I love the Doctor but lbr he's not even top ten fictional dudes. AMY AND ROSE ARE LIKE INTEGRAL TO MY HEART AND SOUL. Also Marthaaaaaaaaaaa. Also Donna is perf.

all of them are goddamn amazing precious gifts to the world and i cannot tolerate watching dw crap on the dynamic that made it a good show in the first place. give me real, multidimensional, flawed companions who operate like real people and not sexy robots and are worldsaving lifechanging HUMANS or GIVE ME DEATH i s2g

SAME x999999999 especially the tags ;_;

dw used to inspire me so much as a writer and as a woman. It was about girls having adventures and growing and fucking up and saving lives and the doctor this 900 year old superhero being amazed by them.

Now it’s toxic and oozes sexism. I haven’t seen the new episodes but just the gifs of how clara is being treated makes me sick. 

see i thought that the episode was sort of a culmination of everything moffat is turning to shit about the show. he's trying to use this "formula" that he somehow extracted out of new who, but what he doesnt realize is that the formula he's using is stupid and wrong and broken so he gets an F on his math test and he's like "why the hell did I get an F in math" and IT'S BECAUSE HE SHOULDN'T BE WRITING DOCTOR WHO THAT'S WHY YOU GOT AN F STEVEN MOFFAT BECAUSE YOU SHOULDN'T BE WRITING THIS SHOW

I can’t even add commentary to this it’s too good and too accurate

SHOUTING BECAUSE “FORMULAIC” IS A WORD THAT DESCRIBES MANY THINGS THAT ARE WRONG WITH THIS SHOW made infinitely worse by the fact that the formula is sexist and gross and unfunny and we still have capaldi saying matt smith lines seriously the personalities to me read the exact same way except 12 is MEANER than 11? how the hell is this progression? but yes A+ ask you go anon

#1 reason I am disappointed in doctor who right now:

  1. not being empathetic to others is NOT CUTE (didn’t i already rant about this last week) IT IS NOT UR CUE TO INSERT LAUGH TRACK and it is most certainly not laudable stop stop stop stop how can you tell me the doctor is thousands of years old and that he DEEPLY cares about people but at the same time he doesn’t have the emotional maturity to respect people’s mental states when their loved ones have died? or to literally be sensitive to anyone in distress ever? especially to anyone who is afraid they are going to die because of danger he PUT THEM IN?? pls stop using this as a throwaway gag like HAHA so UNEXPECTED WHAT AN ALIEN no this is not my doctor i have higher standards for the doctor than this just sTOP

also you should not write dialogue just because you think it would make a cute sound byte/gif. hello i’m having deja vu IS THIS 2010 AM I WATCHING GOSSIP GIRL GO TO PIECES AGAIN everything is so jagged and there are so many non sequiturs and just……where is the DEVELOPMENT

radical-6:

ohhhhh my god watching the new doctor who episode and it sucks so much dick smh

moffat’s shitty writing shines through time after time?? everything clara says is dismissed because she’s a SILLY GIRL and of cooooourse the doctor is strong and independent and doesn’t care about anyone dying lmao the only time he cares about ANYONE is when he asks if clara is “in love” because she is smiling. yup moffat, women are only happy when they’re in love. you nailed it

while I was typing this someone told clara not to worry about catcalling because she was “built like a man”

The way I dress is really about the message I want to send out to the world about who I am. Growing up in Alabama, I was black. I was poor. I was assigned male at birth — that’s how I like to put it. These things defined me, but I’m not any of these things. Clothes were a way for me to announce to the world who I was. I am not any of these things. This is who I am." - Laverne Cox
