I will check it out! thank you!
i’m tagging them all with moff wank soooooo
but it seems to have died down
Yeah I mean she became a doctor or a professor or something in all that time sooooo
and yeah I love how alex and matt interact though i’m all about the sort of beatrice and benedick-type couples don’t even talk to me about beatrice and benedick because i will scream and cry
I try not to be a bitch, ya know. And I do thing he’s a great writer with a lot of things. He creates beautiful moments but he has no idea how to construct a season.
I understand that alex cannot be in every episode but all of her episodes are used to only service the doctor’s character development at the expence of her own.
I was going off of this timeline I realize it’s not just after but it is the next thing we know about her.
p.2: and remember there’s probably years for her between episodes. Other episodes: Angels Take Manhattan: the broken wrist was all about how the Doctor doesn’t like to see his loved ones aging/falling apart/coming to an end. She yelled at him for fixing it because regeneration energy is kind of important for his continued life, a piece of perspective she didn’t have as a young woman in Let’s Kill Hitler.
p3: Name of the Doctor: he ignores her because it hurts to admit what happened, and he expects her data ghost to dissipate eventually, which will be a final ending that he can’t bear to think about. The fact that he expects her to dissipate kind of negates Silence in the Library, but it’s been how many years since Moffat wrote that?
I understand all this. None of this convinces me that it’s not problematic. I know I wrote my list with out a lot of context and everything but these are all still problems???? Like sometimes the context makes them worse????? I really don’t understand the point of these messages, sorry. Also saying Moffat forgets his own writing isn’t really a point in his favor.
No prob. I hate finding hate in tags of things I like. That said I do not hate the episode. There are a lot of things to like about it bit that’s not what the question asked. I could point out problems with any episode moff /or/ rtd. It just so happens that this episode has /a lot/ of problems IMO. (I will answer the other three part question when I get home.
