The Doctor used to be someone kids could grow up with, and look up to. What happened? Oh, right.
Can we please just spread this across the internet like wildfire?
Look, I am sick and tired of this Moffat hate. Sure, his writing is dickish sometimes, and it’s downright evil the way he writes cliffhangers, but that is not what is happening here.
Amy and Rory and River are all PERFECTLY CAPABLE of taking care of themselves. At that point, the Doctor has come to terms with the fact that he can’t protect everyone (see, Master) and has moved on.
And I mean come on. Mickey was an idiot anyway. He needed someone to protect him. Sure, by the end Rose was independent, but she still relied on the Doctor for a lot.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IS NOT DONE TO PLEASE YOU BUT IF YOU LOOK DEEPER IT KIND OF IS.
Everyone wanted a strong female character— AMY. But I suppose no one was mature enough to see the effects it may have on the characters around her.
STOP THE MOFFAT SHAME. PLEASE.
