inara serra and amelia pond in the hall of presidents on futurama!
(this got lost in our queue last week.)
And I want her companion to be a white man.
And everytime she comes to the rescue to help out distraught and endangered white people, she proclaims that “The Doctor is here,” and they all flock to her white male companion and he’s all dumbstruck and doesn’t know what the fuck to do.
The Doctor will just leave, having no time for their bullshit and they’ll all end up dying.
i want a female doctor but i don’t want moffat anywhere near a female doctor
u feel me
wouldn’t it be just the biggest plot twist in the world if the doctor regenerated into 12 and turned out looking like the master
there was never another timelord that survived the war, it’s always been just him and that drove him insane.
WAIT OH AND THAT’S WHEN THE SHOW FRICKIN’ ENDS BECAUSE THERE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE 12 REGENERATIONS SO THERE WOULD BE NO 13TH DOCTOR BECAUSE THE MASTER REFUSED TO REGENERATE FOR THE LAST TIME OH MY GOD
In all seriousness Idris Elba as the 12th Doctor would be a great casting choice because he’d kill it and we’d get to find out just exactly how many anglophiles are also gigantic racists
Moffat on not having any Classic Who Doctors on the 50th anniversary special. (X)
I’m not even that invested in DW, but now I’m mad for so many of its fans. I’m trying to liken it to what would happen if, say, he tried to pull this kind of shit with the Sherlock Holmes franchise and I just… I can’t imagine. It’s like the guy thinks everything that happened before his reign as show-runner didn’t count. I don’t understand how you make this kind of decision and still try to present yourself as someone who respects the history of the program you’re in charge of — the WHOLE history, not just the small corner of it you control. I know I whine a lot about Moffat but this kind of attitude is why I dislike the guy so much.
This is an anniversary of the entire show, not just the past ~8 years. This is a show spanning fifty years and he’s decided to focus on the most recent decade and few (cough most recently popular and therefore the most marketable cough) leading actors so as to not “look backwards” — this is a show about fucking time travel, it’s the most bullshit excuse to just do things your way and dismiss any criticism lobbed at you, I don’t.
I completely understand not wanting to cater to fans too much, because shows and writers that do this have a lot of problems in more ways than one, but I feel honestly with an anniversary, it should be different. An anniversary is about a good show and delivering to fans, a celebration. The fans are the reason this show even exists, why not cater to them just this one time, make them happy? Fans should walk away from a 50 year (FIFTY YEAR) anniversary feeling the full weight of the entire show, not just the 2005 reboot — it’s not a eight-year anniversary, come on. You can’t really get the full immensity of the weight of this show’s legacy with just two doctors. I know people are excited for Tennat to return, and I like Smith well enough myself, but… come on, two out of eleven and you want to call that a 50 year anniversary? I’m sure the actors will do just fine, but try a bit harder to pull your head out of your ass, Moffat, just try.
Doctor Who Cares? - A spinoff in which all is right with the ladies’ storylines and they take custody of the TARDIS every weekend to explore the universe together, defeating misogyny and laughing along the way
i really like matt smith’s doctor but i really don’t like moffat’s doctor who do u see what i mean
I thought it was time to give some thought to what the Doctor-assistant relationship is, what function the assistant has on the show, how Doctor Who distributes personal qualities by gender, and why I now hate this lovely show that I used to love.
“[in Moffat’s Who] the woman is not of interest for her character or her abilities, but for some fundamental mystery in her being. The mystery isn’t even a secret she’s keeping, something over which she has control - it’s something she does not know about, that the Doctor must puzzle out in his own mind. It’s not about her, it’s about what’s wrong with her. When Steven Moffat took over Doctor Who, women became a problem.”
I love this article.
“I think with RTD vs. Moffat, it’s like the difference between someone who has just never really thought about how sexist he is vs. someone who doesn’t give a fuck because he’s certain all women are like this. All of RTDs women are capable of saving the world, and often do, entirely on their own steam; its the in-between moments where he makes them excitable about weddings and how cute David Tennant is. For Moffat women, the weddings and attractive Doctor are the point; saving the universe is just a distraction.”
“Under Moffat’s watch the Doctor has morphed from an alien who loves humans and feels their pain and experiences love and desire and empathy to a stunted, child-like and extremely bloody irritating space-goon who flaps about like an injured moth when other people’s emotions are making him uncomfortable. And makes sexist jokes about how women are scary. And wants his married companions to sleep in bunk beds. And can save human lives but does not seem to understand human feelings. Who would travel with this man? He might be zany and charming and have nice boots, but he is fundamentally cold and unrelatable.”
