  • Jed Whedon has words about the Dr. Horrible sequel: It “will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future.” Thanks for clearing that up. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • Steven Moffat doesn’t think he’s sexualized Doctor Who and its main character. OK then. (IGN)

    I’m worried what the Doctor would have been like if Moffat had actively worked to sexualized him. :S

    I would just like to remind everybody that Oculus is an Amy Pond AND Starbuck movie. That is all.

    I won’t be able to watch the movie – I have a phobia of mirrors – but I like the poster.

    Woohoo!

    Instead of bow ties and fezes it would be no-shirt and pant malfunctions.

    So… like Time of the Doctor, then.

    But all the time! With cheesy porn music.

    I think he tone it down after Russell T Davies’ run where everyone fell in love with the Doctor.

  • Richard Grant

    It kinda depends on how you look at his quote, and what he is responding too. Because if the initial suggestion in saying that he sexualised the character is that there were no sexual elements to the character before Moffat began writing, that simply isn’t true. The sexualisation, and exploring of The Doctor’s sexuality, was most certainly there for the RTD era before Moffat took over.
    Having said that Moffat does approach the Doctor’s sexuality abit more explicitly than it was under RTD, the little banter between Tasha and 11 in the last episode being a good example of it.
    So a better claim to be making would be that his approach to The Doctor included the continuing trend of making The Doctor’s sexuality much more overt, rather than keeping it at the same level as it was under RTD.
