"I did have some lines in about that," Steven begins, "but then I cut them, because I thought people just wouldn’t really be bothered about it. If asked by one of the writers, I say she has very dream-like images of it. Because Episode 1 is set in Victorian times, I did have a moment where I had her remembering stuff, and then I just ‘Oh this is too much, we don’t care,’ so I got rid of it."
Steven Moffat, in answer to the question of whether Clara remembers what happens in the Doctor’s timestream and whether she remembers all the lives she lived as other versions of herself (via teainthebluebox)
why would we care about the companion or how that massive supposedly-death-defying major event changed her amirite
The more I read his quotes, the more I dislike him.
Okay, this angers me, but I’m not finding any sources on the quote other than Tumblr, can anyone link to a source?
Comes from a DWM interview with the tosser
I think that Lawrence Miles’s review of An Adventure in Space and Time (suggested subtitle: “How Mark Gatiss Got Verity Lambert and Sidney Newman Completely Wrong”) is worth reading.
That’s brilliant. And mortifying. Because I enjoyed Adventure about a milion times more than the crap Moffat gave us with Day.
I still remember liking Nightshade and St Anthony’s Fire, but everything after his first ep, The Unquiet Dead, has been dreadful to, at best, mediocre. And he’s a co-creator and co-writer of excrement that is Sherlock.
Season 7: you know you’re in trouble when a Gatiss script is one of the better ones.
And for posterity, the text of the blog entry:
wait if Eleven really was supposed to be his last life then how the fuck did he start to regenerate by Lake Silencio?
*gasp* You are RIGHT!!!
wait wasn’t that tesselecta!eleven though?
Impossible Astronaut was done and dusted probably long before Moffat even conceived the renegade as a solution to a problem that didn’t need solving.
The easy get-out is that as virtually no one knew about the double-dip regeneration, the Doctor merely added the regen.sfx module to the tesselecta’s little performance because everyone else he knew was watching would have been expecting him to start regenerating.
