They made such a huge point of the reveal that there is no way to just back out of it, they would look ridiculous, and be shown as being less than competent.
What they may opt do is just not refer to it again, to just move on and let some time pass, and then slowly reintegrate the status-quo - Timelord from Gallifrey, ran away with Tardis, etc etc.
Quote:Of course a snag there is that they annihilated Gallifrey. Annihilated it on the back of Steven Moffat bringing it back from its previous annihilation... and then there is the Ruth-Doctor to clear up.
Of course, they already are ridiculous. BBC could still decide to undo Chibnall's nonsense. If enough of the british public is offended enough, they could be making the ptb at bbc fear for their jobs.
Quote:So on balance there is no easy way to just let it all drop, Chris Chibnall has shown he struggles for original and interesting ideas and has put a good deal of his hopes and plotting into this new mythology, so whatever happens next season we won't be seeing him unwind his own retcon, not in one bound anyway.
After that last season, these type of events might be the only way to still have the real Dr appear!
