Matt Smith could have been such a wonderful doctor… if Moffat hadn’t been writing the show.

woop there it is

These are the serious issues with the Moffat-era writing. Tons of non-serious issues exist as well like poor plotting, those plots being overly-complicated, severe pacing issues, every character who is not the Doctor being underdeveloped (and its arguable that the only reason we know so much about 11 is because we knew the 10 [or 11] other doctors), and a near complete disregard for cannon including his immediate predecessor. 

Now Moffat’s sexist, homophobic and overall regressive writing is definitely the more important issue, but the things I stated above are important in only one way: they make Steven Moffat bad at his job. (The sexist, homophobic and regressive things also make him bad at his job, but apparently the BBC and a ridiculous amount of people are just going to ignore that) 

When your show for children is very sexy, when your show is nearly unable to follow for me a 20 year old adult, and when I actively feel nothing for any character because they have no feelings and exist as plot devices your show is bad.

If I wrote a show that was bad, I would be fired and replaced.

pia douwes meme: never ending friendships [1/3]

"Diamonds are forever, they are all I need to please me. There are no other words that could express my love and friendship better than these James Bond lyrics. Sharing the stage and friendship with Pia became a very important part of my life and this magic sparkle I will always carry in my heart.” - Uwe Kröger

I still can’t believe that I’ve met Joakim Jennefors!

It’s a bit strange though, for when I was talking to him I got this weird feeling of nostalgia. Probably because he has done quite a few voice over works for children’s programs and Disney. He was the Swedish voice for Quasimodo, and he did the theme song for Pokémon. His voice is my childhood. How bizarre is that?

More soup and a bit of fangirling

Okay, so I’m about to explode of happiness. It’s rather silly really, how the tiniest things can make me so happy. But damn it I don’t care! I couldn’t stop smiling on the tube on my way home.

So I was yet again at the Soup Theatre today, to see Joakim Jennefors perform music by Johan Söderqvist, based on Nils Ferlin’s poems (Swedish poet during the early and middle 1900s). It was so, so good. The music was beautiful (classical with a bit of jazz and blues influences) and Joakim’s voice truly shined. The soup was really good too, as it was yesterday. (Pumpkin yesterday and lentil soup today, if anybody wants to know. Of course you don’t but anyway…)
