A Town Called Mercy v.s. The Doctor’s Daughter
A GREAT EXAMPLE OF MOFFAT’S INCREDIBLE SHOW RUINING SKILLS
… Okay, I have never been one to defend Moffat’s show-writing abilities, but:
- This episode was written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Saul Metzstein. Neither of which are Moffat.
- 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.

#stop ruining the moment ten #seriously why do you gotta ruin this gorgeous makeout love session and ten II was totally bending her and they would have wound up fucking in the sand if you hadn’t decided to go all ‘omg roes look at me leaving u bai’
LOL tags. I bet Ten proper was like, “RTD, no, the edit is fine. They don’t need to see the extended kiss.”
No matter who you are, what you have been through, how terrible you have felt, regardless of where you come from, what you do, what you look like, how you behave, always know that one thing above everything else is true.
Jack Harkness would fuck you.
And no one has noticed because tourists are constantly looking at it.
