Amy is sexy, feisty, and totally wants the Doctor. River is sexy, feisty, and totally wants the Doctor. Clara is sexy, feisty, and totally wants the Doctor. Queen Elizabeth is sexy, feisty, and totally wants the Doctor. So to mix things up a bit, Moffat created Tasha Lem, a female character who is sexy, feisty, and totally wants the Doctor.

….

At this point, the problem isn’t just that Moffat’s women are all some combination of sarcastic and flirtatious, the problem is that they all seem to exist to be sexual interests for the Doctor. Tasha Lem’s character had a great deal of potential: she’s a powerful woman leading what is apparently the predominant religious and military force in the galaxy, attempting to maintain a peace between some of the most violent and destructive races. But in the narrative she exists primarily as another woman who must flirt with the Doctor.

This type of benevolent sexism has become a pattern in Moffat’s treatment of women; he assures us that the Doctor isn’t bothered by women in positions of power because he finds powerful women sexy and attractive, but by doing so he reduces these women to sexual interests. A woman apparently can’t be in a position of power without also being a sexual interest for the Doctor. In Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who, women, even when they are in positions of power and strength, are primarily there for the enjoyment of men.

Whovian Feminism: Whovian Feminism Reviews “The Time of the Doctor” 

Loooooving the whovianfeminism tumblr. I haven’t read every post in it so I might be repeating something already written there, but anyway:
This post reminded me of how annoyed I am that whenever women in Moffat’s Doctor Who get a bit of background story (and it’s often very very little background at all), it seems to be designed entirely to make them into another sexy pin-up girl fantasy.
Amy gets to be a sexy police-woman/kissagram, then a model, then a travel journalist. When she is a model ever detail of the scene implies that she is succesful and when she is a travel journalist she sets her own hours so she’s also clearly doing well, yet we never get any details on how she managed to have these two very demanding careers, nor do we see her striving to be something and then achieving her goals. Her career jumps from one succesful career to the next are not very credible to say the least. So it feels a lot like Moffat just went ‘it would probably be hot if Amy was a model this time’ and just went with that. 
Clara seems to start to fall into the same pattern quickly. She’s a sexy genius in a red dress when we first meet her, then becomes a barmaid, a nanny and a teacher. Seriously, is Moffat working through a book of wank fantasies? or a list of professions-women-are-likely-to-have-at-the-start-of-a-porno list?

iamrebornthruhim:

Is is one of those episodes that was so important to the show. Not because it was major plot device but because it was an episode that, for the most part, was random yet hit every viewer right in the heart.

Why did no one remember her?

Does this episode show what humans are capable of or does this show a side of the doctor never witnessed before?

bandgeeklikeme:

So I went to Dragon*Con a few weeks ago and found a great Snape and Ten cosplaying near each other. It was in the busy section of the vendor fair so I just asked for a picture of them together and ten just said “on a scale of 1-11 how close do you want us?” so I said “uh…12”
AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED

I THINK I ACCIDENTALLY CREATED FAN FICTION
