Dr Who is terrible
More specifically Matt Smith is terrible. I was a long time fan of doctor who, it was a huge weekly event in my house when I was a kid. Christopher Eccleston was an amazing 9, no one else could have taken the part like he did. David Tennant was amazing also, but in totally different ways, he managed to take lackluster writing and force some life into it (The writing went to shit years ago, we all know that Moffat is terrible, but that’s another subject) .
For me, when Matt Smith came in, it killed the franchise. The show became a joke. The only reason it’s still so popular is the tumblr fandom who care more about his cheekbones than his acting. He is god awful, he forces this awkward quirkiness on his character which does not fit the Doctor at all. And then when he has to be serious, he cannot do it and it makes me cringe.
And then to make things worse, the companions went from strong female characters like Donna Noble and Rose Tyler and Martha Jones, to annoying stereotypical ‘pretty’ girls who are only there because they want to fuck him (don’t even give me “Amy Pond though" she still fancied hell out of the Doctor and it was a major plot line for almost a series, so just don’t.)
Even some of the actors from Old Who dislike the new show because of all the subtle womanizing in its episodes. Not to mention the constant recycling of enemies and story lines. How many times have the Daleks been wiped out completely now, like 6? And somehow, through the magic of lazy writing, they always manage to come back.
Also fun fact: Matt Smith didn’t even watch or know anything about doctor who before he auditioned for it, which would explain his fucking awful portrayal of the 1000 year old time traveler as an 11 boy in a man’s body. Most actors would at least do some fucking research before an audition for such a popular, successful show.
All I can say now is I hope that Peter Capaldi can pull the show out of the gutter and kicks Moffat up the arse for his sexist, lazy writing.
TL;DR Matt Smith is the worst doctor and the show has seriously gone to shit.
