When looking over Steven Moffat’s own words on the era of the Seventh Doctor, he rarely has much nice to say about it. That’s kind of interesting since so much of that Doctor’s run seems to have been the template for his time as the Doctor Who showrunner. This seems to largely hold true when looking at the Moffat era Doctors and even when comparing some startling similarities between one of the favorite classic Who companions and one of the least favorite modern Who companions.
