ariasalander:

Can someone explain to me why Moffat haters call people who love Moffat and his work Moffat stans?

It comes from the Eminem song ‘Stan’, which was about a crazed fan so obsessed with Eminem he eventually killed himself and his pregnant girlfriend. People often accuse others of being stans to dismiss their arguments “don’t listen to them, they’re just a stupid stan”. It is not something that is unique to Moffat haters and is used in other fandoms.

What makes up the Ultimate Doctor? A conversation with Steven Moffat on the traits of the Doctor and his flaws with Peter Davidson 

  • Peter Davidson: Of course now, now., I've got this list. You see, I went to see a psychologist. And they gave me this list.
  • Steven Moffat: Long over due.
  • Peter Davidson: Unfortunately he wrote in uh, rather large writing. But here, this is the list he came up with. Wisdom, Optimism, Leadership, Sense of Fun, Unpredictable.
  • Steven Moffat: Well that's interesting, isn't it? Wisdom? Kind of. But he's a deeply unwise man.
  • Peter Davidson: In a way, yes.
  • Steven Moffat: He's blundering through insane situations, overestimating what he can do. I almost think the Doctor flings himself out a window and works out what to do about that on the way down. And if he had a sandwich in his hand he would finish it. Optimism? Well, he would finish the sandwich. Absolutely. Leadership? Again, kind of. Uh, he's got that uh, he never leaves the Time Lord behind, does he? As sweet as he is, and a man of the people though he is, he sort of thinks everyone should listen to him because he's cleverer and more important. Never, never loses that. Sense of fun? Huge sense of fun.
  • Peter Davidson: See, what you are doing is confirming what I suspect. And that is that the Ultimate Doctor is not the same as the Perfect Doctor. As a writer, isn't it more interesting to write about uh, the character Doctor's flaws?
  • Steven Moffat: Well, well the flaws aren't what make the show. I mean, he's funny because he's deeply flawed. No one has ever suggested that he's morally perfect or that he's particularly irrational. I don't think he's even marginally sane. It's all his flaws that make up the story. If he had really, if he was so concerned about all uh, uh, all the goodness in the universe, why didn't he stay on Gallifrey and make the Time Lords better? But he didn't. He's essentially the man who stole a car and drove off into the night. And, and never agreed to stay anywhere for more than one night. What, what we love about him is the fact that he never, ever grew up.


I think I always wanted something that was connected to the darker sort of tones of the earlier Doctors. It’s stark, and it means business, and I believe it. It’s the thing that makes me feel most like Doctor Who. - Peter on The One Show speaking about his costume.

I remember this…Chick got caught cheating on her bf so he put the child locks on the car and locked the girl inside with the roaches.

No woman deserves to go through this. I dont care if she was cheating, woman are allowed to express their sexuality and this is basically slut shaming. Her boyfriend was probably awful and abusive anyway.

Man cheats = emotionally abusive swine
Woman cheats = strong woman expressing her sexuality
Got that?

*whispers* sexism works in both ways
