    Perhaps a side effect was that as 12 regenerated the time line was split and the era of 13/Whitaker/Chibnall is an alternate timeline that we are leaving behind.

They can't just cut out the Whitaker era on it's own.

1) It would be a bad move politically. We all saw what happened when Steven Moffat was accused of sexism. There's be an even worse social media s$*tstorm if the only female Doctor's era was sidelined and all the male Doctors' left intact. The BBC don't want that kind of publicity.

2) It would be a tacit admission that the BBC made a mistake, and the BBC do not make mistakes,

You CAN do it, but you have to hide the fact you're doing it by sidelining earlier Doctors as well. This is the line I think RTD is going to take.

Which, as I've long said on these pages, is EXACTLY how I'd have solved the problem.

Although, my solution would have actually fixed things. RTD's solution, while fixing some things, will effectively double down on the perceived problems, and at this point I'm pretty sure that it's doomed to failure.

We'll see.
