He Who Moans: Doctor Who Review: The Radically Different Season 8

So, the scripts for the first five episodes of Doctor Who Season 8 have been leaked online. So I decided to read episode one and talk about how much darker and different Moffat’s made the show this season.

WARNING CONTAINS ABSOLUTELY NO SPOILERS BECAUSE I DIDN’T ACTUALLY READ IT

Please don’t post real spoilers in the comments, I don’t want to know and seriously don’t know why you’d want to go have a look anyway.

The haunting piece of music was the Gygas theme from Earthbound

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)

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.

He Who Moans: Doctor Who Editorial: My Problem with Clara

Trolling Moffat Month: Episode 4: The Plastic Replicant

The biggest issue that SEVERELY needs addressing in season 8 is a rather simple one: is Clara an Auton? Is that why she has no personality? Cause that’d be your get out of jail free card for the blandest most sloppily written companion character in the show’s history Moffat.
