I've said it before and I'll say it again-- people just take this show WAY too seriously sometimes. It's one thing to be fans, but I don't think the show was ever meant to be dissected like the freakin Zapruder film. Lol
Exactly, one of the things that I always loved about Doctor Who is that it was always a fun romp of a show that never took itself too seriously. Sure, there were intelligent, serious, quality stories, but nobody--creators or fans--seemed to pay much attention to the nitty minutiae that hangs up so many other franchises.
