"the Hybrid is the Valeyard"

what?? it's literally the friends they made along the way!!

convinced a large chunk of online disdain for the Moffat era comes out of the same inability to deal with ambiguity that modern fan wiki culture has

Show thread

To be clear: NOT saying "if you dislike Doctor Who (2010-2017) it's because you can't deal with ambiguity," just that that inability is absolutely a problem online fandom has and that I think it's one of the foundations for that weird anti-Moffat attitude.

doctor who fandom, a gross choice of words in this one 

while I'm complaining anyway, uhhhh, I fucking know it's possible to say something positive about Doctor Who (1963-2010) without unzipping, hunching over, and taking a thorough shit on 2010-2017 at the same time, but you wouldn't know it from certain parts of the internet.

@Alexis can’t I dislike moffat era for the awful way he wrote female and gay characters?

@Alexis β€œhi ho, i am a dinosaur and also gay. did I mention I am gay? isn’t that weeeird?!”

@zensaiyuki look, it beats the Chibnall era, where the only gay folks all die or have off-screen dead significant others

@Alexis yoo’re right, but who knows what the future holds.

@zensaiyuki Friend, you're a lot more optimistic about Chibnall's ability to engage with queerness than I am.
