I just found this quote from Steven Moffat about how Commander Strax died in A Good Man Goes to War and was suddenly alive again in The Snowmen:
“I did kill off Strax, and I’ve barely explained how he comes back to life - that will be a DVD extra, for those who are being pedantic - but Dan Starkey is just so bloody hilarious, you’ve got to have more of him.”
It’s as if he doesn’t even care about good story-telling
Wondering how a character dies and comes back to life is “pedantic”? God damn it Moffat.
strax is the absolute worst he’s not funny, why did he not just stay dead
i actually liked him in his first ep, and i thought his death was well done. but then he was brought back (the extra scene was literally him waking up and jenny and vastra being like ‘LOL YOU’VE BEEN ASLEEP FOR 2 DAYS NBD’, and in the snowmen eleven said a friend ‘brought him back to life’??? what is continuity.
