Good grief, lighten up. I'm just playing with words, because it's fun.
I'm sorry, I didn't realize that you were joking.
I'm not joking. I'm just engaged in a light-hearted exploration of ideas because I find it interesting, rather than trying to be "pedantic" or judgmental. It's just an abstract philosophical conversation with nothing at stake. I see that as recreation, not confrontation.

And, of course, we have no way of knowing when stories with no apparent links to Earth like The Keys of Marinus and The Krotons and so on are set, so they could be before 1963 for all we know! Which would make them non-Earth historicals!

[Sorry, couldn't resist it!]
Those certainly exist in DW - Genesis of the Daleks is a perfect example, set in the past of a planet that had previously been depicted.

I always consider The Enemy of the World a future historical but that's me.

I can see what you mean. It's set in the future, but it's a political thriller rather than something driven by a monster or an alien invasion or a technological threat (although Salamander does have some dangerous technologies at his disposal).

So have I...many times. The only City I've ever visited that just felt like a huge University campus!

Well they did already release 2 stories (Enemy and Web), I can see the possibility they might not want to blow the whole wad at once, especially if there was a scene in AAiSaT as you describe.
I want to believe this is true but I don't know why they released two stories and not three; unless Marco really did need more restoration and they decided not to put all their eggs in one basket.
No telling, but why did they keep the find a secret all through the recovery and restoration process right up until they released it? They were virtually lying about it. The whole thing was odd.

That doesn't mean Marco Polo was found, but keeping it a secret wouldn't be unusual for the BBC!
The BBC certainly has an interesting marketing strategy: Deny that your product even exists up until the day that you release it!

For Apple, I'm sure that has a lot more to do with the innovativeness behind their products rather than the secretiveness!

That certainly used to be the case. Yet things are different now and the strategy still works.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

^ So, you're telling me that people buy Apple products now because of the secrecy? Surely it's more because they actually like Apple products!

Sure, there is some intrigue over what they'll release next. But, the secrecy isn't why people plunk down their hard-earned cash. Ultimately, they have to like the products that are released!

We digress a bit . . .

We do not. I think that, whether we're talking about Apple or Doctor Who, it's rather more complicated than "people buy things because they like them", and yes, the secrecy helps a great deal.
