Oh for fucks sake. Moffat can quite literally do nothing right anymore can he?
He created Jack. Pansexual hero known to millions.
Actually RTD created Jack, with a lot of input from John Barrowman, and had Moffat put him into the script for The Doctor Dances/The Empty Child.
Also Jack was omnisexual, not pan. Pay attention.
He created the victorian multi-species lesbian relationship in Good Man Goes to War, apologies, I’ve forgot their names right now.
He created River- who admitted in Silence in the Library that she fancied all of her crew, male and female.
Yet apart from one “I don’t fancy you” to Lux, (Ambiguous at best - many viewers viewed it as a personal dislike, not a sexual one), no hint was given of her attraction to any gender identity unless it was the Doctor
CANTON DELAWARE III.
These are characters from stories he’s wrote for Doctor Who and that’s just off the top of my head that I can think of right now.
Whereas we got trans*, multi-racial, gay, bi, characters from RTD. Also the icky lovelife thing in Love and Monsters.
And then in his other work, there’s the happy lesbian couple in Jekyll too.
Dont say that Moffat is homophobic, or that he’s perpetuating the stereotype that not being straight is only a phase. He’s given us some of the best queer characters in Doctor Who. One character who mentioned having a phase of believing she wasn’t completely straight- which hey, does happen sometimes! doesnt mean that Moffat is any sort of homophobic or perpetuating any sort of stereotype.
I am so fucking done with Tumblr. Jesus.
I’ve never seen Jekyll and so won’t comment on it.
He is not as great with gay, lesbian, bi, or pan characters as people want to assume.
I have less issue with the ‘it was a phase’ line, because sexuality is fluid. I would love to see JLC’s character express more non-hetero sexuality.
