During the commercial break midway through “The Curse of the Black Spot,” there was a Doctor Who Insider segment which featured Steven Moffat talking about how it’s great when DW monsters can be both scary and hot. As if the short-skirt jokes and the confession that Karen Gillan was hired mostly because she’s pretty and the cardboard female characters weren’t enough. I am done with this man. If the BBC really want him to write their show, they shouldn’t let him speak in interviews.
I know! Most programmes from the 70s are going to be full of various bigotry, but Doctor Who’s old episodes were WAY less sexist than they are now, it’s amazing. I was watching “Robot” the other day (the first Tom Baker story) and they even commented on misogyny by having Sarah Jane go to meet the boss of a company or whatever and when she turns up at this place she meets a man and a woman and automatically shakes the hand of the man and talks to him as if he’s the boss and the woman says “I didn’t expect male chauvinist attitudes from you” and Sarah Jane is all “what?” and the woman is all “I’m actually the boss.”
Old Who forever, Moffat never.
