Heere’s the thing about 11th Doctor: his character could be done well. If y’all think back to episodes like The Girl Who Waited and The God Complex, these episodes were well-written, straight-forward, and properly heart-wrenching at points, and there was actually character development. These episodes made you care for the characters and understand this new Doctor. Why? Because the episodes were written by someone who wasn’t Moffat. The trouble with the new!Who is not it being tired or the actors doing a bad job, but the chief writer is a complete pig that writes sexual assault as comic relief and turns the Holocaust into a gimmick. And people wonder why I’m sceptical about 12th doctor.

Sidenote: not saying all guest writers are beneficial, see Gatiss.

#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.

and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:

"Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives."

Everything about Nine was great

I was legit sobbing, okay.
Like pounding my chest and rending my garments sobbing.

“Episode 4 saw the words Bad Wolf appear for the first time. I just made it up on a whim, cos I liked the idea of the TARDIS being graffiti’d. But then I spent the rest of the episode idly wondering who that kid was, why he wrote those odd words. And, having dismissed notions of Evil Super Villain Kid, a plan began to form, in mid-production. Knowing that Rose would become the Time Goddess at the end of the series, I wondered if a Time Goddess would imprint herself on the universe, creating things in her image, like the face of Jesus in a bagel. Better still, these signs would actually summon her into existence. That’s the sort of thing you think about in this job, late at night. And then I worked backwards, inserting Bad Wolf references into almost every script. Funnily enough, I never told anyone what I was doing, in case it didn’t work, but the design department picked up on it—they didn’t even ask what it meant, they just offered to stencil it on Captain Jack’s bomb, in German. The idea spread without anyone knowing what it meant. Which is very Bad Wolf in itself.”

#that awkward moment when a 48 year old scifi show has more continuity #than a 2 year old series about misfit high schoolers 

*ahem- 50 year old…

But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.

That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.

Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.

lmao i remember complaing about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011

additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME

her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’

MOFFAT. *side eyes*

I really liked Jabe, she was only a small character but vital, and I was saddened by her sacrifice.
