My friend thinks he is, but I think RTD is better. If you agree with her, reboot this. If you agree with me, reboot this post: http://hiscumbercollective.tumblr.com/post/49904375113/reblog-if-you-think-rtd-is-a-better-writer-than-moffat
Moffat is the better writer and show runner by far. I hated all of RTDs characters, save Donna - she was pretty cool.
RTD was irrationally emotional and generally shallow in his plots. Moffat on the other hand writes with complexity and reason.
I’d love to hear the arguments for either side.
