“What’s Wrong With Stephen Moffat?”
Rebloggable by request
can I also just point out that he got rid of two-part episodes because his son didn’t like the wait between the beginning and end of the story. Moffat is making the show to suit him and his family, which he has no right to do (likewise with the whole ‘naming the Doctor’ thing). He tries to cram too much content into a single episode, which makes it rushed and badly put together, and is basically destroying the quality of the show. He seems to obsessed with making it the biggest show in the world, and in doing so is alienating those who actually like a bit of substance to what they’re watching rather than having it simplistic and gimmicky.
I agree almost entirely. I miss the RTD era a lot, If Moffat would move back into a 1 episode a series role, it would only help the show. I love the eleventh doctor that he created but more so for Matt Smiths performance over the writing of Moffat. Moffats episodes in the RTD era are exceptional but can be flawed of course. Some new blood would be refreshing, if only show runners could regenerate.Via
