Like, seriously. I don't think I've been this "Aaaaaw"-y about a Doctor/Companion set up since... I don't know! Tom and Lis Sladen!
I just really can't wait to see their chemistry together over the course of these 8 episodes. It was fantastic in Asylum of the Daleks, and they weren't even in the same room as each other, it was even better in The Snowmen... I can't wait. The Doctor and Clara, next stop: Everywhere!
I think Entertainment Weekly's other Who cover might have found a way to have an even more adorable Doctor/Companion combo though. What if Jenna-Louise Coleman was... a Cyberman?
Much better. Awww yiss, look at that gleaming silver beauty. Marvelous! Come on, who wouldn't want the TV show to pull a Kroton the Cyberman? I'd totally be down for a series of adventures with Eleven and his Cyberpal!
