Anyone else find The Doctor’s Wife extremely overrated?

@geronimon  Finale for companions. These types of things alter people's judgements I think. They think of these moments like the emotional end of Angels rather than the entire episode.

@FallenNocturne  I agree with you. This type of thing happens all the time in Doctor Who and people say we aren't being imaginative enough. In my opinion these are real plotholes since they are literal paradoxes. Things like The TARDIS translating for people who never entered it aren't plotholes. 


A bit of imagination and things like that can be explained. The TARDIS was right next to them. It extended its telepathic circuits out. It's  a new feature that it didn't have before. Easy. Can be explained. The many paradoxes can't. 


The Doctor does say once that paradoxes iron them selves out in Hide. this is a nice line and we can use it to wipe away all the paradoxical time travel potholes. We arfe mrere mortals and cant understand how but we can just accept that somehow time itself irons out these paradoxes. 


The only issue with this is, on other occasions the Doctor clearly states how paradoxes can't happen. How certain points are fixed. How Rose's father had to die otherwise everyone would be consumed by Reapers. How River had to shoot him, how he couldn't go back and save his people, how he can never go back along his own timeline and change things. 


Time travel stories will always have plotholes and There are definitely more plotholes in New Who than classic based on the frequency of "timey wimey" type stories.

Ironically many of the plot holes listed here are guilty of the viewer not being imaginative enough to explain.



There are definitely more potholes that can't be explained based on the changing nature of how times works in the DWU. To be honest nearly EVERY time travel story has plotholes because on of the strongest ideas against the possibility of time travel being is paradoxes and how difficult it is to avoid them. Most of the potholes listed here can be easily written away with some imagination. Real world laws of time and paradoxes, not so much.






>>It’s not something that happens that you yourself can’t explain. That’s just you not being very imaginative. 



 

Even if we look at time in the DWU differently that real word time we still run into problems because the way time works changes constantly in the shows stories.

Haven't read yet but I agree. I think kids love him though so he'll stay. Shocked they haven't made a figure of him in Wave 2 and instead made 2 Daleks, Another 11th Doctor and another bloody Weeping Angel. I'd rather a Strax figure even though I think his character should be retired.

@Polyphase  But why should they be? Does that make it's sexist. All women aren't "girl next door" innocents.  If all his women where "take home to mum" characters, then that would be sexist. And I for one would take Clara home. Who wouldn't love Clara?



He writes women who don't fit to the "be a good girl and do what your told" archetype which is why they aren't "take home to mum" women, but also why they'e not generic "what a woman should be" sexist stereotypes.

Moffat is sexist and can't write females is just a bandwagon. People had no opinion on it and then somebody said it and made what seemed to be a fair argument so everyone joined in. He writes stronger female characters than some shows where The female is even the LEAD.
