the reason people were uncomfortable with the end of ‘day of the moon’ was not simply ‘the doctor would never kill anyone ever’
- the fact that the means of killing he used involved brainwashing humanity in precisely the same manner the silence had been doing; he is not taking action himself, he is using humanity to do it for him
- the fact that many people did not feel the Silence were sufficiently developed by this point to warrant this kind of action anyway; they had brainwashed humanity to… what? go to the moon? we see them kill one random woman for no apparent reason. we needed more explanation as to what threat the silence were posing to humanity to justify this kind of radical mass-murder response to them
- the fact that within the episode this conclusion is presented as triumphant and heroic with no reflection on any kind of moral quandary at all. this scene is presented as a great, clever triumph for the doctor & his friends, not as anything morally ambiguous, or even just a dark necessity. it is a victory.
- the fact that it does not come up again, and that neither the doctor nor his companions question this action in any way, even if they were to conclude it was necessary
there are a number of things this episode could have done to reframe the ending that would have left it feeling in-character and believable to me. if we had seen more reflection on this act and its gravity from the characters. if any of the characters had expressed discomfort or even second thoughts about it. if the doctor had pulled the metaphorical trigger himself instead of handing the gun to humanity. etc
pretending that (most) people were mad about this scene just because they don’t think the doctor would ever kill anyone is not the same. comparing it to the time war, which was a decision that had significant weight for the character for like 4+ years, ignores all the actual nuance of the complaint.
There are 2 very different sides of the quote market.
