I started out replying to this post by theamazingcat, but it got really long and tangential, so I decided to make a separate post.

This is for all the Moffat fans who think it’s horrible that people want Moffat to resign from the show, or worse yet, get fired from the show.  And that it’s even more horrible to actively try and get him fired.

Wanting Moffat to leave doesn’t mean we want revenge or or that we wish him ill.  It’s not like “my neighbor keeps stealing my parking space so I’m going to talk trash about them to their boss at the supermarket and get them fired.”  Moffat’s job is to create something that’s seen by the public.  Satisfying the public is a legitimate measure of his job performance, and if he doesn’t do his job well, he should be removed.

And it’s not JUST about satisfying the public, either.  The BBC is a non-commercial network.  It doesn’t exist for the purpose of making money, or of getting the largest possible audience.  Its mission, as defined by British law, is to provide a public service for the people of Britain.  (Audience size does factor into it somewhere, because if nobody is watching, then the public is not being served.)  If a show is sending harmful messages, as I believe Moffat’s Who is, it should be changed.

Also, jobs like Moffat’s are never expected to be permanent.  You don’t get a job as a showrunner and expect to continue doing it until you retire.  Hardly anyone has been in the position of showrunner/executive producer/head writer (or whatever you want to call it; the position and its duties have changed over time) as long as Moffat currently has.  There’s something to be said for periodic changing of the guard in order to keep the show fresh; it’s legitimate to call for his removal for that reason alone.

Moffat also makes a whole lot more money than your supermarket-checker neighbor who steals your parking place.  I’m sure he’d do just fine without the income that Doctor Who brings him.

I wasn't at Bitecon and I haven't seen much of the stuff that was misrepresented but what I did see made me really nervous. Would you mind clarifying a few things? (Like did Jeff really say that Derek wasn't a minor when Kate slept with him?)

Okay, so I’m going to address that question first because NO.  That’s not what he said.  I was sitting at the table closest to the front in the dead center of the room, right in front of Jeff (which is why I got a great picture of him) and what he said was “he [Derek] certainly wasn’t of age, at least not in the state of California.” But he wasn’t talking directly into the mic when he said it, which is the reason for the misunderstanding.

When I heard that there was a rumor going around that JD said Derek was of age, I instantly went to talk to three other people who had been in the panel and all three of them confirm that they heard what I had heard.  

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Uh…… you mean like this?

wow. let it be known that tumblr legitimately changed my opinion on something today.

I’m sorry but is there an advert about toilet paper in there. They are legitimately trying to sex up toilet paper.

The ones you don’t know:

Stuart (Bożydar): The techy who hates overly sweet foods. Extremely narcissistic, shameless and easily annoyed. Not a big people person and religiously hides behind his cell phone.  More information coming later.

Shaun (Sławomir): Known as the health nut who is extremely picky about what he puts in his body. Paintball champion, the sheriff’s fave and the one that wasn’t as close to Claudia as his bothers. Though he may look like the type who would stay out all night in the woods (and let’s be real the forest is one of his favorite places), he’s the boy that thinks it’s better to come home early and set the table. More information coming later.

Captain America was so unrealistic. You honestly expect me to believe they put the flash drive in the right direction on the first try every time.
