aka “Elitism is my middle name”

Oh fuck you, Steven.
Right, I was never a massive fan of the Doctor-Rose romance, but it did make a sort of sense. At his hearts, the Doctor fights for the underdogs, the people oppressed by the establishment. Even when he works with members of the powerful elite, he does so with a sneer and a critical whit. When he is with actual normal people he is at his happiest and most relaxed. That’s why he and Rose worked as an idea.
The fact that Moffat has the Doctor chumming up with Winston Churchill and this statement above shows that he fundamentally interprets the Doctor as a power fantasy, rather than as a liberator or friend. That’s the major difference between Moffat Who and Davis Who.

Not to mention Richard Nixon …

I also think that Reinette’s lines “One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel” and “The Doctor is worth the monsters” get it fundamentally wrong. The companions don’t simply tolerate the unpleasantness they encounter because that’s the price for the privilege of basking in the Doctor’s dudely awesomeness.   They travel with him out of curiosity and a sense of adventure, and a side effect of the travels is discovering their own power and awesomeness. Like Rose says,  “It was a better life. And I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things. That don’t matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know he showed you too. That you don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away …”

And since I know what a big fan you are of CE here you go

Not to mention that the Doctor didn’t have a choice and /had/ to settle down with Reinette because he was stranded, and the minute he was able to leave that life, he did. Unlike the one time he was given a *choice* to settle (as tentoo) he choose to settle with who? Rose. You’re classism is blatant and obvious Moffat

Vaquita (Phocoena sinus)

The vaquita is a rare species of porpoise. It is endemic to the northern part of the Gulf of California. Estimates of the number of individuals alive range from 100  to 300. Vaquitas are the smallest and most endangered species of the cetacean.Vaquitas use high-pitched sounds to communicate with one another and for echolocation to navigate through their habitats. They generally seem to feed and swim at a leisurely pace. Vaquitas avoid all boats and are very evasive. They rise to breathe with a slow forward motion and then disappear quickly. This lack of activity at the surface makes them difficult to observe. Vaquitas are usually alone unless they are accompanied by a calf, meaning that they are less social than other dolphin species. Vaquitas are nonselective predators.
