Stuck between Angie and Artie, she looks distressed, wondering how she's going to get out of her own mistake but she's thinking about that photograph from Victorian London.

They went to Victorian Yorkshire.

That photograph's from Victorian London.

Artie and Angie talk about the Doctor's chin and how that makes him an alien and she can only think of that photograph, the differences between herself and it. That woman looks assured, the hair is different but it's her.


She went to Yorkshire. That photograph's from London.

What is going on?

The Doctor would know, she decides, but would he tell her? It's a secret and he thinks it fine to keep secrets --- everyone's got them --- but this secret has her face so that makes this her secret too, not just his.

Finally, she's aware Angie spoke; something about her dad and time travel and her … “Hang on,” she says and looks from Angie to Artie and back. “Are you blackmailing me​?”

Angie folds her arms, looks at Clara. “I could tell dad our nanny's a time traveller.”

Clara sighs.

And her eyes stray back to the photograph in front of her.

This makes sense. It almost comes across as a bit of curiosity rather than succumbing to blackmail. Because really, unless there's stuff about their parents we don't know, there's no way he'd believe them. Could be photoshopped; you're mistaken, etc...

But you never know: he might believe them!
