Quote:To be fair, while there is a canon, it doesn't mean there is just one canon. You can make the argument that there are three different continuities: the original series, the TV movie, and the current series. For each continuity, everything that happened before is canon, but that doesn't have to mean that everything that happened after is canon. If you're a fan of the original show but hate the current series, that's fine. The new series shouldn't ruin how you feel about the old series because you can ignore the new series. The creators of the current series can also pick and choose what from the original series is canon. There's no rule that says they have to accept it all. If I recall, the current show was a few years in before the previous eight Doctors officially became canon on that show.
Yeah, I agree completely. That's exactly how I see it.
I've long felt that the new series takes place in a different continuity to the original.
If they wanted to do this junk, should have had their version of the COIE first!
