@TheOncomingFish @MarlonJBonniciI agree with OncomingFish. His female characters are different. Sure, they have certain similar character traits, but if you asked someone who is not familiar with Who if Clara and River are written by the same writer, they'd say no. Or Sally Sparrow. They have different moral concepts, different relationships to male (and other female) characters and different dating habits.

I agree with everything you said. Actually, I think it's strange that it's Moffat of all people who gets criticised for writing sexist, anti-feminist stuff. If I had to name one writer who writes empowered female characters, then I'd say Moffat's heroines are a picture book example of strong woman.
I know, if I'm lucky someone will leave a reply to this comment referring to 'Coupling. But I haven't header about the writers behind 'Two and a Half Men' or 'How I Met You Mother' being accused of having committed similar offences. It's a show. Only because you create a character, it doesn't mean you agree with their opinion on a personal level. Otherwise, the guys behind Hannibal or Dexter would be in serious trouble.
Belongs to the best eps of Matt Smith's era IMHO.

@DontsovaMarfa Yes, one day someone will have to replace him.
Actually I'm shocked that a petition like that even exists. And that people are signing it. Who's eps are cinema worthy (do I need to point out that 'The Day of the Doctor' did great at the box office?). Not all of them, but thanks to Moffat we had an amazing anniversary episode.
Fortunately, the BBC is not dumb. Moffat is the best writer they have ATM, with Who and Sherlock being their most valuable products (going by figures). And that's all that matters to them. Seriously, do you think it's a coincidence the BBC offered Sherlock the prime-time slot on Christmas day, which is the most valuable time slot of the year? They wanted to air DW and Sherlock on the same day (feel free to imagine an internet meltdown, but that's not the BBC's problem). And Moffat has a say in both of them. The Beeb knows he is good, an a petition won't change a thing.

@ivegotkidneysDo you remember the quality the eps had when RTD was Who's showrunner? Since Moffat took over Who's finales have become less cringey and there haven't been any episodes which we agreed to hate as a community (unlike Love and Monster, Fear Her, 42). Besides, I think The Doctor's Day is among the most perfect Who eps of all time. Do you think RTD would have done a better job? Or anyone else?
My problem with people saying that Moffat should leave Who is that he's still the best option we have.
