Why I hate Steven Moffat as Doctor Who Showrunner

THINGS THAT SHOULD HAPPEN IN SERIES 8 –

1 – A companion from the past, or future.
2 – No nudity.
3 – No companion/Doctor love interest.
4 – No Vastra, Jenny, Strax, or River.
5 – No more Sonic Screwdriver.
6 – A purely historical story.
7 – No more Daleks, Cybermen, Silents or Angels.
8 – A TARDIS that can’t be controlled.
9 – Fewer Earthbound stories.
10 – No stupid catchprases “bow ties are cool”, “fezzes are cool” – We, know, you say it every bloody week!

11 – More two parters – No, Mr Moffat they are not just as expensive as two one parters. If you use the same studio set, they work out cheaper.

Since I originally wrote this on a Facebook page, on 1st January, It has been leaked that ┬áthe Lesbian detectives, and Strax, are in the first episode of series 8 – new Doctor, same old crap

It was recently revealed that a new present day companion will join the TARDIS crew. I wonder what plot device he will have?

Well, the Daleks are coming back. Signs aren’t looking good, for a clean slate.

Things I hate about J. J. Abrams Star Trek

ST Into Darkness was a terrible rehash of ST Wrath of Khan.

With a 4 year gap between films, surely they could come up with adventures that the Shatner crew went through that weren’t screened/logged.

Benedict Cumberbatch is no Ricardo Montalbán. He is not even of Indian descent. (the character)

Karl Urban is excellent as McCoy, but has become a parody of the McCoy character. Consistently spouting proverbs.

Will Spock be talking to his future self in every film, to find out how to defeat the enemy? Lazy writing!

I like Alice Eve, but her accent was terrible.

I don’t like Simon Pegg, and his little buddy. I saw enough of that in Lost in Space.

Why kill Christopher Pike? The character had a rough enough deal in the tv series. And instead of trying to save his life, Spock mindmelds with him!?!?

What happened to the technology that Khan brought to Starfleet?

Anyone notice that Noel Clarke, a cockney, doesn’t actually speak?

Enough of the blue lens flare!

Things I hate about BBC’s Sherlock

Sherlock does not have living parents and TWO brothers.
There is NO hint of Holmes or Watson being gay.
Moriarty did NOT rise from the dead.
Moriarty was a calm, behind the scenes mastermind, who only appeared ONCE in the books.
Dr Watson did not marry an assassin.
Watson is told almost straight away by Holmes how he survived the Falls.

Apart from some obvious Conan Doyle themes, if all the character where given different names, then it would be unrecognizable.
The BBC is not producing Sherlock Holmes!
