“What’s Wrong With Stephen Moffat?”
Rebloggable by request
There are a handful of valid points in this list, but a large chunk of them are so wonderfully, embarrassingly wrong (or are, in actual fact, based on opinion or poor observation of what’s actually happening in an episode of the show). The so-called “Apple Problem” is arguably the stupidest complaint I’ve ever seen anyone make of any aspect of Moffat’s writing anywhere ever.
A child could pick this list apart.
I’m not a huge fan of Moffat, and I agree with some of the points this person is trying to make (i.e., his women are often…problematic…) but 90% of this is opinion presented as fast. The Doctor maybe liking apples is a huge plot hole? The idea that sci-fi requires a lot of explanation is also hilarious, especially when applied to a show like Dr. Who, where the explanations of any sort of advanced technology generally boil down to a lot of hand-waving a technobabble since they can’t just say “it’s magic.”
