Ok here’s my two cents,
The biggest problem with Moffat’s Who is that he is writing a fairy tale for the most part which throws up out of place characters like the winders; am I seriously expected to believe their job is to go round winding up street lights?
It started well with the Eleventh Hour, I really enjoyed that episode as I felt it set a nice tone in that it wasn’t all doom and gloom but it wasn’t too silly either (Although that giant eye was really pushing it). After that everything crumbled in my eyes from Matts stupid shouty scene near the end of the best below to the iDaleks.
However Moffat does also share a common weakness with RTD in that neither of them can write a fore filling ending (Doctor Who and Torchwood I haven’t seen any of his other work). The entire 6th Series depended on the ending and it was lets be honest complete cr@p, the shot of the Doctor in the tesselector should have just been replaced with Moffat flipping off the audience with both hands. As an audience we wasted 13 weeks plus the gap for that, at least if it was a ganger it would have given episodes 5 and 6 more relevance but then again the only point of Lets Kill Hitler in the end was to introduce that robot. Also does anyone know why River even had to be in the suit when it was already established that it could move around on its own. Moffat set up and impossible task as there was never going to a satisfying ending to this ark that didn’t throw away an entire seasons worth of story telling of asking is the Doctor good or bad for the universe. Well screw it he has a robot suit and doesn’t need to face up to that question. Seriously every beautiful moment where he slowly comes to term with his death= pointless, hell the entire season= pointless. Don’t get me wrong Moffat can come up with some really good ideas like the Angels and the Silence, however both have been dirtied through recent appearances as in my opinion you should never ever see the Angels move or see the Silence on screen unless the character followed is wearing an eye drive.
But the number one thing that annoys me about Moffat is his off screen winging about how much work he has got as he juggles Who with Sherlock. Why did he even bother if it’s too much? To be honest it makes the lazily written Christmas specials sting a bit more as it’s like he just basing them on other peoples stories to save himself a bit of time.

I always thought it was a one-off type thing, but clearly it isn't. What was wrong with the classic way presenting the logo, the actors' names, and story title?
Maybe it's because I'm super tired but when did this happen?
