Did any otherat start watching and had to stop because of the intrusive
and awful background music? I can't remember that being a problem in the
past. What previously caused me to stop watching were the
incomprehensible plots and even less continuity than in TA. There's been
some really good writing over the past few years. I think of 'The Empty
Child' and 'Don't Blink'. It seems those days are long gone.
I have neither a TV nor a TV licence and it wouldn't be playing the
game to watch Docteroo. But, having convinced myself that subtitles
are an assistance to the programme and not the programme itself, I
did happen to download the .srt subtitle files (get_iplayer --subsonly
<programme details>) to see what I was missing to which my response
was - not much.
Steven Moffatt is IMO an absolutely brilliant scriptwriter but my
opinion of him as a showrunner is unprintable in umra. I still watch
and enjoy old episodes from time to time and the best ones are almost
always his. A great shame.
