The writer in charge now is Steve Moffat. Really, you can trust him.
I know it's Moffat in charge, but since he's only been lackey up till now I'm still not sure how much to trust him.
I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I'm still reserving judgment - the ol' once bitten, twice shy thing. *shrug*
When I said there was only Susan and Jenny left from the Doctor's family, I meant from the series only the Doctor and Susan were alive at the start of the show, and "now", as much as there is a now, there's also Jenny alive.
OK, I agree with you there. I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page.
... I've never seen a story written about it, but the show's planned character arc for Ace was for the Doctor to bring her to Gallifrey and use his influence (and mystery identity they kept hinting at) to get her into the Academy. ... but that's just how I like to think of her. The ending up on Gallifrey for a time, or a while, or forever, is semi-canon tho.
Ah. Gotcha. I do recall reading/seeing something about that somewhere. That's a nicer way to think of the end to Ace's story than just the sudden cutoff the series ended up having. And I do so like Ace.
