RTD seemed to think so
He did? These are the quotes I'm familiar with:

That canon "is a word which has never been used in the production office, not once, not ever" (DWM #356).

That he was "usually happy for old and new fans to invent the Complete History of the Doctor in their heads, completely free of the production team's hot and heavy hands." (DWM #356)

That thinking of the audios as being 'non-canonical' is boring and idiotic. (The Writer's Tale)

That "I'm just the writer [...] I've got no more authority over the text than you!" (DWM #388)

(from this excellent post)

as per example the US version of Queer as Folk, which is arguably the best thing RTD ever created.
Huh. Interesting. Haven't seen either version, so can't comment.

We've had so many different versions of who has been running Humanity's history you can imagine committee meetings with everyone trying to discern what the hell The Silence are meaning with their enigmatic stares this time :-)
Indeed. Or as Moffat put it once:

"It is impossible for a show about a dimension-hopping time traveller to have a canon."
