Complicated is bad. It means small children get completley lost becuase they're small children, and older people are too old to understand it at all. I don't like having to work to understand a script.
Douglas Adams, one time script-editor/script-writer for Doctor Who, famously said his goal with the series was to make it complicated enough for the children to be interested but simple enough for the adults to understand. I completely see his point now...


I loved Journeys End. It was a piece of art.

Thankfully the writer of the abhorrent Rise of the Cybermen redeemed himself with my favourite New Who episode to date, The Girl Who Waited.
Eh, RotC/TAoS was heavily rewritten by RTD after MacRae's more Spare Parts-inspired drafts so I'm not surprised he could produce quality work once, y'know, his material actually reached the screen.
