you know what no i’m fucking angry about doctor who again
it used to be something so much bigger than itself. it lifted people up and inspired people to be better and even if it was kind of silly sometimes you really felt like you mattered just from watching it.
and now basically all it is is steven moffat’s sandbox and he’s brought in all his favorite action figures and he’s got the dashing heroes saving the sexy ladies and riding dinosaurs and at one point it sort of goes off into sherlock holmes or cowboys and there’s no real rhyme or reason to it
#YES THIS #i’m mad about moffat’s doctor who because i really really love doctor who and i don’t want it to be this #i want it to be the show that made you feel good about just being alive again #not just an excuse for him to scream about how he’s SO SMART SO SMART LOOK AT HIS GENIUS PLOT TWISTS NO ONE CAN FIGURE THEM OUT SMART!!!! #the episodes that everybody loves AREN’T big mystery stories that you have to try to figure out but stories about people and humanity and… #and the belief that optimism really can win #after he’s off the show no one’s gonna care about MYSTERIOUS LADY COMPANION 32 and how we found out why she was mysterious #they’re going to care about stories like vincent and the doctor or the doctor’s wife where the story’s about how people are so much bigge… #bigger on the inside or that sometimes the monsters win but that you still matter in the end #i’m mad about this not because i hate this show and want everyone to feel bad #but because i love this show and it used to mean SO MUCH to me and it’s turned into something cheap and pointless and i want it back like… #like it was #doctor who #this is and continues to be a steven moffat hate blogomoff
ALL OF THIS.
Because I want to watch a show that follows an amazing man through time and his character development and the development of his companions.
Ten said there’s no such thing as an ordinary human and somehow with Moffat… It just doesn’t seem to be as true. There’s nothing that emotionally moves me, there’s no relationship that just sucks me in and blows me away, like the doctor and Rose or the Doctor and Martha, or the Doctor and Donna.
It used to be something amazing and now it’s generic sci fi. IF I WANT GENERIC SCI FI I’LL WATCH STAR WARS.
The shot of Amy fading away in the graveyard is usually thought of as the last ever shot of Amy Pond in Doctor Who canon, but…really, this is the last shot of Amy Pond. Sure, all you can see is her hands, but it tells us quite a lot: look at her nails, for a start! Bright, flamboyant, maybe not entirely appropriate for the era but she’s wearing them anyway. She might have been an old woman at this point, an old woman with neon pink nails. I love that.
I think this is the note I’d rather her story ended on- not her crying and saying goodbye, but something that echoes all the way back to Series 5- Amy the storyteller. “I found you in words”, she said to the Doctor. I think she found herself in words too.
“Don’t play games with me. You just killed someone I liked!”
“Don’t play games with me. Don’t ever ever think you’re capable of that.”
#This is such a beautiful summation of the fundamental difference between these two #It’s the same line #the same feeling #but Ten wore his every emotion on his sleeve and had no problem whatsoever showing exactly how he was feeling #while Eleven #oh Eleven #He is so hurt so damaged and so careful with himself that even when he’s SEETHING and betrayed he hides it all away #and yet somehow even though he says this with perfect calmness and composure it’s still utterly terrifying #because you know what’s lurking underneath #that same ferocity he had before but this time being bottled up for fear of what it might do #and when it lets loose - basically run
When new Whovians watch Doctor Who, this episode will be a back-in-time one.
This is no longer the future.
This is so strange…
Holy shit that is strange!
