Bio not provided
Absolutely not. I think some people don't see/want to see further than the literal text and they lose the metaphor in the process. Although they are telling a story about Clara - she's the problem subject in question - there is a context below that at the same time continually comparises her with the Doctor in the good way. For instance, in the last scene of Flatline in which Clara doesn't understand why the Doctor can't call her 'good' it's no more than an introspective about how the Doc feels about himself and what kind or person he is - good or bad. That's not overwhelming, it's only playing with two planes and people unable to see one of them.

@arayej @geronimon fair point. but not knowing the nature of the creature i think all its possible. why would it want to kill a planet tho? what good a rock ball can offer when there is a thermonuclear factory just an AU away?
3 weeks ago on Poll: Lights On or Lights Off?
on. at least if it kills us we're gonna stop hecking up our planet
i think the doctor has the conceptual reason here. he can't take decisions for another species as if he has the right and the obligation to drive an entire foreign species. otherwise the situation implied he must take the role of god, so to avoid that he decided to not intervene and thats the most correct thing he could have done according with the laws of his species (for first time doc!).
Clara was also right in some way, but she was more talking about herself than for the humanity as a whole. i'm pretty sure many people wouldnt be agreed with her somewhere there down on the planet and had prefered to take the decision of blowing up a huge ass bug on their own. i understand her reaction tho. i mean she was in a very stressful situation for a prolonged amount of time. plus the way the doctor left her didnt contribute to pacify the pressure over her so the uproar was perfectly comprehensible.
but as i said, she wasnt talking in cold. as humans we are the majority are gonna give the reason to clara, but the global rational and completely logical reason goes for the doctor and we cant deny that.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Kill the Moon: Clara or the Doctor?
I've read this novel and all I can say is I couldn't hear Peter's voice in it. He uses many slags and makes things Smith would do (saving the teacher dude, for example) but Peter's Doctor would quickly dismiss, and because of that it was impossible for me to enjoy the story in a proper way. I was a bit disappointed because the last Goss stories were really good, although I can understand it seeing it's one of the first 12th Doctor novels and the characterization of the new Doctor wasn't completely detailed when the novel was written.

5 months, 2 weeks ago on An Opinion Divided: The Time of the Doctor
There were some things weren't quite well used, like the appareance of the Moment and their argument for saving Gallifrey. I think instead of Billie Piper, they could have perfectly cast Carole Ann Ford for the role, and instead of the children, Moffat could have mentioned also people like Leela or Romana, Drax, the Corsair, Innocet... Just to tie it more up with the Classic Who and the Expanded Universe fandom (I understand no everybody like Lungbarrow's Gallifrey, although it's a mistery for me to comprehend the reasons why this novel gets so much hate, it has many fresh ideas and it's very original in my opinion). Also he hated that planet and all with gloves in their hands inside pretty much, so it's a bit a weak reason for no using the Moment (not very moral, I have to admit), but it could have been worse.
However, he seems to have taken an massive amount of care, and his script was not a piece of trash but a good story with argument and nice winks. I suppose it helped to have that crew, and John Hurt is a godfricking loaf of bread so I'm not complaining.

@TheCapaldiMasterplan @geronimon seeing that there only was one writer every two episodes and only one new writer every seven ones in the last season, not even talking about that interview where moffat claimed to let the scripts only to his friends, is enough to say that there isn't any effort to improve this conduct

what this show needs is a decent variety of writers and not a bunch of moffat's friends taking up more scripts than they can manage
@Galax @ShaneMcEntee @geronimon I enjoyed some pretty moments from the story but as a whole it lacked almost completely of a decently developed plot. I think that's the first priority at the time of rating the episode idk
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Best of Matt Smith: Results (19-13)
@ShaneMcEntee @geronimon I know that's annoying. God Complex is a strongly well developed episode, it's very original, frightening, and gets the watcher into the story. It clearly deserves a place in top 10 but people don't appreciate it.
@MrRazza God Complex and Amy's Choice are masterpieces man i'm so sad they didn't reach the top 10
how the angels take Manhattan can be over the god complex is far from the understanding

I love Matt, and I love how he portraits his role as the Doctor, and that's why I think this episode doesn't make justice to these three years of character development. The eleventh Doctor is degraded into a simple plain character, used to make nfsw jokes that aren't funny at all. Along with Clara, both are victims of a major character degeneration that hasn't ever seen in all Doctor Who history (to be 1963, Doctor Who carried strong feminist values in comparison with other shows of its time).
The plot is barely clear, just a bunch of scenes and a pretty quotes that don't save the story at the end. The plot devices as the crack in the wall, the Christmas town or the truth field are not very well used: The crack seems to be a last addition to the final idea to make the movement seem more clever than it is; the town's name is completely irrelevant during the story; and despite the Prophecy said that nobody could fail answer, they finally do it anyway. The story itself creates a monstrous paradox that is completely ignored and that acts like a chart for inexplicable events. What's more, Clara is completely useless during this episode - Time Lords were giving the regeneration pack to the Doctor anyway, because that were the only chance they had to escape from the bubble where they were trapped. God Complex room scene is completely ruined in order to give explanation to a vague weak plot, instead to leave it in complete mystery and free interpretation for the watcher, as the writer of the episode The God Complex desired.
And we are not talking about all the misogynistic connotations that appears over the progression of the episode. The nudity in general, the sexual assault to Tasha Lem and the Doctor's commentary after his controversial actions, doesn't help to the image of Moffat. And despite of all those cute scenes, for instance that picture of the Doctor playing with the children, or when they open the cracker, or the Classic Who references, or the final speech of the Doctor in the TARDIS (scenes that I really enjoyed), The Time of the Doctor closes as a simple and awful story that will never represent the Eleventh Doctor era.
@Amy the Consulting Key Ring @geronimon But a celebration about the 50 years of the show doesn't limit the appearance of characters to the writing preferences of the writer. Giving cult to this show should be a reason to display characters that hasn't appeared since a very long time, and keeping out people who contributed to Doctor Who and probably will not have a new chance to appear in the show is a huge disrespect. <br/> Also, it's not the recognizance of the character what decides the importance of said one, but the importance for the main character given a series of contexts and happenings. Susan is the person who the Doctor loved, loves or will love most, precisely because is a close relative to him. But Rose, next to his grandaugther is not more than one of the companions in one frame of the many years the Doctor has travelled through the universe.

@Taz C ?????????????????? hundred of years happened after dalek invasion????????????????????????????
They could mention Romana, Leela, K9... There is many more people the Doctor loves in Gallifrey apart of children. They had the opportunity of not devastating the diversity of canon divergence, and they did it anyway. To me, it's a big mistake. Less points to the episode, despite its good quality.
I don't understand why they didn't use the face of Susan for the Moment interface, given that she is far more important than Rose for the history of the show and the Doctor.
this is like average episode but stands out with the 45 minute shitload set called series 7

Why do they keep using the same writters again and again like not matter how hecked up their scripts are, they just keep falling with the same rock. It's frustrating.
