As most Doctor Who fans already know, the TARDIS has a clear dislike of the new companion, Clara (Jenna Coleman). Steven Moffat drops a few intriguing hints as to why.

While responding to a reader question as to why in the Time Vortex the TARDIS wasn't taking a shine to the Impossible Girl in the recent issue (#472) of Doctor Who Magazine, Who showrunner Steven Moffat hinted that there would be further developments on that particularly intriguing situation and said:

“As the Type 40 bad girl made clear in The Doctor’s Wife, she doesn’t like him bringing home strays. The TARDIS, as we know, likes to fire her pet Time Lord at interesting moments in history and watch the fireworks. Anyone less mad than the Doctor might have noticed by now the TARDIS navigation always works perfectly when the crisis demands, but never when he fancies lunch, or tea and biscuits at the Eye of Orion.
“Now those pesky humans who keep following him home are usually content to stumble about, saying: “It’s bigger on the inside.” and remain sufficiently in awe of the Police Box magic never to question it. But clever, sceptical, hard-to-impress Clara might just cause trouble.”

Moffat then added, as a final tease: “It’s almost like it’s all building to something...Oh! What’s this I’m writing today?”

Do you think Moffat's explanation truly explains Sexy's the TARDIS's dislike of Clara? Or do you guys believe there's much more to it than that?
