To just throw out a single 60 min episode and call that your 50th Anniversary is a slap in the face and showing no respect to this show.
I agree with this. Though, I want to add that I don't think there are any "bad guys" in this story. I think the BBC cares and Moffat definitely cares.
It appears to be a combination of budgetary problems and mismanagement. They can at least fix the mismanagement and get a regular production going at whatever rate they can afford. Whether the BBC has the leadership to actually do this, I don't know!
They had years to plan for this and save up some money. So if this is something they really wanted to do, they could of made it happen.
Doctor Who feels like a Stepchild to the BBC.
That awkward moment when your killed by you wife, in front of your wife, who then precedes to kill your wife, while your best friend is off to the side pregnant with your wife. Doctor Who!
