Save the Doctor: Rose and Clara — More Importantly, Davies and Moffat
I’ll preface this by saying that I don’t think everything Moffat does is terrible, and I’m the kind of fan that’s pretty willing to go along for the ride and see where the writer is trying to take me.

(Spoilers for The Name of the Doctor below the cut.)
“Moffat’s companions lose the story of individual potential for greatness by serving as accessories to the plot, rather than the plot serving as their stage. Their importance feels contrived. And the Doctor consistently treats companions as mysteries to be investigated and solved, instead of people to admire and learn from.”
You hit the nail on the head. :/
