Clara… for what it’s worth, and it might not be worth much… when your whole life flashes in front of you, you see people you love and people missing you.

giraffe-i-be replied to your post: what’s with this “meeting love interes…

preach it sista. what’s wrong with moffat. he’s creepy.

yeah i mean it’s getting ridiculous we’ve had

1 reinette meets ten when she’s a child, she immediately snogs him next time she sees him

2 eleven meets amy as a child, she later tries to seduce him

3 eleven meets river song when she is a) a child b) FREAKIN IN UTERO and c) a baby (because nothing says romance like having practically NO MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE pass without your husband being there and influence your choices

4 eleven hangs around clara as a child, they have a romantic flirty thing going on later

5 eleven talks about “helping rose tyler with her homework” managing to retroactively creepify that relationship too

and now 5) clara meets danny pink when he’s a child and then gets into a romantic relationship with adult danny

and 6) clara meets the doctor as a child, who grows up to be eleven, who she has the flirty thing with

aka “Elitism is my middle name”

I like how Moffat would say that Reinette - a female character that he wrote into the show - is obviously a perfect match for the Doctor based on her level of ‘civilization’ and education.

As opposed to oh say…Rose Tyler - a lower-class girl who never went to university - whom the Doctor actually fell in love with and did settle down with in another universe.

This quote just has it all, doesn’t it?

- The elitism

- The dig at Rose Tyler and RTD, by extension

- The elevation of ‘his’ character at the expense of existing ones.

- The implication that Madame de Pompadour - one of the most powerful women in the country - would of course drop everything she had worked for to go and ‘settle down’ with a man who is basically a homeless spacehobo.

People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

Hah, excellent Moffat-criticism here. He is so petty, and so unequipped to write insightful sci-fi.

Like, okay, let’s pretend for a second that by “educated and civilised” he means “has a lot of knowledge and social insight” (which is a valid thing to look for in a romantic partner) rather than, you know, “rich, fancy and subservient” (which is what Moffat expects people to look for in a romantic partner).

… I really don’t think that an 18th century aristocrat has more understanding of science and society than a 21st person without A levels but with a working television. And in any case, if the Doctor was really looking for people who are Intellectual Equals, he’d surely look in the future, when people understand time travel, and have wikipedia installed in their brains, or whatever. Or AIs! I can’t imagine anyone more educated and ‘civilised’ than AI people!

Just, one thing I really loved about RTD’s Who arcs - which Moffat clearly didn’t understand at all - was that EVERYTHING the companions knew was useful - Harry Potter trivia! Game-show quickness! Fast typing! - and that the, like, real-world hierarchy of skills and marketability was always shown as less important than courage and compassion.



I’m imagining the real Madame de Pompadour and how very unimpressed she would be by Steven Moffat declaring his ~admiration for her, but


did this man just admit that he think the position of Companion is actually the Doctor’s maîtresse-en-titre?  Jesus wept.

That is exactly what this man thinks, and what he writes also. He thinks women are wired to ‘cling’ and men are wired to want to escape them, and the only way a relationship can be agreeable to both parties is if the woman accepts that they can only spend time together when the dude initiates it.

… Suddenly I am kinda surprised that Sherlock and Irene didn’t set up a long-distance relationship where she spends her days in an orientalist parody of a villa, waiting for Sherlock and passing the time taking luxurious bubble-baths and emotionlessly spanking female nobility.

Oh my god this is some sick shit— and really, really, really highlights how much Moffat doesn’t understand the fundamental heart of the show he’s fucking running. If the Doctor was so hot for intelligent, well educated, civilized women why the fuck did he ever leave his home planet? Why has he only ever had one Gallifreyan companion after he left his granddaughter to go her own way? Romana was foisted on him by the time lord ellimist, he didn’t go picking her out of a catalogue. 

The Doctor runs around with soldiers and schoolkids and teachers and sailors and students and journalists and shop girls and alien refugees and orphans and robot dogs and barbarians and private detective penguins and renegade archaeologists. If he wanted a slice of properly civilized girlfriend he had the whole universe to go pick one out from, and he never did till Moffat wrote him launching himself smooch-first at the lady in the fancy dress and historically inaccurate boobies.

Goddamn I am so mad. 

Oh my god. OH my GOD. If you even like moffat, just read this. WHAT A FUCKING ASS> I AM SO MAD

People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

when is moffat gonna stop trying to suck his own dick

He doesn’t have the first idea of who the Doctor is. He sees him as a pretentious spoiled aristocrat, exactly the kind of jerky insufferable time lords the Doctor actually despises, and ran from.

Pre-Moffat Things That Moffat Didn’t Like And Changed (Even Though It Doesn’t Make Sense)


  • The destruction of Gallifrey (which makes Nine and Ten’s stories not make much sense, which made Moffat thrown in a dumb explanation)
  • How the Doctor originally got the TARDIS (no Clara did not tell him to take it), and whatever else happened in that one episode
  • He married the Doctor off, because he really needed to do that, although soon after that he was with Clara nad flirting with her all the time, since River died long before the wedding
  • Misogyny-free episodes don’t happen anymore
  • Healthy relationships between Doctor and companion don’t exist
  • Everything in the Doctor’s past is now thanks to Clara
  • The Doctor’s ending his regeneration cycle? Lol nope, the Time Lords (that are no longer all dead thanks to Moffat) just added more regenerations into him…somehow, no explanation given
  • People other than the Doctor are now just plot devices, particularly in series 7 onwards
  • Christopher Eccleston isn’t the Ninth Doctor, what are you talking about. John Hurt is the ninth.
  • Eleven is the last regeneration because I want him to be, even though we’ve previously seen him having regeneration abilities (remember that Moffat was showrunner for all of the Eleven era, so he’s even contradicting himself).

I might add to this post as new things come up (or I think of more), only if I remember to edit it though.
