I do not love Steven Moffat, is that a problem?

I’m a whovian, I like everything Doctor Who related! Eleven is not my Doctor, is that a problem? So why do people get ticked off when I point out that I really don’t like Steven Moffat as a showrunner?!

I will explain: Steven has written some of the most amazing New Who stories, such as Blink or The Empty Child/ The Doctor Dances, but that’s just it: he’s an amazing writer… does that make him a good showrunner forDoctor Who? I honestly don’t like the series as much as I did the Russell T. Davis era. It’s not that Moffat’s story’s are more complicated and therefore harder to understand… is that sometimes there’s nothing to understand! I don’t like the whole “everything has to have a big important meaning!”.

The other day I was watching the series 5 finale and the Doctor told Amy why he chose her, because of her big empty house, and then I thought of how he chose Clara, his Impossible Girl, and I realized, I don’t like this Doctor. I liked the Doctor who picked up the best and only the best, and not because they were impossible or complicated, but because they were there and he liked them. That’s how Rose came to be, and Martha and even Donna. That’s how most of the companions worked in the classic series: they were there, they needed a ride, they were stuck on the TARDIS, and then they proved they were the best! Maybe this is why I never LOVED Amy… I did love Rory though, because he DESERVED to be there and I do not like Clara (I’m with the TARDIS on this one)!

And it’s not just the characters, it’s the stories… I think of how we met Clara’s family on the Christmas episode… It was dreadful! In the beginning of the New Who, we got the know the families quite well soon after the companion joined in, and it was great! I think Moffat overlooked some important stuff when he took over… I’m not even going to mention the fact that he brought the Time Lords back

Well, to which it’s own, I guess… I do hope Capaldi will bring a new life and light to the show and that they make something of Clara…
