|I don't know why they bother to give me this stuff if they don't want me to use it.

A macro I made to explain away something I didn't like about the plot in Hide. Portal fans should appreciate it.

The Doctor lies? :D
Seriously, that bothered me as well. I'd forgotten about it until now, but at the time I handwaved it in my head: the TARDIS actually only spent between four and ten seconds there; it just looked longer for dramatic purposes. But I have no idea if that was supposed to be the case. It seems an awfully big plot hole to not have some explanation.
Here's a thought, from a comment in the "squee post":
I think it's important that the Tardis did not get home again on it's own steam. It got back through the rift opened by the empath, which presumably means that it didn't have enough power to do it by itself.
That explanation I can deal with, seeing as I also thought it was quite cruel for Clara to force the woman to go through that again only to run off to the TARDIS without even waiting for her.
But this explanation works too. Maybe the Time Lords who built the TARDIS programmed it with a bunch of warnings to prevent it from getting them in dangerous situations, and she's slowly been un-learning them over the course of her time with the Doctor. (yay headcanon) :P
Maybe it meant regular universe-seconds instead of pocket universe-seconds?
My theory is the TARDIS created a Charged Vacuum Emboitment by block transfer computations and that Clara is Romanadvoratrelundar
I'm with you on two out of three there. :D
But! E-Space shouldn't have been affected by the Time War...
Very true indeed :) But a mere time lord isn't really capable of Block Transfer computations. CLARA IS OBVIOUSLY ADRIC.
Your logic is irrefutable.
The two names are even 60% anagrams...
Wow. I really like thinking of the TARDIS as Wheatley. Waaaay too much. Well done team.
