“You feed on them! On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and sorrow! So, so… Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories… Because I have lived a long, long life and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the last great time war. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I’ve walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman! I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn! I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you’ll never understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on, take it! Take it all, baby!”
and i will always come and find you.
I hope it does tooo. I’m OK with the TARDIS not letting her in - there’s probably a key for a reason, though obviously it’s always open for the Doctor - I’m not sure if it let past companions in without a key. What’s really weird is that Clara knew that the TARDIS was conscious without being told.

It’s the little moments like these.
The Great Intelligence; also seen before in Classic Who.
Notice how it always takes a different form. In Classic Who it was ”a mass of tentacles and mouths” but took over other life forms too. In The Snowmen it’s snow and in the episode The Bells of Saint John it’s Wi-Fi (with an actual proper face this time). Also notice how in the last two episodes it took over kids, first Walter Simeon, who was just a little boy when the snow started talking to him. And second Miss Kizlet, who still had the mind of a little girl when the Great Intelligence let her go.
