If you had asked John Watson a week ago whether there was anything worse than trying to manage Sherlock Holmes when he was caught in the midst of intense cocaine withdrawals, he would have laughed in your face.
Now, he’d give just about anything for things to be that simple.
the fucking end of time part 1 and the "DNA signature" on lucy's mouth for 2 fucking years and *~*~*POTIONS*~*~* and "the master race" and that random obama bit like WOOOW
Ugh, yes. I didn’t even go into the pathetic excuse for a plot in The End of Time because if I started I don’t think I’d ever stop. I adored John Simm’s Master in series 3, and what they did to his character in The End of Time is practically a travesty. Randomly turning into a skeleton after being brought back from the dead by a cult with a potion made from indestructible DNA, and then eating people and shooting lightning out of his hands? Really?!
That special was the laziest piece of self-indulgent bullshit I have ever seen in my entire life, and the fact that people hero worship all over it just makes me want to put my head in my hands and weep.
I know you said that you didn't like the Tenth Doctor specials. The only one I liked was Waters of Mars. I feel that episode was enough to say about this Doctor. The other 3 not so much. What were some of your issues with the specials?
So right off the bat I’m going to say that if you’re a fan of RTD or like the specials, the opinions I have here will probably piss you off. Just bear in mind that these are just that - opinions. I’m also going to warn you in advance that this is going to be a long and probably rather incoherent answer because for as many times as I’ve tried I have a really hard time putting into words all of the problems that I have with the specials. It’s one of those situations where there are so many things I want to say that I hardly know where to start, and it kind of ends up coming out a jumbled mess. But I’ll do my best.
An ex-space doctor and consulting astronaut end up on a mission together on space ship 221B in the Reichenbach galaxy. It’s the greatest adventure in the known cosmos and it was never written.

Bye bye, Ponds. Hope you enjoy the 30s. <3
… or why I think Moffat set up the perfect scenario to save River from the Library in the series finale.
