He Who Moans Doctor Who Editorial: The Myth of Steven Moffat’s Grand Plan

Trolling Moffat Month: Episode 9: The Bad Omens

The Moffat deconstruction month ends now. If you have been, thanks for sticking with me through some rather controversial issues, hope you’ve had fun and maybe learnt a thing or two (if you are clinging to the idea I actually have knowledge, if not that must have sounded incredibly big headed of me and I do apologise)

The final one is suitably about the idea put forward that Moffat is taking his time with crafting his vision of Doctor Who and the great flow chart from Russell’s style of Doctor Who to his style which I used to believe in but don’t now I’ve watched the whole of Matt Smith’s era. Its a rather downbeat and depressing ending so I’ll probably do something more upbeat and chirpy next week to balance it out (and I’ll stop with the double and triple length episodes, I’ll try and go back to bitesize chunks of bile from now on)

He Who Moans: Doctor Who Rant: Murray Gold’s score

Trolling Moffat Month: Episode 8: The Battle of Murray Gold

Lots of people dump on Murray Gold’s scores for Doctor Who. I’m not one of those people, I think he’s fine and at the very least bearable….but just this one bit of music got really REALLLY grating for me

Trolling Moffat Month Episode 6: Money is the root of all evil

This is probably the most hopelessly cynical He Who Moans I’ve ever made and yes I am making a lot of crass generalisations here and if you either happen to work in marketing or know someone who does I do apologise but I’m a jumped up bitter and spiteful man who you were probably going to heavily disagree with anyway.

Trolling Moffat Month: Episode 5: The Undermining of the Rani

INTERVIEWER: “Are you going to bring the Rani back?”

MOFFAT:”No because she wasn’t memorable enough”

ME: “…..then how did someone remember her in order to ask that question then?”

MOFFAT: Um…..look! Kittens!!

….yeah I’m making a lot of assumptions in this video but based on what he offers to the plate, its hard not to think this is his reasoning behind his decisions.
