Am getting tired of “The Private Life of Clara Oswald and her Eccentric Elderly Friend”, Moffat. It’s called Doctor Who for a reason and it survives on the Doctor. Making your very special (the most special of all) companion be the Deus Ex Machina behind the…
Pooh, sorry for not spending all episode on the titular character. We have a huge backlog of episodes to learn about him. Much less is known about Clara, so learning about her is fresher. I’m not saying every episode should be that Clara focused but the series can’t ride on just one character. Plus you did learn about the doctor’s origins in a big way. Which you also didn’t like. So when it wasn’t about the doctor you didn’t like it, but when it was about the doctor, this also wasn’t good? Hmmm. I liked it, strong episode. There should be a mix between silly episodes and more serious ones.
I think I’ve pretty plainly established that I haven’t liked the direction of the show under Moffat at all. The efforts to define more about the Doctor and his origins reek of self-importance and Moffat getting to be the one to put that stuff down, just like his pet character being the one to marry the Doctor, and the attitude toward female characters both in this show and in his other work like Sherlock speaks volumes. Moffat has also pushed the character into increasingly obnoxious ‘dark’ territory, something that’s continued from the Eleventh Doctor onward, and yet refuses to really deal with the subject properly or with any real weight or substance, turning the Doctor into a man who increasingly throws people into dangerous situations, absolves himself and then broods on the matter. Oh, and jokes about women, plus outright getting people killed, as of a couple of weeks back. So no, I DON’T like it when the show’s about the Doctor, and I DON’T like it when the show’s not about him, because there’s something fundamentally wrong with the show and has been for several years now, and that’s the showrunner, who showed massive promise as a writer, but was promoted to a position where he stinks.
I really don’t mean this as an inflammatory comment, but am curious.
Why do you watch new episodes then? The show is likely to be this way while Moffat is in charge, so why put yourself through it?
For Capaldi, largely, and the hope that things could get better. They’re quickly becoming dashed.
