So, once upon a time, Doctor Who mostly made sense, and I liked it that way. There were a couple of instances of sciencefail, but I could usually ignore them and get on with enjoying the plot, which tended to be cohesive and reasonable if I ignored that it was built on sciencefail. And mostly I didn't need to do that.
However, I've spent the past three episodes going, "What? WHAT? WHAT???
" For large sections of sciencefail, plot not making sense, things not behaving the way they were previously established to . . .( Spoilery complaints. I'm up to S5E5. )
When did 'evil' become something the doctor was concerned with, anyway? I guess it showed up with Seven, some, but I don't remember it at all in Four, Five, or Six, and nowadays it's like evil is the new bubble wrap, and you can't be a cool monster without it. This isn't D&D. (Although that one episode was a bunch of clerics splitting the party on a dungeon-crawl.)
And when did we start monologuing all the time without ever actually sharing information with people? Is this don't-tell-anyone-anything season?
