“The Hybrid is me” was the cliffhanger we all got left with last Saturday.
We all started to speculate how it could be the Doctor.
But what if it’s not?
Someone got me to speculate on this because Moffat does like word play.
Remember, “the name of the Doctor” and many speculated (not me though) that that meant he was going to reveal the Doctor’s real name and it turned out be acting “in the name of the Doctor”.
Then you hear that Maisie Williams is supposed to be in the Finale and you go hmmm.
What is if “The Hybrid is Me” is literal, as in Me/Ashildr?
Trying to find someone who puts the Doctor on the back foot is hard, but worth doing. He’s a bluff-meister, a travelling showman masquerading as a great warrior. He’s not Gandalf in space; he’s a man who stole a time machine. So I like to find people who can cut through and by the end of this series Ashildr has completely figured him out and has him on the rack. She’s someone with enough perspective to say, “I know who you are and what you do. I know you’re amazing but I know you’re not superhuman.”
The idea was he first meets her as a young girl; he meets her again as someone formidable and gone off the rails; he meets her again in episode 10 and she’s very different; and by the end she’s way ahead of him. She’s much older than him and she can nail him and understand him.
She’s better than both combined.
