Although there have been statements made by Steven Moffat, Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi that the relationship between the Doctor and Clara was "old-fashioned romantic" in nature, on screen this was left intentionally ambiguous. There were a number of moments in episodes such as "The Day of the Doctor", "The Time of the Doctor" and "Mummy on the Orient Express" could be described as "romantic" but the series never explicitly indicated that they were. The closest to on-screen evidence that the Doctor had "romantic" feelings towards Clara is in "Deep Breath" in which the Twelfth Doctor confessed that the Eleventh Doctor thought of himself as Clara's boyfriend and later, in "The Caretaker", the Doctor mistakenly thinks Clara's new boyfriend resembles his eleventh incarnation and also displays undisguised jealousy towards Danny Pink (who, in several episodes including "The Caretaker" and "In the Forest of the Night" unambiguously views the Doctor as a rival). The Doctor's later efforts to save Clara, stretching over billions of years ("Heaven Sent"; "Hell Bent"), are unambiguously depicted as the result of the Doctor loving Clara deeply, but whether "romance" in the traditional sense played any role is again left ambiguous and open to interpretation.
