a boy through the portal for her to find his family, I think. I can't remember another kid. I've got such a bad memory at times. Geesh!

Before the Christmas episode, I thought maybe Clara was pregnant with Danny's baby....because the child she met in a previous episode...long story, remember that?

I thought maybe somehow Danny would get back or Claire was going to find a way to him, that was before seeing that she is staying. Do you think someday they'll bring Danny back? I always like a successful relationship. LOL
Or, maybe they want him out of the picture so she's single and able to continue the adventure.

I really liked it! I was surprised about Clara too. It was great to see Danny Pink back! Loved Nick Frost! Cute twist on the Santa mythology.

There's an actor from Coronation Street in it. The woman of colour in the station on the Christmas special plays Kristie on C Street.

I was surprised that Claire will be back. I'd heard so much that she was leaving.

So what did you think?
It was a bit of a slow burner for me. I wasn't sure at first. Then it picked up speed and got better and better.
The "dream in a dream" thing always seems like a bit of a gimmick to me. But it mostly worked.
Nick Frost was brilliant as Father Christmas.
