Doctor Who Analysis: Davies or Moffat?

So, what does a person talk about when he is writing his first blog?

Talk about world affairs?

A new diet program that all the celebrities are using?

How to better the world in every possible way and how to spread that idea to all the millennials of the world?

Nope. I am going to tell my opinion about the updated Doctor Who and its new writers. I feel so important.

Russell T. DaviesSteven Moffat

The two writers of the show are Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat. While it was Russell who actually brought the show back in 2005 after its “retirement” back in the late 80’s, Moffat had taken over the show later on in 2010. Davies decided to leave the show as the show runner at that time. This has torn “Whovians” (fans of the show) as to who had done the better job of running Doctor Who. Both have received mixed reviews, as well as many of the fans being one sided: either siding with Davies or with Moffat.

As a professional Netflix-binge-watcher( please let that be an actual career), I feel that Davies was the one that I have to go with. Simply put, he made the show more “fun” by not being afraid to add a few more aliens or to take us to another world. Moffat is great in creating the “holy wow did you see what he just did” factor, but I feel that that idealism can only get you so far.

You have to step it up Moffat; a show about a time-travelling alien from outer space means that you have permission to take us out into outer space. Just saying.
