because fear can bring us together
fear can bring you home
From the Doctor Who Annual 2015.
Moffat really needs to stop making the Doctor comment on Clara’s body and appearance. Not only is it sexist but it is also damaging!
- To little girls who would think that this is normal behaviour, that how they look is just a funny gag.
- The little boys who would imitate the Doctor.
- The women who watch this and are shocked to see what they experience everyday in life is on Doctor Who as well.
If you do not believe me read what karmaplus’s cousin said after watching an episode. Please note that karmaplus doesn’t want to discuss this any more.
I’ve started compiling a list of Twelve’s put-downs of Clara, which I’ll be updating as new episodes come out. (I included remarks about her being a control freak, not just her appearance.)
So far there are two episodes in which Twelve doesn’t insult Clara - Robots of Sherwood and Kill the Moon. And guess what? Those are the two that Moffat didn’t write or co-write.
moffat writing story arcs like
"Professor Yana was willing to die for the rest of humanity to be able to get to Utopia, John Smith died to allow the Doctor to defeat the Family and save the village. But in the end, once they become aware again of their true nature, they both reject humanity and mortality. The Master immediately sees his human self as a prison he’s finally free from; the Doctor fights nail and teeth to remain human, but once he becomes a Time Lord again, he doesn’t want to turn back either, even for the woman John Smith loved. As Joan says, in the end he was the braver of the two. If it’s human nature to cling to life, it certainly does seem to be in the nature of the Time Lords just as much, if not more so.
S2 introduced the ‘curse of the Time Lords’, being forced to watch those he loves age and die, and in The Lazarus Experiment Ten expressed an overwhelming tiredness of struggling and always losing everyone that matters. The ending of The Family of Blood complicates both these statements and puts the weariness of ‘watching everything turn to dust’ into perspective, because in the end for him life still is a choice, the choice Jack so desperately wants. And so is being a Time Lord. The Doctor’s tragedy isn’t that he can’t have an ordinary life, it’s the paradox that he can’t have it because it isn’t in his nature to want it enough to accept the consequences. (…)” [x]
