You make some great points. Personally, I do NOT understand the Moffat hate. He's an amazing show runner, and a hell of a writer.

Don't get me wrong, I liked RTD too. Between 2005 and his retirement I couldn't imagine anyone else running the show. In retrospect though, I find the RTD/Tennant era slightly... shallow. Moffat's Smith era was very personal. Almost intimate.

They were both excellent story tellers, and again I find myself unable to imagine anyone else running the show. But one thing I've learned over the years, the take-away we should all remember, in my opinion is that Doctor Who is the show that won't die. Doctors come and Doctors go. So do companions. And writers and recurring characters and show runners and every element changes.

But. It's STILL Doctor Who.

And Doctor Who is amazing.

I might get a lot of hate for this, but I was seriously underwhelmed by Andrew Scott in Sherlock. I think Gatiss was much closer to what Moriarty should be. I've never seen Scott in anything else, so maybe I just haven't seen him well rounded, but his Moriarty came off as two dimensional, completely unbelievable as a man of intellect, and way over the top. I will say however, he nailed otherworldly, and yes that I do mean as a compliment.

I was surprised to find out that Gatiss is arguably a better actor than a writer. Really hoping he becomes a villain at some point. And not just because I think he deserves more screen time, but because he'd be good at the role.

Wouldn't it be more likely a function of the chameleon circuit? Or the perception filter?

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  The only time I have ever been even a little afraid of the Daleks.
