The Doctor grieving over Amy and Rory was a huge plot point in The Snowmen. 

Damn, I'd forgotten that episode existed until now. Really, snowmen. Snowmen.

 

Can we discuss the line, "you were an excellent doctor. Goodness had nothing to do with it."

I'm rather confused by it and would love to hear all your thoughts.

Thx.

To echo what everyone else has already said, that's a great line. I see it as him acknowledging the fact that while he's good at what he does, and Clara was good at it, it's not necessarily good in itself. He does what has to be done, regardless of whether it's "good" or not.

Being a good person has nothing to do with being an excellent (twelfth) Doctor.

Basically Kay and Rosie have already explained it, but the Doctor saw himself for who he was this episode and it made him realise what the answer to 'tell me Clara, am I a good man?' is. It'll be interesting to see if/how he reacts to this, will he or Clara change in any way? These two are probably my favourite pairing along with 10 and Donna, though for very different reasons.
