"I think that was the idea from the start, to do something that wasn’t really being done. So we have a companion who’s much older than normal – the think I always repeat in interviews like this is that if Alice was being played by a real-world actor, she’d be much older than Matt Smith and there’d automatically be a kind of mitigating of the Doctor’s authority. Alice is someone who won’t take any of the Doctor’s crap – and there is some crap occasionally from him, and I’m glad Clara in the new series isn’t taking it either." - Al Ewing

So, with the Doctor back to his old self, the monster is defeated:

This is why Eleven remains my favourite modern era Doctor, though Twelve is gradually coming closer.

It's because - much more than Ten - he comes off as a genuinely nice guy.

Does the Doctor remember what happened to the last chameleon he had on board? Er, Kamelion...? :)

Technically Kamelion was the FIRST shapeshifte, the last one would have been Forbisher the Penguin. :)

One thing that always impressed me about Eleven was just how effortlessly Matt Smith could project the fact he was old.... REALLY old. A common worry when he was cast was how could someone who was that young (and young looking... seriously he looked like an the worlds tallest teenager and at least 35% elbows) could manage to project any air of authority, "The Doctor", He doesn't even look like "The Med Student", and within about ten minutes you found yourself thinking; "Yup, he's several centuries old no question about it")

And a Doctor with an older looking assistant is usually fun; Evelyn Smythe and the wonderful Donna Noble spring to mind.
