Alrighty. This going to be a rant.
He started to have a go at 12 with little reason to. Yes, 12 called him PE, but oh well, you were a soldier, grow up. He got angry at 12 for simply being there. For taking up Clara’s time.
He disrespected 12 without a justifiable reason. He doesn’t know why 12 doesn’t like soldiers, but he has one, and it’s a pretty good one which I happen to agree with. Doc is an alien. A Gallifreyan, and he has the rank of Time Lord. He earned it. He was a soldier who did things he could never forgive himself for. Danny doesn’t know that, and should maybe , I don’t know, think about that before he sounds off at him.
Danny was angry at Clara for travelling across time and space for fun? What the fuck is his problem. Bitch, she was doing that before she even met you. She doesn’t have to give it up just because of you. She will make that choice herself.
Danny is also angry at 12 for thinking he isn’t good enough. 12 has every reason to feel that way. As I said before, he doesn’t like soldiers. Him and Clara have a very special relationship. Clara has saved him, all throughout his lives, she is what made him be the Doctor. He can never repay her. So of course he’s going to be protective. It’s the least he can do.
Basically, fuck you danny
You made a post that was like “I’m not racist, all my reasons for hating Danny are totally legitimate”, so I was curious what those reasons were and clicked your link
and …your post is defending Twelve for actions that are worse than Danny’s while not extending the same courtesy to Danny? You’re mad that Danny judges Twelve without knowing him, but not that Twelve does the exact same thing to Danny? You’re telling Danny to “grow up” and “stop being childish” because he’s a soldier, while Twelve, who is over two thousand years old, can get away with it because…??? You’re mad that Danny is infantilizing Clara over something he did not actually do — he did not actually ask her to stop travelling, he was mad that she lied to him for a year — but Twelve being petty, jealous and irrational is okay because he was “protecting her”?
I mean come on.
Despite how much Moffat enrages me when he writes Doctor Who episodes and often (if not always) forgets some of the canon he actually started or writers before himself started, speaking of writers; whilst we all agree Moffat is ruining the Doctor Who series since Russell’s time - it isn’t always Moffat that wrote the episode (in terms of the new series) because I’m nearly sure some of the Christmas episodes were written by separate writers who often only wrote one or two episodes, so Moffat (despite my hatred for him) isn’t responsible for most errors in the series but he should at least acknowledge some of the canon in the series itself from various writers because they’ve made some very good canon for the series.
But again, not only Moffat should take responsibility, other writers should remember some of the canon left over from Russell’s time as a writer of the series and even Moffat’s own canon. But again, the series is spiraling into disaster and I just want Moffat to pull the plug and be done with it.
Doctor Who just isn’t what it used to be.
Actually none of the Christmas episodes have been written by anyone other than the showrunner. RTD wrote all the Christmas specials in his run, and Moffat has written every Christmas special since he took over.
It is pretty easy to see who wrote what — they tell you at the start of each episode, and it can be easily looked up on the internet. You are right that Moffat hasn’t written every episode in his tenure, and neither did RTD, but as showrunner he still bears some responsibility because he has the power to change whatever he likes — so while for instance I don’t think Moffat is the first to blame for Eleven kissing Jenny in “The Crimson Horror”, since that episode was written by Gatiss and since that kiss was supposedly Matt Smith’s idea, as showrunner it is still Moffat’s job to go “no, that’s creepy, we’re not using that”, so he is still somewhat responsible.
And since s8 is airing right now it’s worth noting that Moffat has co-writer credit on almost every episode this season. So he is basically taking on even more responsibility for what goes on screen than before. Of what has aired so far, only “Robot of Sherwood” wasn’t credited to him at all. So “Moffat didn’t write that, you can’t blame him” is holding less and less water as time goes on.
Ichabod x Abbie | My faith in you is my greatest weakness.
Look at all the TV aerials. Looks like everyone’s got one. That’s weird. My nan said tellies were so rare they all had to pile into one house.
Not around here, love. Magpie’s Marvellous Tellies, only five quid a pop.
lol i want to say “whatever, who cares about katrina”
the cranes are seriously so boring lmao i hate henry too, most boring horseman of the apocalypse ever
and crane himself is only really entertaining in the context of interacting with abbie and reacting to modernity
literally the only thing they have in common is being black men
A bossy girlfriend who is constantly choosing the Doctor over him
LOL I TOO WAS WONDERING WHAT HER PLAN WAS TO RELAY MESSAGES???? Is she actually gonna do some goddamn witching or something
messenger pigeons idk
I hope her spy skills surpass “blatantly peeking around a doorway” lmao
"Actors of East Asian descent don’t get the opportunities white actors do. I know that’s inherently a problem in a country that produces a lot of period drama, but I have to fight so hard to get parts that don’t have something to do with China.”
It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid of it. So, listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You’re always going to be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that’s okay, because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m going to leave you something just so you’ll always remember… fear makes companions of us all.
lol this fandom will do logical backflips to justify twelve repeatedly calling clara ugly/fat/etc but danny has one poorly-worded line that boils down to “if you keep lying to me i will have to break up with you” and people decide they hate him forever and he’s abusive
(Honestly at this point I’m seeing more “Oh the fandom is freaking out so much about what Danny said” than “Oh Danny is so abusive”. I don’t think we’re actually doing the backflips as much as people are thinking….)
I spend a lot of time in the Doctor Who tag. I’m not hallucinating. Danny’s been called all manner of things since “The Caretaker” aired — manipulative, abusive, useless, “another Mickey” even though literally all he has in common with Mickey is that they are both black, people have freaked out that he “yelled at Twelve in his home” like Twelve didn’t spend the entire fucking episode harassing Danny at work for no reason.
Meanwhile all season long there’s been various posts trying to explain away why Twelve is justified in things like his totally irrational and inexplicable hatred of soldiers (which incidentally has been directed most notably at two black people, well done there, everyone) and multiple people have even argued that him insulting Clara is meant to be ~empowering~~~ because supposedly it tells girls you can still have value even if you’re ugly. You know, you just have to put up with your supposed BFF reminding you how ugly you are every five minutes.
