This is the final straw! Moffat obviously doesn't care enough about the show. And if he does, then I can easily say that I do NOT like the way he writes neither characters nor adventures. Not. At. All.
I've said it before and I'll say it again; This should be a ANNIVERSARY! You should celebrate all 50 years, not just the last 9!
And you should celebrate everyone that made the show what it is today! An anniversary is NOT made to advertise, nor celebrate your ego!
I'm longing for the day when he has ruined the show to the point that even New Who fans will say "fuck it" and just stop watching. It'll happen some day, I know it.
I am a fan of the whole show, not just the rebooted, not just the classic, but the WHOLE show. From William Hartnell to Matt Smith.
And Moffat has to make everything so complicated. All his episodes are full of plot twists, unexpected turns, and hints that won't come into play until several episodes later. He even went against his own words sometimes. For eks. in the episode when The 11th talkes to The Tardis (trapped inside a female body), she said she stole a Time Lord because she too wanted to see the universe when The Doctor says he choose her because the door to her Tardis were open. Then, in this season's last episode, it's suddenly Oswall that tells The 1st Doctor which Tardis to pick. Pluss, I'm getting tired of Moffat's need to make every companion love the doctor (with the exception of Donna and Oswall, but then again Oswall had the whole "I was born to save The Doctor stuff") and making every companion special. The Doctor chooses them because they're special and they end up doing some amazing stuff at the end, or suddenly becoming really important to the whole storyline. I miss the time when The Doctor choose him companions because he just liked humans, and enjoyed having them around for company. They could end up doing important and amazing stuff, and they would grow and learn from being with him, but there was never any "There's something different with you, you're not like the others. Come on, I have to find out what it is so you have to travel with me for a while", and there was never any, or much rearer, "But I love him" stuff whenever he got a new companion. His old companions were just like us, normal human beings that we, the watchers, could identify with, but now we have "the girl who waited, had a crush on him and tried to sleep with him, only to end up becoming his mother in law", "the girl who was born to save him" and "the girl who travels back in time, is his wife and his companion's daughter". It seems like he has this need to make every episode so big and important, just to show that he can, instead of doing it every now and then, and that way make it more impressive when it happens. That's why I love Tennant's Water on Mars episode, because we've seen him as the fun, happy person he is for a while, and then when he breaks under pressure and become possessed with saving the people whose death is a fixed moment in time, it becomes more intriguing, not even it happens all the time in every episode, then the excitement of seeing the darker side of The Doctor disappears. I just hope the 50 anniversary won't be to complicated and full of important/secret stuff that we get to learn more about much later.
Sorry for the rant But those are my feelings about the whole thing
The only time I remember not liking The 11th is in Oswald's first episode, where he just sits on top of a cloud and refuse to do anything to help anyone, and even when he finally does, it's the lizard alien woman who has to
Well at least we get a Classic Who villain. That's something right?
DO GET IT! It is amazing and provides such a great tribute to Classic Who. All 8 Doctors! Leela! Nyssa! Peri! Ace! Charley! And the Master! Plus the Limited Edition has two behind the scenes features, one for the story itself and another on Big Finish's work on Doctor Who, and there's a bonus Companion Chronicle for the First Doctor with Ian and Barbara.
And Nick Briggs' kid is in it. Nuff said.
I'm sincerely sorry if any of this comes off as rude. I promise that I'd never mean to be, and if you want I'll be out of here, never to bug you. I just wanted to put a bit of my feelings out there. Farewell.
And don't worry, you didn't come off as rude Actually you're a lot nicer than most fans I've talked too (especially crazy Rose-fans who want me dead for disliking Rose).
I kinda wish at least that some more of the New Series Companions could have appeared - I mean if UNIT is appearing surely Martha and Mickey would have made sense? I get why Donna might be tough but.. hm.
It does annoy me that all those people have stated their interest and he doesn't contact them, Heck, William Russell and Carole Ann Ford are appearing as cameo roles in An Adventure in Space and Time for the making of Doctor Who, so it's not too much of a stretch.
