    As always, an interesting set of points of view, nicely laid out and discussed.

    I think Erika expressed most of the points I’ve been mulling over since the news came out, though she expressed them way better than I would have done.

    I do worry that Jodie’s last season is going to be overshadowed by this, which absolutely isn’t fair.

    As regards the moving to Sunday thing, I’m not sure I agree that it was a loss of prestige on the show’s part. Sunday night remains THE premium drama timeslot on UK TV, it’s when shows like Downtown Abbey, Call the Midwide, Midsomer Murders, or Call of Duty air. Saturday night is reality-tv and gameshow night, Sunday night is for Drama (and, alas, for more Reality TV too, I suppose).

    Doctor Who getting that was as close to a promotion as it could get, and stood it in better stead than the almost absurdly late slot on Saturday did I think, certainly in terms of family viewing.

    But then again, I’m probably out of touch on such matters.

  2. Oh fuck. RTD killed off Gallifrey. Moffat brought it back. Chibnall killed it off again. RTD will…?

      Tapdance on it’s grave?

      Dig the Time Lords up to make sure they’re REALLY dead

      Drop obscure hints in a year long arc that they might not ALL be dead, to reveal in the season finale that the messages aren’t from the Master as everyone suspected, but the Meddling Monk, who actually IS dead, but had left annoying messages across time and space just to mess with the Doctor’s head because he really IS that petty and spiteful?

  3. So how did Steven Moffatt troll RTD? You mention it in passing, but I’m not as plugged into online Whotalk, and Google is no help. Links? Or at least some indication of what was said?

    • When RTD made the announcement on Instagram, Moffat replied fairly quickly with “RTD must go!”
