LucklessWonder: sinanju: Lots of us watched Coupling. I am of the opinion that Gina Bellman should be the next Doctor.

She would be good if they decide to go the female doctor route. I like Matt Smith and want him to stay a while though. And I'd like the next Doctor to be older (Tony Head?) just because they can't go much younger without having a fetus.

/also, no more River & Amy in S7. Rory can stay.


I have tits now. Tits are cool.

LucklessWonder: Le Grand Inquisitor: Nietzsche is Dead: He only writes his scripts in sequence, but how does he edit them?

After watching all of Coupling and all the Sherlock so far, I have a difficult time believing that he does not do tons of rewrites.

Someone else has watched "coupling"? God, i thought i was the only one.

Coupling was the shiznit, up until Jeff left. Plus it's always on Netflix streaming

Three words: Lesbian. Spank. Inferno.

That is all.

Balchinian: DarkPascual: Que the "Steven Moffat is a hack" crowd...



Present and accounted for, sir.

I don't know what his next project will be, but no matter what it is, even if it is a freaking nature documentary series, it will involve bad actors, 3 or 4 plots that will be cycled thourgh over and over again, and it will be inscrutibly written.
Oh yeah, let's not forget the obligatory gay subplot.

If directors are Italian food, Moffatt is Spaghetti-O's.


He sayeth with a clenched buttocks that hath nary allowed the passage of a single turd in a fortnight.

Maybe so, maybe no, but that doesn't make me wrong. Feel free to show me something that he has done that my criticism does not apply to. I'll take it back if you can. But you can't. So fark off.


He wrote the screen play for that. No gay sub-plot, I don't think Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis or Daniel Craig are bad actors. And the plot was from Herge, so not inscrutably written and didn't cycle through elements featured in Coupling, Who, Press Ganag or Sherlock.

Tin-Tin was not "his" project, he just wrote the screenplay, as you said. So that doesn't really count. Even so, I hold that it was almost certainly dreadfully written simply based on how terrible everything else he has written has been. However, without seeing the screenplay I can't actually judge that. A capable director can make a decent movie out of an inscrutible screenplay, so the finished product is not necessarily a valid indication of the quality of the screenplay. Given that he was handed a plot already, his actual input was automatically held to a minimum, so he wasn't really given an opportunity to be in control of much of the things I criticize him for.

BTW, Tin-Tin, like Biggles (from which Moffatt stole Capt. Jack), was full of gay undertones. He wouldn't have had to write them in, they are already there.

Oh, and I should point out that Daniel Craig has all the acting ability of a pine t ...

That's OK.
RTD refused to right down good storylines. Didn't stop him from filming what he had...

He does the drafts once he falls through the Sock gap, no self respecting woman will do the squelchy with him after that.
