OH MY GOD WILL YOU JUST STOP WITH MOFFAT ?
I’m so tired of seeing posts about how he ruined the show, how he should stop.
Since I’m much happier with Moffat than RTD, I definitely agree. (And repetitive and mindless hate gets tedious after a while.)
Now, I get why people would be disappointed. Like, you know, I was disappointed with what RTD did to Torchwood. You know what I did when he changed something I liked into something I didn’t? I stopped watching.
I think fans have the right to complain about an issue they have with a tv show, whether it is the writing, the acting, the direction it’s heading in etc. However, I feel like people like to complain that Moffat is ruining Doctor Who while completely ignoring any issues RTD had with his run.
I’m certainly not saying Moffat’s perfect, and I’ve read many legitimate complaints about him. However, I feel like most of the stuff I read is just people saying he is ruining the show without considering that 1) he’s contributed some amazing things to the series (the Weeping Angels, Captain Jack Harkness, River Song, Lady Vastra and co. just to name a few) and 2) there are people out there who for the most part actually DO enjoy how the series is going.
Now after the latest episode I don’t know where he’s going with the series or if I’ll enjoy it. But I’m certainly going to go into it with an open mind instead of preemptively claiming that it will be awful.
