Dr. Who Season 7, Episode 6 (The Bells of Saint John), the one where there's something malevolent in the Wifi: why did the bad guys give Clara hacker powers?
I get to watch Dr. Who in dribs and drabs, usually woefully out of date and out of order, which means there are usually details that I'm somewhat puzzled about. However, this time I did manage to watch the other two Clara Oswald episodes before I watched this one, so at least I knew why the Doctor was going on about governesses. However, I don't understand why the bad guys (and forgive me if they have a name: I missed it) decided it was a good idea to give Clara hacker abilities while they were downloading her. As far as I could tell, the downloaded people don't actually do anything, other than try to tell everyone that they don't know where they are. So what purpose would it serve to enhance their knowledge?
(I also don't quite get why they'd give her the enhancement first, before completing her download? Why incur the extra bandwidth, if you can call it that in this case? Or maybe that's not what happened, but then why did Clara have the abilities after the Doctor interrupted that first download?)
