mrv3000:

aka “Elitism is my middle name”

Yeah, I pretty much don’t like Moffat’s concept of the Doctor.  Not only does it smack of classism, but it ignores the Doctor’s long tradition of laughing at the so-called “elite” while bumming around with ordinary people.  (ref: Doctor Who 1963 - 2009)

And to think…

The only girl he did settle down with…

Was a working class ‘chav’…

without any A-levels…

from a council estate…

University Study on Sexism in Doctor Who

"Fun fact, Rose’s Bechdal test score would have been in the 80′s were it not for the episodes Moffat wrote during her run."

Guys, really, you should click the link. 

“Ironically, the woman who is often propped up as proof that Steven Moffat is, in fact, not a sexist was one of the worst in terms of the Bechdel test and overall independence of thought and character. While maintaining an average speaking time, the episodes she is in only pass the Bechdel Test 57% of the time, and she herself only passes 42% of the time. She also never passes it on her own after Series 5. It is also important to note that River’s “passes” barely scraped by this test. Her passing conversations were always around three or four lines of exchange total, limited to one per episode, and were always in the presence of/with the Doctor.”

#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.


#excellent tags are excellent#jfc moffat#twelfth doctor#clara oswald#the oncoming patriarchy#in contrast with#ninth doctor#rose tyler#bamf#i know that’s a lot of pictures#but i kept looking for counterexamples#and there weren’t any#someone who’s got more martha and donna promo pictures handy#should do some examples of their presentation

(credit to tragicalhistorytour)
/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:
