STFU FFS

OK, I am officially now sick to death of the Amy/Rory angst. They're gone - get over it. (And thanks for ruining them for me, fandom.)

P.S. I never liked Rose, and actively loathed her once the mooning over 10 started, so I didn't need fandom's incessant misty-eyed "feels" to ruin her.

I liked them both, but their story had kinda run its course.

Besides, they'll probably be popping back up now and then just like Rose.

GOD I HOPE NOT. I liked them, too, but they're GONE. Let's leave it at that. I'll even give up hope for Donna returning at this point.

Yeah, Donna was my favorite. I was amused by the comments that she sounded like an old fishwife, but that's what made her a good foil.

I'd have to agree, though. It's past time for them to live their lives already.

I really wish they'd actually filmed Rory's letter to his father - that, in a lot of ways, would have really ended their storyline for good.

The problem with Moffat as a showrunner is that he doesn't know how to write big. For all his faults, RTD could manage that, whereas Moffat works best when it's to a small scale, like one or two episode-long short stories, or as with his original work, just a few humans hanging around and talking. If he had limits put into place to begin with - two or three seasons, whatever, but the time frame put into place before he started anything - it'd be so much better.

Besides, Martha was the best.

And now that I think about it, Martha teaming up with Rory for something or other, just for the duration of a 5,000 word fic covering a single adventure, would be totally kickass. The Roaming Doctor and the Roman Nurse.

I think I did like RTD's visions better than Moffat's, for much of what you just pointed out.

And yes, I loved Martha, too, although the unrequited love subtext I could have lived without. :)

The unrequited subtext stopped bothering me when the Doctor started sighing about Martha to Donna, and I realized it took him a while for his feelings about companions to pass by. Which was fine! It made his sighing over Rose make a lot more sense.

Then they brought Rose back, which brought all that lovely character development crashing down.

Oh, I don't mind him being wistful/remorseful/sad when he loses companions - he *should* care about them, and they about him. That's fine. It's the incessant mooning romantically over each other that's so annoying to me. It's too much, and I can't tolerate it. If he'd just been sighing over the fact that he lost Rose to another dimension, fine, he can feel guilty about that, but he wasn't - he LURRRRRRRRRRVED her and all. BLEH. The only crying I want to see are the tears during a goodbye, not tears of unrequited lurve. DOUBLE BLEH. ;)
