"Adric was the second Doctor Who regular to be killed by the Cybermen, the first being, of course, the First Doctor."

He’s not exactly wrong, though. Sure the Doctor would have pretty much keeled over regardless of what adventure came after The Smugglers, the Cybermen were still effectively the straw that did it.
silvanoir said: Do I want Moffat involved? no. God no. Do I want the series made? YES. Big yes.
And thus stands the great problem otherwise known as “This is why we can’t have nice things”. Because the people in charge are the very same people who will fuck it up so bad that having it from them is likely worse than not having it at all.
For me at least given the best case scenario is that it’s inevitably going to have be remediated via fanon, I’d rather just cut out the pain and go straight to that.
