Doctor Who becomes an illogical, unscientific, silly soap opera in Kill The Moon


Re: What's happened?

I can't decide if it's crap scripts, or Capaldi's portrayal of the Doctor

It's the scripts.

Peter Capaldi is a superb actor. The writers are trying to use his demeanour to create an edgier, more combative Doctor.

But what they've actually written is a grumpy, bitter old man. His actions are contrary to everything that has gone before. This isn't something that Capaldi can act around - this is the story line they're writing for him.

IMO, that's why it's not working - the writers have turned him into an old curmudgeon, rather than the (somewhat shabby) guardian of all timespace.
