And all these love-saves-the-day resolutions are Moffatt's way of working through his guilt at never getting to see his kids.

I'd like to think "love saves the day" is essentially a theme in Doctor Who, no matter which Doctor we're looking at. The thing is, this love has been skewed to the point that we only look at the romantic aspect of love, as opposed to looking a love as a positive influence that makes us want to be better than who we are right now.

None of this stops the show being very entertaining at times. But you're absolutely right, it's hollow and empty.

That's the thing, it feels hollow and empty. Look, I cried as though my best friend had died at the season finale of S1, and still refuse to watch the S2 finale because I know I will weep copious tears and be a zombie for half the day. What happened to Donna in S4 broke my heart to bits and pieces. "The Wedding of River Song" does not even feel like a finale to me, because the only thing I felt for River was a kind of disbelief that she would sacrifice the bubble universe just to keep the Doctor alive for herself.
