"And this is part of being a Doctor Who fan. You are absolutely guaranteed to see the show die in front of you, and then get replaced with a strange, different show using the same name. Eventually, everything that Doctor Who is comes to a crashing halt and something new happens instead. Sometimes it’s wonderful. Sometimes it’s heartbreaking. But it’s inevitable. It’s why one of the few sections of fandom I get actively angry at are the “bring back David Tennant” crowd. Because, frankly, you only got David Tennant because nine previous versions of the show got cancelled. You knew your turn would come. You don’t get to pull a version of the show other people enjoy away from them and replace it with your own. If you did, we’d bring Ian, Barbara, and the Doctor back."
