    This is the kind of thing that needs to be solved on tv, same with the time war not as comics. It’s annoying when the comics and audio books can think of better material than the show writers

      that’s because they have better writers who actually like to keep track of continuity.

      There’s a huge difference between media. Television will always be restrained by its budget.

      I agree with the previous comment in the sense that there is a difference between the media, but the difference is not due to budget but rather the target audience.

      The target audience for the TV show is much wider- i.e- the writers are not solely catering for hardcore fans. Therefore, if the writers of the TV show spend too much time keeping track of continuity and bringing back characters for the past, solely to please the fanbase, you would alienate about 70% of the audience (i.e- non-hardcore fans) from watching.

      Furthermore, I would argue that it is much harder to be original as a writer than it is to continue using past threads from previous stories, therefore often, the more original you are as a writer, the better you are. A story like Blink or Midnight works so well not because it satisfies the fans by bringing back characters from the past, but because it is ORIGINAL.

      You need to remember- writers are writing a high quality TV drama. If Doctor Who failed to keep coming up with exciting innovative ideas, it would have died a death a long time ago.
      And the last time producers and writers made the program to please the fanbase, Doctor Who died a death (aka the 1980s), so it is actually in your best interests for the writers to come up with new ideas rather than constantly bringing characters from previous storylines.
