I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick idiots drooling over the Doctor.
It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.
When I first moved out of my grandfather’s house, I gave this homeless person ten dollars when I just meant to give him one, and when I asked for it back everyone hissed and booed at me and I felt so violated and vulnerable.

do you have a girlfriend? girlfriend? no, not really my area. oh right then. do you have a boyfriend? which is fine by the way. i know its fine. so you’ve got a boyfriend? no. right. okay. you’re unattached like me. fine. good.
i read this and my first thought was “haha one of those ‘awkward flirting’ funny text posts” and then i realized this was an actual conversation from the first episode of sherlock
things sherlock did for john:

- survived tortures in serbia and quite possibly other countries
- ran straight into the fire
- agreed to be john’s best man even though his heart was breaking during the whole ceremony
- let john live his new life even if that…
