  1. I’m afraid i’m a fellow passenger in Warren’s ship of unenthusiasm for John Wiles’ contribution to Doctor Who overall regardless of Shapansky and Hadokes’ admirable efforts to convince me of it’s merits.You can tell me the boat will sink,if you want to but.. if Wiles did really have an agenda to make Doctor Who more adult science fiction,then why did he produce so many historical dramas and comedies?I never get the sense he has any affinity for the programme or was proud of it and i have no respect or understanding at all for his disposable attitude to the actors who worked for him.I don’t especially want to be negative but i can’t approve.
