Steven Moffat Doesn’t Understand Grief, and It’s Killing Doctor Who
There’s a popular joke I’ve seen floating around on Tumblr for a while now. It goes like this:
Well worth the read.
OMG, click and read. This has bothered me about Moffat for ages and I could never tell WHAT exactly it was until I read this. YES. THAT’S EXACTLY IT. THANK YOU.
edit: BUT just real quick, it DOES have big ol’ spoilers for the 50th if you haven’t seen it yet

At C2E2 last April, my friends and I collaborated to make one of our dream cosplay groups a reality: a full group of genderbent Doctors! Doctor Who is a series that is close to all of our hearts, and naturally, we got to thinking of how the show would be different if the Doctor was a woman. We all picked our favorite Doctor and came up with a genderbent interpretation - it was so incredible to see everything come together!
I have to give a shoutout to these amazing ladies. All of them are so passionate about costuming and fandom, and they really put their hearts into making this group happen. I felt so honored being able to spend the day surrounded by my closest friends, celebrating a series that has done so much for science fiction and geek culture as a whole.
Not to mention being dressed as female Doctors felt so empowering. We had several people come up to us on the convention floor and tell us how inspired they were to see a male cultural icon like the Doctor represented by a woman instead. And that, I think, is one of the highest compliments any cosplayer can receive; that a costume inspired and empowered someone else. It was hugely flattering to hear and I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day.
This was, by far, one of the most amazing cosplay experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I love everyone in this TARDIS!
Since Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman have a decent age difference between them, it’s quite likely that Capaldi’s Doctor and Clara will develop a father/daughter relationship. If and when this happens, my friend came up with five words that Capaldi’s Doctor could say during a particularly dangerous adventure that would be absolutely heartbreaking.
"Stay in the TARDIS, Susan!"
Oh I wasn’t using my heart or anything
A REMINDER THAT DONNA IS THE BEST
Friendly reminder in one novel a character says ”flipping” a lot and The Doctor goes ”Yeah that’s the TARDIS’s swear filter”
Suddenly I like the word “flipping” very much.
"People fall out of the world sometimes but they always leave traces."
I like to imagine that in some part of the Doctor’s big impressive Time Lord brain, it always looks a little like this - always making connections, remembering all the good (and bad) times, people he loved and lost.
It’s interesting to see how many personality traits are similar in different regenerations of the Doctor. This proves that he is the same man (even though he doesn’t believe it himself).
People should spend four minutes of their time seeing this excellent edit!
I really, genuinely feel awful for all of the old Doctors now.
And the way Moffat explained it was soooo condescending:
“They’re all brilliant, they’re all terrific, but time has passed. I think it would be beyond the dignity of all those very fine actors to want to force themselves back into a costume from 20 or 30 years ago.” (SFX Magazine)
I saw Peter Davison speak yesterday at Hal Con, and his take on the issue was much the same. He said that he feels the 50th is celebrating the 50th Anniversary itself rather than 50 years of the program. He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole. Peter Davison said that he felt let down to be part of a group excluded from the anniversary despite his role in its history, which is really very sad.
He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole.
I know I’ve reblogged this before, but the added Davidson quote just makes me terribly sad. I got into who properly in the Eccleston years, but I’ve always been aware of it. It’s a huge part of the TV culture of the UK and the wider sci fi community. People who have no interest in the show now remember hiding behind the sofa when they saw the Daleks. And some people have been watching the show since the beginning and still love it now. The fiftieth should not be about one man and his ego. It should be about the fans, all the doctors, all the companions and all the stories that have been loved and lived. And we’re not going to get that.
Can people see now that’s it’s not just some people on tumblr who are upset about this? It’s the actual actors from the show you all claim to love, being shunted aside for Moffat’s wank fest.
Is is one of those episodes that was so important to the show. Not because it was major plot device but because it was an episode that, for the most part, was random yet hit every viewer right in the heart.
Why did no one remember her?
Does this episode show what humans are capable of or does this show a side of the doctor never witnessed before?
This episode absolutely is part of what I loved that Russell T. Davies did so well as writer and showrunner - the show was really interested in investigating humanity, both the best and the worst of it, and our potential for bridging the gap between human and alien, and our potential for destroying those bridges. I loved this episode, and I loved every minute of Davies’ Doctor’s hope, love and despair about humanity, because that is so how I feel about humans.
Fuck Moffat and his stupid fucking run of sexist boring bullshit. I want the show that loves humans.
I’m not saying Davies was perfect and that Moffat hasn’t had any moments of brightness, for sure, but I feel like Davies’s Doctors weren’t the focal point of the show, if that makes sense - the worlds and the problems they faced and the companions and the people they met were focal - the Doctor was vital and important and displayed, but not the egocentric focal point. Moffat…it’s been all about Doctor Doctor Doctor Doctor Doctor all the time, and that’s kind of contrary to the character of the Doctor as he exists in my mind.
i’m embroiled in a fight with my doctor who nemesis theoncominghope cuz i LOVE this ridiculous new rose tyler costume and she HATES it. i don’t know anything about Day of the Doctor (and i don’t want spoilers!!) but this costume is amazing for multiple totally valid reasons.
- billie piper is a goddess.
- POST-APOCALYPTIC STYLE
- bedsheet as skirt. fuck you.
- sensible warm shoes for running. lots of running in doctor who. poor martha had to wear heels all the time, presumably because freema agyeman is 5’2”.
- who the hell can wear tights for more than 3 hours without getting holes in them, anyway?
- awesome raggedy sweater that looks like a Demobaza original that would probably cost $300 IRL.
- black nail polish because Goth Lyfe.
- cool 2nd-knuckle finger rings cuz she’s a trendster.
- rose tyler makeup because rose tyler makeup is the best.
- ULTIMATE FERAL SWEATER GURL.
lol basic edition v.1
Welcome to the
hungerdw 50th celebration games! the last person standing without having caused considerable damage to themselves or others wins!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- An alcoholic drink (not too strong, children!)
- A very strong shot- i’d recommend Liquid Cocaine, The New York Way or something plainer, like After Five, Jager Bomb, Screaming Orgasm or a straight Tequila shot!
- Details on how to contact your nearest health service- top tip! if you don’t live in a country with a free health care policy, then make sure to have enough money to pay for your care needs!
- every time something/someone in a box appears, take a swig or your favourite alcoholic drink.
- wait! that box has a star in it? well then, place that drink to one side, and take a shot instead- the stronger the better!
- if applicable (see the bingo card for details) take two shots! or more! who cares, it’ll be depressing as fuck anyway!
i am going to do this
Just gonna leave this here.# i’m scared to find out how many things in this list are true # i still love the mythology of the show # but i don’t love how it’s going about telling stories lately # ugh
Yup. Stealing no-literally’s tags because truth.
I don’t think you understand how much I love it when people steal my tags, though. (Hint: the answer is “a lot.”) And on the note of stealing tags, I’m borrowing one of yours:
so I was at relay for life and guess what was just meandering around the track
it just kept going around the track yelling exterminate
I literally cannot think of anything more ironic than a Dalek participating in Relay for Life.
idk, maybe he just wants to exterminate cancer.
