Just come across this rumour on another forum, and although there are no actual facts or links for this rumour or to confirm it's validity, it DOES sound astonishingly typically RTD.

This is what I read:

Quote:
An alleged synopsis of Season 4's final few episodes is a MASSIVE retcon which effectively wipes out everything that's happened in New Who so far, including memory loss for all companions, allowing a clean slate for new prod. team and Doctor.



Couldn't RTD just rewind time back to before he got in the producers chair to fuck things up and give us McGann back for some proper Who before he smugs his way off to the big twat sunset on the horizon instead?

That's probably based on what we've been hearing about the last scene. As far as I'm aware, that scene related to the Doctor, Donna, and "Wilf". I don't know if it means everyone.

But we know that RTD always likes to end his seasons by going "one up" on the year before (Daleks one year, so Daleks AND Cybermen the next, for example). Last year, the ending of the cul-de-sac he'd led himself into was to wipe out the previous year. It only makes sense that, to go "one up" on that, he needs to wipe out the last four years entirely.

Yep, it sounds so typically RTD - set the reset button, and everything's OK.

How did he wipe out the events of the last year? The events of 42 for example still took place, Human Nature, The Shakespeare Code...?

They mean the narrative events in Last of the Time Twats.

The caption "One Year Later" on the screen was a clue.

How typical of a New Who fanatic to find things like plot and narrative completely unimportant, even one as straightforward as that.

Ah I misinterpreted the poster as meaning the events of the last year's series being wiped out. Apologies

Perhaps it's an indication that Davies realises how shit his New Who is.

Look on the bright side: if true, at least someone has the chance to do things differently.

No, I meant he wiped out "one year" in narrative terms not in episode terms. The ability to wipe out a year in one episode opens the precedent for RTD to wipe out the four further years if he so desires.

A bit silly if he does, but sloppy writing is something we've come to expect from RTD.

Well, bearing in mind that the "Golden Age" machine in "Invasion of the Dinosaurs" was meant to "wipe out" History as we knew it....and re-set the world back as it was "Pre-Humanity".....

...There IS some credibility and precident within the original series for a TOTAL "wipe out" solution.....

...and RTD, who specialises in "Writing himself into a Bloody Great Corner..." then reaching for the Big red "Re-Set" button....to bail him out in an instant...WOULD be well aware of this and quite likely do something along these lines.....to duly "Bail himself out".... Confused

....so that nobody in future can ever ACCUSE him of Destroying a Famous show...

...that is once the "Acid Test" of "Time" itself kicks in...and, minus all the trendy Sychophantic support and praise he gets now.... his scripts & ideas get subjected to a future FAR more harsh Critical appraisal.... Rolling Eyes

...indeed, we see the Eccleston series is already now starting to get critically "Carved up"...as it was made as long ago as 2005..............
(thus now is "Old Hat" !)...

plus, far better constructed and produced shows such as "Primeval" etc are now making RTD's efforts looked so fundamentally Flawed...

...RTD will duly need to use an "Escape plan"....like Davros in his Pod...as the...now getting Bored... Critics begin to say;
"Hang on...we have seen all this claptrap BEFORE...it's NOT NEW...actually.... it's all such Rubbish !!!
(the casting of Catherine Tate may prove a self inflicted wound too...)

...thus RTD's best plan might be....Use a Red Re-Set button...to ERASE all his drivel...and then just say it was a kind of big trendy Ecstasy trip...all so "Wonderfully Wonderfully Right" for 2005-2009.....as a most daring SURREAL "Dr.Who" version....

....which like "The Mind Robber" (which he will later claim "So influenced" his writing....yeah !)...can duly be deemed to have NEVER really occurred....

...Thus RTD Leaves it at minus all his claptrap figures...and back at the Eighth Doctor....and all ready for anyone else who might want to approach it from another angle....

...while he claims his "Abstract Offbeat" approach to "Dr.Who" ...not unlike Patrick McGoohan's ending to "The Prisoner" in 1967...was purely "Experimental" television....that worked so BRILLIANTLY....

...and expect the "Acclaim" he feels he is so rightly due....for breathing "Fresh Life" into the show's concept.... Cool

...and duly covers his back...and escapes...from the Stinging Carving up he REALLY is due for the TOTAL Bollocks he has inflicted on us since 2005.... Crying or Very sad

it IS thus a quite Possible and most feasible "Escape Plan" for RTD....to save HIS Reputation....most likely his ONLY Real concern... Shocked

Brilliant apart from the execrable music.

Great idea, hopefully the series will end with Tennant pulling off his monkey mask to reveal the manically laughing face of RTD - who then gets gunned down by machine gun fire.

Cut to Chipshop Terrace - 'Evacuate! Evacuate!' as people flee their homes to get away from their televisions.

Lol sounds like bollocks to me (surely RTD wouldnt be so kind to the incoming team), but then I think i've cried bollocks on every rumour that has thus far turned out to be true, so i'll just give Rani big kudos for that avatar ( Laughing Laughing Laughing ) and be on my way
