you know what no i’m fucking angry about doctor who again
it used to be something so much bigger than itself. it lifted people up and inspired people to be better and even if it was kind of silly sometimes you really felt like you mattered just from watching it.
and now basically all it is is steven moffat’s sandbox and he’s brought in all his favorite action figures and he’s got the dashing heroes saving the sexy ladies and riding dinosaurs and at one point it sort of goes off into sherlock holmes or cowboys and there’s no real rhyme or reason to it
#YES THIS #i’m mad about moffat’s doctor who because i really really love doctor who and i don’t want it to be this #i want it to be the show that made you feel good about just being alive again #not just an excuse for him to scream about how he’s SO SMART SO SMART LOOK AT HIS GENIUS PLOT TWISTS NO ONE CAN FIGURE THEM OUT SMART!!!! #the episodes that everybody loves AREN’T big mystery stories that you have to try to figure out but stories about people and humanity and… #and the belief that optimism really can win #after he’s off the show no one’s gonna care about MYSTERIOUS LADY COMPANION 32 and how we found out why she was mysterious #they’re going to care about stories like vincent and the doctor or the doctor’s wife where the story’s about how people are so much bigge… #bigger on the inside or that sometimes the monsters win but that you still matter in the end #i’m mad about this not because i hate this show and want everyone to feel bad #but because i love this show and it used to mean SO MUCH to me and it’s turned into something cheap and pointless and i want it back like… #like it was #doctor who #this is and continues to be a steven moffat hate blogomoff
