Can he please stop making comments about Clara’s appearance that are at best uncomfortably awkward and at worse outright insulting? Like, he’s supposed to be a genius par excellence, but when it comes to a woman’s appearance, he’s suddenly Strax?
FFS, Moffat. If you were trying to cut out the flirtation of earlier seasons, you could have just not written it in. You didn’t have to make him offensively oblivious to her appearance just to establish that their relationship was going to be platonic. Men can have platonic relationships with attractive women without being total assholes. I know it might be hard for you to understand, but there are men out there who see women as actual people.
You should try it sometime.
