I’m done watching doctor who because I’m done watching Clara be the doctor’s verbal punching bag
Moffat’s problem is that he thinks drama and witty lines are a substitute for character development.
"I can tell you ‘Dinosaurs on a Spaceship’ would have been unbearable if Solomon had randomly gone off on a tangent about how his daddy abandoned him and took all his mom’s stuff and that’s why he’s a space-pirate. "
and yet didn’t he did almost the same thing with that slave owner and his slave:
"There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands."
-Steven Moffat [x]
I just want to frame that and hang it on the wall of every Moffat apologist, so they can wake up and look at that every morning.
