like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means…

Incoming Doctor Who Peter Capaldi has revealed there will be no flirting with co-star Jenna Coleman in the new series.

The previous Doctor was engaged in a close relationship with his sidekick Clara that even led to a passionate kiss.

But Capaldi, 56, insisted his Time Lord would not be…

I feel bad for all the Whoffule shippers out there to be honest… that is one harsh way to kill a ship. I mean they’ve had interviews saying they view each other in this way and in the last episode you did get lots of a romantic vibes between them and to have them erase that part of there relationship will suck for them. I didn’t ship them at all but I hope this will open fans eyes to the fact that there is no continuity at all in Doctor Who, one minute Moffat saying the Doctor really fancies Clara and now since the Doctor is an Old Man ”that it was all a silly little crush that the Doctor played with and toyed with Clara’s feelings like a pretentious dick and what are you guys talking about Clara is in no way “Mysterious” or “Clever” or “Beautiful” enough for the Doctor to develop serious feelings for, in fact my Doctor is more of a real Doctor cause he isn’t pretty, all the pretty Doctor’s just regenerated that way cause they wanted to toy with ladies feelings, HA Eight never had real feelings for Charley, and Ten didn’t have real feelings for Rose…  BUT ELEVEN DID FOR RIVER have no doubt about that even if I never showed it too you. My DOCTOR IS THE MOST SPECIAL DOCTOR EVER….. HAHA Your’s all WRONG” 

I hope this just shows people out that Moffat just changes whatever he likes so it suits one episode and doesn’t care about long term character development or about long term in general. 

I know. It’s going to be a real kick in the teeth to those shippers. And what kills me is that Moffat really didn’t need to do it. If he always intended to hire an “older” Doctor (ie; Capaldi) after Matt, then why write in a romantic subtext between Clara and Eleven he would later have to awkwardly erase? He never let it go anywhere, so what was the point of  it? The whole thing was concocted to reel in shippers, and then discarded the minute Moffat decided to chase a different demographic.

Which … way to treat those fans like shit, Moff.

And I am beyond sick of the digs Moffat keeps aiming at those who came before him, in an attempt to establish his Doctor Who as “the most credible” version of the show or the “best” version, or whatever he’s aiming at. “Eleven’s the best” - “Any old idiot can be a hero” - and now this rubbish about how Twelve’s younger incarnations were “a mask” he wore to be accepted (presumably by hot young women)? It’s so against the spirit of the show and so disrespectful to its history I can’t even fathom how so much of the fandom still puts up with him.

Incoming Doctor Who Peter Capaldi has revealed there will be no flirting with co-star Jenna Coleman in the new series.

The previous Doctor was engaged in a close relationship with his sidekick Clara that even led to a passionate kiss.

But Capaldi, 56, insisted his Time Lord would not be following in Matt Smith’s footsteps by getting intimate with 28-year-old Coleman’s character.

"There’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure," he told the Sunday Times Magazine. "It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments’. I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant."

The Papa-Nicole comment relates to a series of 1990s Renault Clio car adverts which hinted at a romance between an older man and a younger woman, before they were revealed to be father and daughter.” [x]

Having read the five leaked scripts, I can confirm there is no flirtation between the Doctor and Clara … but only because this Doctor refuses to recognize Clara as a woman at all. [Script spoilers ahead.]

After the scene in ‘Deep Breath’ in which he tells her “I am not your boyfriend” (essentially dismissing Clara and Eleven’s romantic tension as a silly crush on her part, and something Eleven wrongly encouraged - I mean, I anti-ship those two, but even I found that offensive) Twelve seems to blind himself to all suggestions of Clara as a sexual or romantic being. He insults her appearance on a regular basis, telling her she has wide hips, for instance, or is wearing no make-up and looks unremarkable when she has clearly just put in a lot of effort for a date. Moffat seems to have no clue how to write a relationship between a man and a woman in which romantic or sexual attraction is simply not an issue. He can’t seem to imagine either side would be unattracted to the other. Apparently the constant stream of insults is supposed to convince us Twelve “doesn’t see Clara that way”. (Clara’s feelings, of course, simply falling into line with whatever the Doctor decrees.)

It’s bizarre, and it would probably work a lot better if Moffat hadn’t spent the past few years writing a constant stream of personal insults as code for sexual / romantic attraction. (Amy / Eleven, Amy / Rory, Eleven / River, Eleven / Tasha Lem, etc etc.)
