[32] Moffat stated that the introduction of a new companion made "the show feel different" and brought the story to "a new beginning" with a different person meeting the Doctor. [33] Smith said that Clara was different from her predecessor Amy, which allowed the audience to see a different side of the Doctor. [14] Coleman described her as resourceful and not intimidated, citing the reason for following the Doctor at the beginning as pursuing answers.
