I'll be the first to state that some of RTD's plots were absolutely horrible, but his characterization was incredible. Moffat seems so concerned about 'clever' plot twists, that he spends no time on actual characterization so that I CARE about the plot twist and how it affects the characters.

Thanks for putting it so succinctly. In my opinion, most of the stories that I enjoyed a lot in S5 and S6 were the ones that Moffat didn't write - I loved "Vincent and the Doctor" and "The Lodger", and obviously "The Doctor's Wife", and also "The Girl Who Waited" and "The God Complex". They were lovingly written by people who actually cared about the characters, and not plot for plot's sake. I agree that RTD's writing had some duds ("Love and Monsters", anyone?) but even until now, I can look back and say, "They were great stories." :)
