I think a lot of the problems that the Doctor Who fandom has centres around the fact that, for the most part, we are divided into the Russel T. Davies and Steven Moffat camps, in terms of which Head Writer’s era we prefer. Now, I’m not saying that everyone who hates Moffat adores RTD, but for the most part, that is what I’ve noticed.
In this post, I’ll be looking at some of the common arguments I’ve found for bashing Moffat’s era and telling you exactly how they are wrong, fuck you, and how most of them can also be applied to RTD’s era (if you look). It’s time for Moffat-haters/RTD-worshippers to take off the Rose-coloured glasses (pun intended) and acknowledge that the arguments you’re making against Moffat were occurring long before he stepped up to the plate and took on the HW-ship.
If it’s a problem when Moffat (and team) is writing it, then how come it was okay when RTD (and team) did it?
