Ellie Oswald (née Rowenwood) (11 September 1960 - 5 March 2005) was the mother of Clara Oswald and the wife of Dave Oswald. She frequently exclaimed 'Oh my stars!', a phrase that carried on to her daughter.
At least twice she met the Eleventh Doctor when taking Clara to the park. The first time she met him, although the second time for him, the Doctor was hit by the ball while they were playing football. The second time, the Doctor's first, Clara was talking to him on the swings and she told her off for speaking to strangers. (WC: The Bells of Saint John: A Prequel, TV: The Rings of Akhaten)
Ellie died at 44 years old on 5 March 2005. As Clara and Dave mourned her loss at her grave site, the Doctor quietly observed them. He did not interrupt their visit, staying hidden behind an old tree. He, too, was saddened to see Ellie die, and came to pay his own respects to her. The Doctor also seemed concerned about how his future companion would deal with the grief of losing her mother. (TV: The Rings of Akhaten)
