Reviewing Doctor Who Episodes Without Having Watched Them: 'Listen'

(6 comments)

This is, of course, another episode that all the usual Moffatistas praise to the skies.  Well, that's fair enough.  All the Moffaty things they love are here.  Again.  And what on earth could possibly be wrong with wanting to watch exactly the same things over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again?  I mean, Moffat makes lots of money writing the same things over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, so obviously repetition is good, right?  Stands to reason. 

Also, such is the religious devotion that certain people have to this man that nothing thrills them more than yet another episode where Moffat sticks his hand up Doctor Who's arse and rearranges its guts to his liking... or (perhaps a better metaphor) meticulously works his way through a library of classics, scribbling 'Steven Moffat is cleverer than the person who wrote this' over every page.  And he is, obviously, because he gets big viewing figures and makes lots of money from being a Whovian capitalist.  The definition of artistic success, clearly.

I am very close to calling shennanigans on this whole "without having watched them" thing, since it's stretching credulity to suggest that you could have made such an accurate analysis of the episode without having seen it.

You're not taking into account how predictable Moffat is.

Do you have a generator that just spits these out? This is the most Jack Graham post on Doctor Who under Moffat that one could conceptualize. It's a piece of art.

I mean, it's completely wrong. But all the same.

Of course it's wrong: I HAVEN'T WATCHED THE EPISODE. Hello?

Where in the world have you picked up the impression thaat Moffat ever writes anything with the thought 'Steven Moffat is cleverer than the person who wrote this'?
