Permission to change “are you satan” to “are you metatron” because Metatron is actually the embodiment of true evil in this world whereas Satan was just pretty chill.
“ Satan was just pretty chill.”
what the hell is even going on in your fandom anymore
let’s just say that the apocalypse was less stressful
In fact a lot of us really miss the apocalypse and want satan back

I feel like my feelings toward “The Name of the Doctor” are relatively unique and pretty much the opposite of the rest of the fandom’s.
I mean, for starters, I’ve been sick of River Song since Season 6. She was dandy in 5 and during her time in the Library, but Moffat’s way overplayed her now and she’s just boring.
Then there’s the fact that this episode tried so hard to be excellent, to make it feel like something was at risk or something, but all it managed was to feel rushed and slapped together (much like the majority of Season 7) and I was fairly apathetic about Clara, even though I like her as a companion. It’s just that there’s been basically zero development in her since “The Snowmen”, and that wasn’t even Companion Clara.
Then there’s all this bunk with the Great Intelligence, who could have been an excellent villain, but ended up just being a fool. It was obvious from the moment we saw the ‘body’ of the Doctor what he was planning and that it’d fail because we’ve had Clara’s impossibility rammed down our throats every possible instant since she came along.
Lastly, while I’m very excited with John Hurt playing the Time Lord known as the Doctor, I’m fairly pissed about it, too, because that means that there’s only one more regeneration left for the Doctor, and then he’s done (barring some mystical magical plot device Moffat rips violently from his ass). I don’t really want that, because it means only a few more seasons of Who can be made.
Basically, I wanted to like this episode, but it, along with most of Series 7, just failed to impress. Moffat’s good when someone’s directing him, but let loose, and it just all piles into a steaming clusterfuck.
