saturday is my new favourite day of the week
No worries, Nonny, it’s not a rude question.
Basically, I’m tired of them. They’re supposed to be these great friends of the Doctor, supposed to know him oh-so-well, but, like with River Song, 99% of that friendship and character development happens off-screen and we’re expected to just automatically be attached to them.
I resent this kind of shoehorning, and I especially resent it from Steven Moffat, who does not care for character development, whose excuse for the lack thereof is “it happened offscreen lol now accept it and stop asking questions you pedantic imbeciles”
I don’t like that Strax died and was magically brought back to life, and then when it was questioned Moffat’s response was literally “don’t be pedantic”. . I don’t like the sense of superiority from Vastra and Jenny that they know the Doctor extra special well and nobody else knows him better.
Amy did this. River did it. Clara didn’t do it, but her extra-specialness was shoved down her throat with all the “born to save the Doctor” bullshit.
Basically, I’m tired of Moffat throwing characters in my face and telling me that they’re more important than any characters that came before. Even if they were well-developed characters, it would still at the very best be tasteless, because it’s basically Moffat pissing on everything that came before him. As it is, it’s utterly infuriating, because these extra special babies have little to no development of their own, and I’m supposed to love them more than anyone who ever came before when in reality I would give half the follicles on my head just for half an episode with Martha Jones in it, because she. at least, feels real.
