kaffyr: The Twelfth Doctor as imagined. (Dashing Twelve)

Working On It

Thinking  thoughts about how Moffat is taking a very risky turn in process as well as story, mixing Doylist and Watsonian angles with drunken abandon, (except that he's doing it very carefully.)

Thinking about the phrase "I am built broken. Watch me."

Thinking about the difference between liking and loving, and the similarities. Thinking about dislike and discomfort and how they are often survival tools.

Thinking about mirrors and mistakes, about how communication is a minuet of misinterpretation, rediscovery and changing minds, and how Moffat pulls it off sometimes, and how sometimes he doesn't.

Back to the tabbouleh salad, notebook at the ready ....

I shall look forward to your further thoughts.

Thinking about the phrase "I am built broken. Watch me."
I love it. Not the least because I am currently building a vid in my head (on the assumption that the season is going to show me what to do with it--risky), but my favorite line of which is 'I was born sick, but I love it. / Command me to be well.'

That's the one! Trying to work out what to make of the role of religion on the show.

And, oh, my thoughts are coming so slowly ... I find myself wanting to make pictures and flow charts and such to order them and make them understandable to me. Gah.
I know the feeling well (hence the thinking in vids). Elisi and I just occasionally throw up our hands over the impossibility of putting this show into words anymore. It's too much. I love it. But it's too much.

Tangent - you reminded me of this fic:

Lost in Translation

I think sometimes we believe Moffat is failing at something and more often he is just showing us something too familiar and uncomfortable and half a season later he shows us we were wrong. *NODS*

True. Think that's what I rather love about him though. For all his brilliance, he does make mistakes. He's not perfect. He's human. Which is what makes his stories and arcs so compelling...

"I am built broken. Watch me."

I obviously need to rewatch, because I missed that bit (and don't even know who says it, though I assume Doctor)

I don't think it's any different than the whole "Basic programming" speech last week. Actually, it was so similar, I could pseudo-mememory hear Capaldi saying it. (And may, with your permission steal it into fic)

Pshhh, I haven't even watched them all, let alone bothered giving coherent thoughts… ;) Take your time and let it all mature in your head!
