Moffat’s Women - Nancy
Nancy is an assertive and caring young woman - a leader, who the homeless children of London look up to with absolute trust. Whether it is using the air raids for a nice meal, forcing Mr Lloyd to let her go after being caught, or singing a transformed soldier to sleep, she is incredibly resourceful and quick on her feet. As a teenage single mother, Nancy has her demons and secrets. But when push comes to shove, she faces them proudly and it is her bravery that saves the world on that day in January 1941.
but, you know, Moffat is clearly sexist.
I think Nancy is a great character. But did you know that Moffat thought it was a funny joke to call her a “slut” in the DVD commentary for The Doctor Dances? Hey, she’s had a child, therefore she’s had sex, therefore she’s a slut, and obviously what the Doctor should do once he finds that out is proposition her. Ha ha ha.
You can write the occasional good female character and still be sexist.
did you also know that rtd heavily edited the scripts?
did you also know that nobody ever said that moffat fuck up 100% of the time?
Did you also know that RTD specifically stated that he never touches Moffat’s scripts?
