Re: Latent Image

Not a very good episode, but I think the basic premise makes some sense, even if the 'Erased memory' thing doesn't make any sense at all.

If I were in a situation where I had two people whose life I could save and I could only pick one, I would probably go with the one I'm closer to also, and I'd feel totally shitty about it afterward. But the Doctor was programmed with the edict never to take a life, and he was put in a situation where life and death was strictly his arbitrary judgment call.

I totally understand a feedback loop being created between his expanded personality and his base ethical programming.
