yes thishow dare Vastra think this is about appearanceif someone you loved changed their personality overnightlooks or no lookswould they still be the same person you love?would what she loved in Eleven still be there?note that this isn’t Christmas Invasionshe’s missed 800 years and a regeneration in one daythis episode was about summoning up the courage to go lookingto try to find the Doctor she loves in who the Doctor is nowwe’ll see how that goes over the next month.

I don’t think Vastra actually thought it was about appearance. She was very much in control of the situation and knew exactly what to say to push Clara to look past the veil, to make her face the problem and her own feelings. It was a calculated decision to get Clara mad because when Clara gets mad she’s not in control and she can’t hide, not even from herself.

Clara got angry about Vastra’s supposed assumptions about who she was, and that’s what allowed her to no longer be that person. She didn’t gain insight into the Doctor, but rather into herself. She didn’t automatically start trusting the Doctor, and it took until the very end of the episode for her to choose to stay, but there is a visible change from this scene onwards where she is far more conscious of her thoughts and behaviour. And that’s what Vastra was after, and that’s what she achieved.
