the-cocky-bitch asked: I just read your latest post about Moffat and exploded. I still can't understand how Moffat and the fans think it's okay to say that the Doctor never would so he avoided killing his people and saved them. What about the other species he offed and didn't give a damn about?Forget the Daleks. What about all the innocent bystanders that the war affected? We KNOW that the war destroyed many planets and species(Gelth,Nestene). So he can't be alright after saving his people, he still committed genocide
Pffft, that was before Moffat, you know that stuff doesn’t really matter now!!
Honestly, I’m not sure that any of that was accounted for. Given the scenario in the 50th, the Time Lords and the Daleks were the only participants in the Time War, and everything centered on Gallifrey. The whole…battles across galaxies, whole worlds and star systems being obliterated in the crossfire seems to have been lost somewhere along the way.
ALSO, turns out, the Doctor didn’t actually fight, contrary to what the Doctor himself said in Doomsday. Yes, Time War Barbie was at the <voice of doom>Fall of Arcadia</voice of doom>, but all he really did was graffiti a wall. Moffat said the Doctor wouldn’t fight, he’d be on the edges, helping instead of fighting, avoiding the battles…so basically exactly the opposite of what Nine and Ten said he did.
I’m just so done with Moffat’s twisted up interpretation of the Doctor. Like, it’s one thing if you think that the Doctor’s all fantabulous and can do no wrong (even though he does wrong, like, all the time, but those are to bad people, so that’s alright), but to completely contradict previous character development in order to make it so, to rewrite something huge in order to make your Doctor the Doctor, the one you see fit…that’s how fanfiction works, but not television, I’m sorry.
