“What’s Wrong With Stephen Moffat?”
Rebloggable by request
can I also just point out that he got rid of two-part episodes because his son didn’t like the wait between the beginning and end of the story. Moffat is making the show to suit him and his family, which he has no right to do (likewise with the whole ‘naming the Doctor’ thing). He tries to cram too much content into a single episode, which makes it rushed and badly put together, and is basically destroying the quality of the show. He seems to obsessed with making it the biggest show in the world, and in doing so is alienating those who actually like a bit of substance to what they’re watching rather than having it simplistic and gimmicky.
This is basically everything I’ve been thinking, but didn’t know how to say. A+
This is incredibly depressing to read. And most of it is incredibly inaccurate, though I do agree with you on just a few points. Firstly though, the reason why I find it depressing is because you clearly are looking at the world in a ‘glass half empty’ kind of way, that is also clouded by a crap-load of prejudice…
It is important to point out that Moffat had a hell of a job following RTD’s act. The David Tennant era was just incredible; way too many feels for one to encounter and not be a changed person. Seriously though, Rose at the end of season two :’( and Donna! :’( :’(. An example of absolutely fantastic writing though. When an audience can fall in love with a person on screen, and feel what they feel.. Martha however, she is, I feel, under-appreciated. She was amazing. It’s not that she was ‘too good’ for the Doctor, it’s that she was someone who needed to be in his role: ‘a leader’. And there’s only room for one person like that in the Tardis. I really felt for her at the beginning of season three, when the Doctor was mourning over Rose. However Martha came out a better, stronger person after encountering the Doctor, as did everyone that met him. That’s what she needed. Okay, sorry, got sidetracked…
Back to Moffat. Series 5 and 6 were different; intense, confusing, in-depth, surprising, witty, annoying, frustrating, beautiful, and most of all, fantastic.I still find myself uncovering new things I didn’t understand or pick up last time. Series 7, just, wow. Asylum of the Daleks was.. wow. DInosaurs on a spaceship was a bit of a let down, this is one thing I agree with you on. It was simply too much. I enjoyed the characters, and the story (to an extent), and the role of Amy and Rory, but it all happened too fast. Though, it fell in line with the recurring theme of series 7 - that the Doctor cannot be alone: he KILLED a man. That is not the Doctor. Thinking back though, after I’ve just written this, the only thing I didn’t like about the ep was the feeling that too much was packed into one 45 minute episode. Moving on to where I agree with you again, on the riddance of double episodes. They were so good… Nothing important was left out! And they left you bidding for more, wondering, and the suspense was exciting. So fuck you for that Moffat.
That said, Moffats series are one big story arc. The episodes are clearly linked and they all build up to the big finale. The RTD era was more subtle. It depends was you like. I like them both - it’s Doctor Who for you. You get a taste of everything. That’s why we love the show!
However, in terms of Moffat, it is also why we don’t. He is seemingly limited on the lengths he will go to in the universe, the laws of time, the laws of society, and the laws of life. We cannot forget the second episode of series 5 though, with Amy, and Liz Ten, and the Spaceship and ‘the beast below’ (see what I did there? :P). There’s an ethical battle for you. With an epic outcome. Moffat will sometimes use the Doctor Who Universe to his advantage, but it seems there is so much more he could do if he didn’t limit himself to the likes of the ‘majority of the audience’ as he calls it. I did hear that he said he would write for the 99% of Doctor Who fans who like the special effects and witty excitement and not the 1% of ‘die-hard’ fans. Let’s be realistic here though. It’s more a 10/90% split respectively. Has he never been on Tumblr? That comment did annoy me.
Okay. River. People don’t like her. But I just cannot see the validity in your justification. What is so wrong about her? She’s a timelord. She is Amy and Rory’s kid. She is intelligent, open-minded, flirtatious, trusting, and most of all, naughty. Her story is just mind-blowing! Whenever she pops up, you know there’s going to be more to the story than meets the eye. Not just the excitement of the general story arc, but the excitement of her story arc. Where is she in her life? What does she know! The Doctor trusts her. The Doctor married her for Gods’ sake. She must be worth our appreciation.
Another thing mate. Moffat’s problem with bi-sexual people, or gay people, or black or white or asian people, or people who don’t like dogs, or t-shirts, or cereal bowls, or WHATEVER, has got NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS WRITING. Seriously buddy. Moffat is human too. Everyone makes mistakes.
The plot holes: Moffat loves them doesn’t he? Now, what is wrong with them: they can be misleading, taunting, and hence annoying to some. But they intend to keep you hooked. To stimulate discussion. To leave you hanging, and wondering, and remind you of why you love the show. They’re fun! And sometimes accidental. Which one’s do we acknowledge and which ones do we ignore? There’s the discussion, the wonder and the fun. It’s Doctor Who.
Yes, Moffat does leave many things unexplained. But if we knew everything about the show, then… that would just be too plain. That’s all that can really be said there.You gotta give it to the writers. The Doctor Who Universe can go anywhere… Again, we’re only human. We can’t explain everything in reality let alone in fantasy. That’s what makes it okay for things to go unexplained in the show. Or we just assume there is some explanation but we won’t understand it anyway. Chances are it’s maths. Quote time: “doesn’t anybody do recreational mathematics anymore?” Ah Ten..
“Pretty much every female character’s life revolves around the Doctor in Moffats writing”. Um. No. NO! Amy had Rory. and it wasn’t the Doctor her life revolved around - it was the crack in the wall if anything. The Doctor was there to fix it. It was consequence :P. Clara… I mean that goes unsaid… She doesn’t even live on-board the Tardis, she just goes out with him on Wednesdays! She has had three lives somehow, none of which have revolved around the Doctor as yet we know, they have just involved him somehow. All the revived series companions have had something to do with the Doctor by consequence. Rose, Bad Wolf. Martha, the Master, and also, she needed the Doctor to learn about herself. Donna, Doctor-Donna. Amy, crack in the wall, and River of course. Clara, don’t even know yet. River, by consequence of Amy and Rory, and the crazy woman who wanted the Doctor dead.
Lastly… who gives a fuck about how weeping angels reproduce? We don’t even know how the Doctor reproduces!!
To sum up: if you’re a Doctor Who fan, then be one. Love the show. See the best in it. Why see the worst? Acknowledge the worst, yes. But balance it with the best. After all, you can’t have good things without bad things!
THANK YOU. ((yes, FEELS from end of s3, loved s5and6, cause i started with those two, perhaps s7 is not too great, River is a time lord and that just justifies everything kinda and oh wells if not. if EVERY episode was great and plot-hole-free, then the somewhat smaller episodes would just appear sucky. uh, but there is STILL continuity—and amazing at that))
Oh man, the problems with this post.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOk. You who just said that Madame de Pompadour was just a sex provider, have no idea exactly how her story works. She had sex with the king of france, yes, probably a lot, but she was also known as one of the coldest women ever. She actually did the job of the king multiple times, making choices for all France, being in the constant company of diplomats. She was overral brilliant and stronger than many men and specially women at her time.
Thhough there are some thing I do not agree on, I think this is the most critic accurate description of Dr. Who
