Moffat’s Female Characters Top Trumps
I would like to make it clear that I adore these characters in other aspects. I am not attacking the characters themselves, only the problematic and shitty ways in which they were written.
Not to attack the argument, because I think the argument has some validity, but this really isn’t a proper comparison (i.e. There is no control group). I bet you there are plenty of male characters that fill out just like the female characters above. Not every character is meant to be that deep and that’s okay. The real argument should be, why are there so few female characters? And why are there not that many female characters of varying strengths, appearance, and above all, how important to the bloody plot they are?
