In my second article for Creators.co, I decided to analyze the Steven Moffat Era, also in order to pay tribute, in a way, and to look at everything, good and bad that Moffat has given us Whovians during his tenure as “Doctor Who’s” show runner.
Here’s a short snippet from the article:
Moffat’s stories range from being lore heavy to complex plots, to well written stories with smart dialogue. Some of his best stories seem to be the ones that focused on particular primal fears, such as statues (Blink), the fear of the dark and what’s under your bed (The Girl in the Fireplace, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, Listen), and the manifestation of death itself or being trapped in your own personal hell (Heaven Sent).
However, Moffat has also been criticized for over stuffing his plots with too many twists and turns and time travel that end up confusing the audience; and for creating scripts that are full of good ideas, but end up falling flat in terms of execution.
