OK, finally found something here (offical BBC site AFAICT): doctorwho.tv/whats-new/article/… (see number 4). You were pretty close it seems. ;) If you could edit that in I'll accept.

However, this still doesn't make any sense at all to me: If all the truth field enforced was that you uttered some truth rather than the actual correct answer to the question you're asked, then, when asked about the colour of the sky, you would still be able to answer "green" because that would be a correct answer to the question "what colour is grass?".... which would render the entire truth enforcement pretty pointless in my book. What Clara (probably) said had absolutely nothing to do with the question she got asked. Period.

Right, I've done the VLC test at 0.33x playspeed myself now. I still can't really make out the English original except for the "control freak" bit at the end. The German dub is slightly more clearly understandable as "Ich bin überdreht und verberg' 'nen Kontrolltick" and roughly translates to "I'm unhinged and I'm concealing a control fetish" so your interpretation is probably pretty close to the actual dialogue.

Well, as to the workings of the truth field there are a couple of other inconsistencies as well: It shouldn't have been possible for the Doctor to tell Barnable that he had a plan, just to tell Clara that he hasn't immediately afterwards. Either one had to have been a lie. Also, though not mentioned again in this episode, the original prophecy included the clause "nor fail to give answer" which would go against the numerous instances where someone simply said nothing instead of answering. Anyway, I'll try the VLC-slowdown myself once I'm back at my machine at home tonight.

Hmm, but as an answer to the question "what is your name?" that wouldn't be correct, would it? It might fit if the question was instead "who are you?" (or was it? I couldn't check right now)
