Sorry about the late response, Christmas happened...
I don't know, Doctor Who always felt very episodic to me, with some general arcs..sort of like a Monster of the Week, with a over-arching arc in the background.
Yes, you are absolutely right.
And while he did do Torchwood -- Torchwood had issues. Children of the Earth -- which I think was done by RT Davies (?) was better plot-wise in my opinion. Torchwood had plot-holes a plenty.
Torchwood had a million issues. ♥ ♥ ♥ Like, I couldn't even
to list them all. However, it was ALSO pure crack and (as someone put it way back when S1 first aired:
"It involves alien-hunting and
a cyborg fighting a pterodactyl
, and I am quite, quite certain that every single pairing is canon. Just watch an episode, pick any two of the main characters, and I can pretty much assure you that it's either canon or will be canon in the near future. It's just a fanfic-writer's
And it was. A fanfic writer's dream. The fic was AMAZING and the show was insane, and god I loved it so much it HURT. *sigh*
Children of Earth was amazing, but it also broke the show for good. (Yes CoE was written by RTD and one of the best things he has ever done.)
