There’s so many myths perpetuated on Tumblr about Moffat it makes me think several things:
-Do you actually watch the show?
-Do half of you have confirmation bias or what?
-You definitely don’t read DWM. Pretty much ever.
The fandom is basically being poisoned by you lot. It’s ridiculous.
I agree. All these people need to lay off the poor guy. I’d like to see them write a better Doctor Who episode than Moffat.
I would write character who actually had, you know, character. And stories that didn’t have plotholes larger than our solar system. Like, you know, the fact that Skaro is in the first episode of series seven. Despite being in the time lock. Even if you were to go for the whole “There is more than one Skaro” argument, despite the Doctor stating it was the original Skaro. Which is impossible. If I were to put it in, I would either actually explain why it still existed, or at least have a character question how it was possible. Like the Doctor. Who was responsible for destroying it. And then apparently had no issue with it suddenly and unexplainable not being destroyed.
Oh, and when those things were pointed out, I wouldn’t cover them up with silly excuses that sell both the audience and the show short (I could dig up some twitter links to show you, if you want)
And I’d also cut out the unnecessary sexualisation of female characters (although this is problematic of any media, it is become especially apparent in Doctor Who recently. Perhaps it’s that confirmation bias. Still, I have things that I can see as problematic). I would also try re-introduce the idea of having themes because, you know, themes are important, and without them you kinda have a long, rambly thing that sticks to a couple of tropes and idioms. Moffat tried to do away with themes when he took over and you can tell, because it makes series 5 a lot more disjointed than the previous series
Listening to constructive criticisms, too, would be a good start for him. And admitting to himself that he’s not god of the entire universe
I’ve watched the show, OP. I’ve seen every episode at least twice, if not more. And there are problems with Moffat’s writing. I mean, no writer is perfect, but still.
Everyone has confirmation bias. As long as someone agrees with you, you’re going to disregard this. I’ll admit, when other people agree with me I do tent to react. Confirmation bias is almost entirely unavoidable, unless you are going out of your way to take note of it. People who dislike Moffat should pay attention to why people like him. Likewise, people who are giant Moffat fans should probably listen to the people who don’t like him. We can agree to disagree.
We also shouldn’t have to read DWM. Yea, it’s an add on to Doctor Who, but some people can’t afford it whenever it comes out/don’t have it available in their area. People who watch Doctor Who should be able to watch Doctor Who without having to read magazines and add ons. I love the magazines and add ons, but you don’t need them to be able to formulate an opinion on what’s actually happening in the show.
Also, I’ve recently read fanfictions recently that are as good, if not better, than what is currently on TV for Doctor Who. I have no doubt that half the people complaining about Moffat’s writing could currently write better episodes of Doctor Who.
Guys season nine of How I Met Your Mother is going to be the weekend before the wedding and the wedding.
And entire season of that weekend.
And they are going to show how each character individually meets the mom before Ted does.
I don’t know about you but I’m freaking excited.
