A prime example of why I don't listen to anyone from the Dr Who fandom anymore. They have no fucking clue what they are talking about and don't really acknowledge any of the Doctor Who canon.
mmmmmmmmm *shrugs* I don’t know. I mean some people from the Doctor Who fandom are new, they only know Moffat’s writing. Which is kind of sad because it’s so terrible, but it isn’t necessarily bad nor is it their fault. Doctor Who has been around for 50 years. Then there’s all these spinoffs, movies, books, and comic books. No one has time for that shit. That’s like expecting everyone in the Star Trek, Star Wars, or Marvel/DC fandoms to know everything.
I think that the argument of canon vs non-canon gets kind of sketchy in areas where the series has been around for a long period of time. My problem with Moffat and his “canon” is that it’s misogynistic, racist, and it’s poor portrayal of anyone who isn’t a straight able-bodied white cisman. It’s just plan gross. And not to mention it’s terribly written. He has been making things for Doctor Who since 1996. He has worked with the writers who wrote for Christopher Eccleston, probably one of my favorite doctors to ever exist, and he still goes and fucks it up somehow.
But yeah, my point is that I don’t mind hearing an argument from people who only know Moffat’s doctor who, so long as they understand and don’t try to excuse the problematic shit he does.
