The Captain Kirk Problem: How Doctor Who Betrayed Matt Smith

Lots of good pulls in this Atlantic article, but some highlights:

The entirety of Season Six is when Moffat’s fascination for plot twists and open-ended mysteries (in our house, we describe this unfortunate tendency as “plotty-wotty”) took over the show, and the whole product suffered.

As Moffat checked off the boxes, … all I could think of was The Eight Deadly Words that doom all forms of storytelling: I don’t care what happens to these people.

If only the problems with this show had anything to do with the cast.

I’ve said it so much on Twitter it should be embarrassing, but Moffat has to go. Who do I write at the BBC? Someone has to be keeping tabs on this kind of criticism, yes?
