Why did they make the Series 11 one so different if they were just going to bring the 12th series Steelbook back to the similar style that they’ve had for series 1-5?Doesn't look too bad but will look quite out of place with the rest of the collection, not that they have much continuity anyway
Still, after watching S11 and from what I've heard of S12, I can't bring myself round to picking this up for £50. Will be the first DW steel i'll be waiting for a price drop on

I actually really liked the design for the S11 steel so was looking forward to something else along those lines. But as you've said, they appear to have reverted back to the designs of the earlier series. Wouldn't mind it so much if they kept designs consistent per regeneration but the styles are changing too much if this is how they're going to continueWhy did they make the Series 11 one so different if they were just going to bring the 12th series Steelbook back to the similar style that they’ve had for series 1-5?
And I, like you, don’t think I’ll be getting this.
Series 11 was a rough patch, but I was willing to blame that on growing pains with it being a new series show runner. Although from what I hear, Series 12 is even worse.
When someone says that they’re not a fan of “PC stuff” my response is always to reply with, “No, you’re just a fan of bad writing”. xDI actually really liked the design for the S11 steel so was looking forward to something else along those lines.

My friend is a huge DW fan and he says that it's an improvement over S11 but I wouldn't count on it being much better. I got really fed up with S11 shoving all the PC stuff in your face and at least once an episode there'll be some line to remind you that the Doctor is now a woman. Hope they've toned that down
Apparently the hostility has been astonishing. The BBC has been swamped by fans complaining about that and other aspects of Dr Who. The BBC reply has been simply "We don't give a ****, we hold you to ransome with the licence fee and can do what we want"Jesus
£50 so you can see Chris Chibnall ruin and retcon 50 years worth of lore by taking one small plot point in the old who people have tried to forget about and made it canon
I mean Doctor Who has never been big on itself following its own continuity. But, like the laws of physics- oversights and sidesteps like this are brushed aside with “this shouldn’t be possible but here it is” type of explaination. And I’m okay with that. Listen- rules shouldn’t hinder the enjoyment you have for the show. If there’s a really good idea that contradicts some other pre-established notion- it’s a shame to let that idea go to waste.For once I'm on the BBC side
Well it does matter. What happened totally contradices the classic show. The shows no longer gel. NU-Who and Classic Who have become totally different shows that have nothing in common. Nu-Who when it started was still recognisable as the classic show. At some point (take your pick) Nu Who has become a completely different show which has alienated (no pun intended) a lot of fans. That's never a good idea. I'm no Einstein but i'd say the show is now dead both as a TV show and as a commercial property.Regardless of what your opinions are on that episode you can still watch and enjoy whatever your Doctor who era is your era and enjoy it. The implications don't change what has already happened from the very first episode till now. The three doctors still happened, logopalis still happened, trial of a timelord still happened, the time war and after effects still happened. The battle of canary wharf still happened as did journeys end. River song still happened (sadly)
