Help & Opinions Required
For a final year project I’m researching villains and how certain villains gain popularity. It would be incredibly helpful if any villain lovers out there could take a small amount of time to answer these questions. You can answer however you want; respond to the post itself or even anonymously answer via the ask box.
- What do you think is more important, what a villain does or why they do it?
- What do you think is attractive about villains?
- Have you ever identified with a villain? If so, why?
- Has your perspective of a villain ever been influenced in anyway by what actors or producors of the text have said about the character and story?
- (Optional) Are you male or female?
If you have any questions about the research or why these particular questions are being asked you can ask me.
Parallels between River Song and Mary Morstan in “His Last Vow.”
The story and Moffat’s era in general, is one almighty sieve. It’s shiny and makes awesome noises if you bang it with a spoon, but it’s absolutely full of holes and can’t hold anything (your attention, any character development, any tension) for more than a moment.
And what are we if not women up to a challenge? Exactly! I mean, did we not put the ‘grr’ in girl?
Let’s talk about how nothing has happened in Eleven’s life that is darker than anything that has happened in Ten’s. Woe is me, Eleven. What is SO BAD that it erases THAT? Please fucking enlighten me. EVERY SINGLE ISSUE you have had has righted itself without consequence to you or anyone you care about. Boo hoo you lost Amy and Rory (who you know lived long, happy lives).
Ten lost Rose. Ten lost Donna. Ten has to live with the fact that he is partially responsible for Martha’s ENTIRE family becoming slaves to the Master, something they don’t get to happily forget. He has to live with Adelaide Brooke, Harriet Jones,…
And, while it can be argued that Eleven also has to live with that, it is CRYSTAL CLEAR that Eleven (Moffat) has put away/ set aside/ compartmentalized everything before his time; Nine and Ten (RTD). And, from this episode on, has basically overwritten it.
Ending. Burning. Falling. All of it, falling. The black, and pitch. And screaming fire. Soul burning.

Doctor Who 50th Spoilers/Questions.
Gallifrey falls no more, right? So Rassilon and the time lords don’t have a crazy plan to break through the time lock and ‘save Gallifrey’ because its their last hope of survival…So what about The Master’s drumming in his head? And where is The Master…? On Gallifrey wherever it’s been conveniently stored away…? Or were the drums never implanted in his head? And what would he be without them?…And so on and so forth.
