A Town Called Mercy v.s. The Doctor’s Daughter

A GREAT EXAMPLE OF MOFFAT’S INCREDIBLE SHOW RUINING SKILLS

… Okay, I don’t defend Moffat’s show-writing abilities much, but:

  1. This episode was written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Saul Metzstein. Neither of which are Moffat.
  2. These parallels (or, really, lack-there-of) are purposeful. It’s not discontinuity based on bad writing. It’s showing the dark path the Doctor’s going down. He’s meant to be waving about a gun and throwing the other doctor over the barrier, because he’s losing his sense of morality, patience, everything, really. He’s tired. He’s broken. He’s guilt-ridden and drowning in his own self-hatred, so much so that he genuinely doesn’t know. It’s not bad writing - it’s character development.

YES. THANK YOU

THIS.

Leave Moffat alone - especially when he WASN’T EVEN INVOLVED.
