This may come across as a bit rude (sorry), but I’m honestly so confused here. How is Doctor Who still popular? Specifically here on Tumblr?
Moffat is sexist, racist, homophobic, and literally pulls storylines out of his ass that make no sense what so ever (Hey, it all the things Tumblr usually hates!). He took once fairly well made, albeit flawed, characters and stories and completely twisted them to the point that I wouldn’t call it Doctor Who anymore. And don’t even bother on trying to give me the excuse “You can’t bring logic into Doctor Who.” Um, yeah I should be able to. Because despite being “wibbly wobbly timey wimey,” it is still a television show with a story (or at least it used to). IT NEEDS TO MAKE SOME KIND OF SENSE. Call me picky, but I think a series should have at least some reason and logic to it. That’s kind of what makes them compelling in my opinion. Actually, that’s not even really an opinion. Any and all stories should be held to that degree at the very least. I can’t even watch the show anymore, because I can’t force myself to watch something so poorly written. Again, call me picky.
Look, I’m not going to say Doctor Who was ever perfect. It wasn’t. Personally there were quite a few things that I was iffy about, or things that I wanted to be explained better, but it was never to the level that it is now. I was never a whovian, but I did used to enjoy the show and follow the episodes. Who knows maybe I could have been a whovian if things got better not worse. The way it is now though… I would need some really bright rose colored glasses to deem it watchable at this point.
IDK man. Do people still think Amy being a kissogram for that one episode is some kind of statement about feminist empowerment rather than just Moffat’s adolescent wish fulfilment? Because I heard that argument a LOT back at the start of season 5 when everyone had only good things to say about Steven Moffat and I’m still scratching my head about it (gosh, remember how excited people were for him to write the show?? Seems ridiculous now).
I honestly think Tumblr is waking up to the fact Moffat is a terrible head writer on both Doctor Who and Sherlock. I see more Moffat hate on my dash than I do praise of him - any praise of Doctor Who is about the show as a whole, not the writing of it. And as everyone knows liking the thing ≠ being oblivious/uncritical of its many, many flaws. I live in the hope that since we had a fantastic Doctor once, it could happen again. Also it can’t get any worse… can it?
More seriously, Doctor Who’s been around for 50 years, and arguably the shine RTD and Tennant left behind still hasn’t worn off. It’s one of the Beeb’s biggest brands, with a diverse, international fanbase that spans generations. Moffat’s era is just a road bump in the face of all that. I reckon he’s got another two seasons left in him, three tops. Then he’ll do the biggest, hugest, most epic finale episode ever and go out on a bang and make everyone cry
tears of joy.
I’m sure plenty of people have pointed this out already, but I’m watching Zankyou no Terror and I just can’t get over the fact that Nine and Twelve are basically really scary, terrorist versions of Rei and Nagisa.
"never apply logic to Doctor Wh-"
nO MOTHERFUCKER I WANT A CERTAIN SOMEONE TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS SHITTY WRITING AND FOR TURNING MY FAVORITE SHOW INTO AN ILLOGICAL MASS FILLED WITH “IMPOSSIBLE GIRLS” AND “BLOCKBUSTER PLOTS”
