THAT’S THE TARDIS!!!
But I absolutely hate that Moffat made him call himself a sociopath. And I hate it even more that the fanbase thinks it’s true. It’s such an utterly silly notion. It’s worse that he said “high functioning sociopath,” too, because sociopaths are high-functioning by default. They’re really amazing learners. This proves that it’s not just Sherlock being a jerk intentionally, but that the line came from someone who inherently doesn’t understand what a sociopath is. And Sherlock is far too smart for that, so it’s Moffat. Moffat not only not understanding the definition of a word he boldly throws into his writing, but not being faithful to the character, who would have read about the subject and would have no doubt found that information important.
I think every moment of the show is flawless save for that one line. If, indeed, this were the only thing Moffat had ever messed up, maybe it’d be more forgivable. Okay, so he obviously doesn’t research every single thing he says. Big deal. The rest of the show is amazing. But Doctor Who.
BBC Sherlock is fan fiction, might I add. So it falls very much into my “pissed when fan fiction writers ignore established character’s psychological profiles” pet peeve.
I just watched several people wander around hallways for about an hour, interspersed with some minor happenings. Also, Clara opened the History of The Time War to the page with The Doctor’s name on it. Right to it.
Also is almost never out of breath or scared. Not particularly enamored with this companion or era. Unless the payoff is utterly insane, this buildup is powerfully bland.
Stupid know it all.
Clara sacrifices herself to a Dalek experiment so 11 can live, fails, her brain creates her first appearance as a means to cope. Doctor monologues while holding up sonic screwdriver allowing the fantasy to continue without being shut down. Says something about soufflés.
Fandom thinks it’s brilliant; isn’t.
