According to Missy, "every miner need[ed] a canary." On Skaro, she used Clara Oswald as her "canary" to navigate the sewers beneath the Dalek City. (TV: The Witch's Familiar)

Behind the scenesEdit

As the Eleventh Doctor explained to Dermot O'Leary in Dermot and the Doctor, miners sometimes used to take canaries down into the mines to check that the air was breathable. As the Doctor's TARDIS attempted to get to the National Television Awards, the Doctor used Dermot as his canary.
