those tags broke me a little inside 

#Molly Weasley turned Daleks into actual pepperpots, because, honestly, she doesn’t have time for their nonsense.

so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy

I really, genuinely feel awful for all of the old Doctors now. 


And the way Moffat explained it was soooo condescending:

“They’re all brilliant, they’re all terrific, but time has passed. I think it would be beyond the dignity of all those very fine actors to want to force themselves back into a costume from 20 or 30 years ago.” (SFX Magazine)

I saw Peter Davison speak yesterday at Hal Con, and his take on the issue was much the same. He said that he feels the 50th is celebrating the 50th Anniversary itself rather than 50 years of the program. He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole. Peter Davison said that he felt let down to be part of a group excluded from the anniversary despite his role in its history, which is really very sad. 

He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole.

I know I’ve reblogged this before, but the added Davidson quote just makes me terribly sad. I got into who properly in the Eccleston years, but I’ve always been aware of it. It’s a huge part of the TV culture of the UK and the wider sci fi community. People who have no interest in the show now remember hiding behind the sofa when they saw the Daleks. And some people have been watching the show since the beginning and still love it now. The fiftieth should not be about one man and his ego. It should be about the fans, all the doctors, all the companions and all the stories that have been loved and lived. And we’re not going to get that.

Can people see now that’s it’s not just some people on tumblr who are upset about this? It’s the actual actors from the show you all claim to love, being shunted aside for Moffat’s wank fest.

I really really can’t wait till Moffat gets shoved out. I just wish it had happened before the 50th anniversary, for these reasons. :/

Quote 8 Aug 20,219 notes

The issue is NOT that Moffat didn’t cast a woman (or a non-caucasian of either gender). It’s that the thought of casting one NEVER SEEMED TO ENTER INTO THE EQUATION. It’s as ludicrous to him that a woman would be the Doctor as a man would portray The Queen. Both represent a type of drag performance that might be amusing but certainly not authentic. And given that science fiction/fantasy is a place where “what if” and “why not” have their safest homes, it’s disheartening to see limitations put on a show that is, by its design, utter limitless […]

Had I not heard these rumblings before today’s special, Moffat’s comment about The Queen probably wouldn’t have raised an eyebrow. Had Moffat’s companions been strong, independent figures that weren’t ignorant of their own origins, Moffat’s comments would have gone unnoticed. Instead, his comments formed a triptych along with the other two elements that suggest a large, systemic problem that has absolutely no bearing on Capaldi’s capacity to play the Doctor but everything to do with Moffat’s ability to steer that ship.

Instead of focus on the new Doctor, maybe we should be focused on getting a new showrunner. The TARDIS can go anywhere in time and space. But Moffat seems stuck on the same patch of antiquated soil.

Sometimes you find an article that’s so incredible you just want to copy-paste the entire thing into a post and put giant flashing neon signs on it that scream:

This is one of those posts.Seriously, go read the whole thing.

(via whovianfeminism)

Yeah, there are about six different bits of this I want to copy out, but it would be the majority of the post. I’ll just say: If you’re still unsure about the basis of this unhappiness with Moffat’s Who, read this. And I’ll limit myself to just this one piece:

To be clear, as my colleague Linda Holmes noted on Twitter: “questioning exclusion” and “demanding entry” are two different things. Those that choose to believe that anger over casting choices today boil down to, “You only would have been happy with a woman,” are missing the point so badly that engaging with such an argument is pointless.

Go read this.

I like that Helen Mirren has been saying the next doctor should be a woman. I would like to go on record and say that the Queen should be played by a man.

reblogging forever cos he’s such a fucking pratt

this doesnt even make sense 

but it reveals what a sexist piece of shit moffat is. At the risk of stating the obvious

Queen is a gendered title

so Moffat thinks that the Dr is an inherently male character. There will never be a woman Dr with Moffat, and probably not a MoC either.

Link 31 May 418 notes Doctor Who's Girl-Women Weirdness»

The companion once again being some sort of cosmic mystery to be solved rather than an Everyman/Everywoman, to me seems to obviate the very thing that has made the show so welcoming. It’s distancing, not intimate.

In an early BBC promo teaser for the rebooted show, Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston stands in the doorway of the TARDIS, leans toward the camera, and intones in his fantastic, lots-of-planets-have-a-North accent, “D’you wanna coom wi’ me?” Endless possibilities, all access. No timey-wimeyness required.
