Can we just have Doctor Who back that involved The Doctor, a companion, some chums and maybe a tin dog going around the universe in the TARDIS having a laugh while helping save planets
No complicated bullshit involving companions who have time heads or give birth to time heads or somehow acquire a time head.
Normal ordinary companions who have never done anything out of the ordinary in their lives. People who work in shops and offices. People who have normal families. People who had normal childhoods. People who become ordinarily brilliant because of the things they learn when they go with The Doctor.
Is that too much to ask? Do we need months of ‘is she this?’, ‘is she that?’? No. We’ve done that. Time to strip back to basics. I’m not asking for Rose Tyler to be brought back, or Donna Noble, or Martha Jones. I’m asking for a new kind of ordinary. Someone we can all relate to on a completely ordinary level.
I’m sure some of you will mistake this for Moffat bashing, and no I’m not overly keen on the guy or his writing, but this isn’t about him. It’;s just about the show getting a tad repetitive. It isn’t as relatable as it was a few years ago, and no that wasn’t all down to RTD because he wasn’t the only person who wrote for the show. It needs to be brought back to basics again. No more ‘the show will change in a way it never has before’, no more ‘The Doctor will never be the same again’. I just wish the BBC would stop trying to fix what was never broken in the first place. Stop fiddling.
This has been a rant. Thank you for not listening.
