Probably, but it's such a cop out. Basically it's just saying "or it only matters what the writer wants to do." which it is, but it also leads to unsatisfying stories. At least for me.
You can write time travel stories with a rigid set of rules, but you won't end up with anything that looks or feels like Doctor Who.
Don't need hard and fast rules, just this ending feels so unsatisfying when they've already had 3 decent jumping off points in their relationship with the Doctor that were more satisfying and just the week before they had another opportunity to call it a day in a way that would have left them in a good place without any of this convoluted nonsense.
