He Who Moans: Doctor Who Review: Robot of Sherwood (and the Gatiss showrunner question)

Given Gatiss’ name keeps being mentioned in connection with the “who’s gonna succeed Moffat?” question, I found this mutated into a much longer video than I expected. Cause while I really like Mark Gatiss – and I liked this episode incidentally – I really, reeeeally don’t think he’s the right guy for this particular job.

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.

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
