But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with
Moffat is personally responsible for my transformation from a massive sobbing mess of a Who fan to a person who has not watched a full episode in literally years

everyone talks about villains from the general idea that they either think they are doing the right thing or expressly want to do bad, like everyone’s a hero in their own mind or they have slipped so far they have truly become something evil. these are the sorts of villains we see most often and sort of define the role
but what if there was a villain that had to be the bad guy? what if there was someone who was forced to take on the role of the villain even though they didn’t want to? by some divine twist of fate and innocent person with not but good in their heart finds themselves stick in a position where they have to become the scapegoat for a larger plan to unfold, the opposition to the heroes actions to make them seem more heroic by comparison. Imagine for every horrible act they commit their heart breaks a little more, each burnt village and slaughtered family haunting them as they cry to sleep each night. a villain who screams into the faces of the higher powers that cast them into this position, howling at the unfairness of it all and all the things they had to sacrifice for this “higher cause”
imagine that villain was destined to die at the heroes hand, their death already preordained by the fates so the hero could have their victory. Every day drawing closer and closer to a fight rigged from the start, a death sentence passed for a crime they had no choice but to commit. all this pain and suffering caused, a pure soul forced to become a monster…
all because every story needs a villain
according to this generator my fursona is:
zombie pup. it is accompanied by glowing orbs. it is melting.
"sparkling purple chicken. it wears a white sundress. it instagrams its starbucks drinks."
this is the most important generator I have ever seen
ghostly hyena. its face is actually an electronic screen. it constantly drips with a tar-like black substance.
Ghostly bat, where its tail should be is just another head, it is a fire elemental
I was wondering why all these weird fursona creatures where popping up on my dash XD
