I haven’t seen this week’s episode of Doctor Who yet but every time I read the title my brain starts playing this song and I’m like yessssssssssss
does anyone else remember that time that the TARDIS was brought to a specific time and place to explode and end the universe by some extremely powerful someone and the season ended all asking BUT WHO DID IT AND WHY
and like has that whole “final question” thing been dropped altogether or what, because no one’s mentioning it any more but like it still hasn’t been asked (I mean, except by every single human whose ever met the Doctor, but whatever)
do you think Steven Moffat will also end this season on a big dun Dun DUNNN moment that is never brought up again too I’m just wondering
I don’t know if I’m a bad Whovian or what, but I am really getting tired of the show.
Or, more accurately, I’m getting tired of Moffat and Moffat’s Eleven. I have the most recent few episodes on my DVR and I just can’t bring myself to watch them because it takes so much damn energy to get invested in it anymore. The plots are always ridiculously complicated and badly resolved, and there’s always something or other in any given episode that pisses me off.
Maybe once Moffat leaves I can start caring again. I dunno. I’ve just been thinking about this a lot lately because I’ve been making my mom watch the whole NuWho series from the beginning, and I have such a love affair with Nine it’s impossible not to make the comparison. They managed to do the monster-of-the-week thing while still having an overarching narrative that strung it all together without being needlessly convoluted. And without having every. last. detail in every episode tie into that narrative. They were okay with having standalone narratives.
Also, Nine just seems a lot more genuine than the Doctors who came after him.
Does anyone else feel this way? Can we go back to something a little simpler?
AGREED so hard. I was ranting with my roommate about this last night. Doctor Who is one of those shows, for me, that no matter how bad it gets I will keep watching, but good grief I am not invested at all in anything happening right now, and downright hated the last season.
Ugh, I am so finished with Moffat’s Doctor Who. He abandons character consistency and development for complicated (and often nonsensical) plot tangles that instead of being impressive are just irritating at this point.
ETA: Essentially what I’m saying here is: You don’t have to feel bad ever about walking away from a show or fandom. You are not obligated to consume any media for any reason. And you especially don’t have to feel bad if you want to walk away from Doctor Who because it’s not just you feeling this way, it’s a thing that lots of us are experiencing.
My dorky cats and the characters they were named for.
Congratulations, you are now caught up.
