Chapter 556: Uncomfortably Familiar
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 500: Severe at dw100.

Summary: The Twelfth Doctor reminds Clara of someone from her childhood.

This new Doctor struck Clara as being strict and uncompromising. He reminded her uncomfortably of her old headmaster, back when she’d been a student.

She’d always been afraid of him, almost shaking in her shoes every time he’d appeared, looming over her which he always seemed to do whenever she was late for class or running an errand for a teacher. He had a reputation for handing out harsh punishments even for minor infractions of the rules. She’d come to dread his bushy-eyebrowed glare.

Now here were those eyebrows again; she wondered if she could ever warm to this man.
