A professional script reader read 300 screenplays for five different studios, all the while tracking the many recurring problems. The infographic he made with the collected data offers a glimpse at where screenwriting goes wrong.

this is important even if you don’t write scripts
This is exceedingly important to all storytellers

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]
People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.
People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.
Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.
He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.
Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.
Nine was the Doctor who took a renegade Time Agent who thought of nothing but himself and making money and nearly cause ‘Volcano Day’ because he wanted to make a fast buck — and turned him into a man who was ready to lay down his life in order to give Nine and Rose those few extra minutes.
Nine was the Doctor who truly made Jack Harkness the man we saw throughout his few Who appearances and Torchwood.
Nine was the Doctor Jack fell in love with and never truly got over. I’ve said a few times that I want to see Jack back in Doctor Who. Now? I’m not so sure. Or, maybe, Jack reappearing in the Who-canon is what we need. They don’t need the Impossible Girl to bring Twelve back to who he is. To make him remember. To help him not be scared.
What Twelve needs is the Face of Boe. The Man out of Time.
Captain Jack Harkness.YES TO ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Okay, this takes up too much text for a submit. So I’m gonna just write it out here.
So somebody lightened up the screenshots of the pizzaria, what we found was this.
That is not an animatronic fully clothed, that is an endoskeleton hanging out in the bathroom. So…

My design aesthetic is tentacles. Tentacles everywhere.

one thing I love about bioshock 2 is thinking about how it would look to an observer
a big daddy carefully feeding money into a vending machine
a big daddy rooting through ashtrays with his enormous hands
a big daddy holding an audio diary up to his helmet, just listening
a big daddy drinking like 6 bottles of sander’s absinthe and stumbling around drunk breaking everything he bumps into
Harry Potter au where Harry didn’t lose being a parsletongue and Albus buys a snake as a pet one year because snakes are cool and one day just walks in on Harry and the snake having a deep conversation

- Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
- Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that
