I hope this was enough time to let Jesse Abbe calm down, following their own advice. They were the only one using profanities and I hope it will not happen again (more on this later).
Jesse Abbe is, of course, entitled to their opinion. So do equally Icecreamdif and Gomez Capulet. When, however, opinions of different users come into conflict, it falls on me to moderate among them and decide who was right. In this case, there is no doubt that Gomez Capulet and Icecreamdif were right to point out that Jesse Abbe's response was off topic. This matter is closed, and no more discussions of past or present incarnations should appear in this thread.
Unfortunately, in the heat of the moment Jesse Abbe went a bit further than a polite person should. They called a post of another user "bullshit". This is very close to a personal attack. Please read carefully our policy at https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Tardis%3ANo_personal_attacks.
Since you are a new user, since this is a borderline case and since this offence was against me rather than any other user, I will let it slide this time. You can disagree with others and call their opinions wrong. But calling these opinions "bullshit" (or "crap" as in an example in the policy) will not be tolerated. Please, be civil when disagreeing with others.
With that and with an apology to the OP for the deviation from the topic, I would ask everyone to return to the topic at hand, namely, the number of remaining incarnations of the Doctor.
As a mod of this forum, I assure you that you did not do anything really horrible, but should avoid going off topic in the future. Thank you for you future cooperation.
No, the question was about the number of regenerations left, not about the gender of past or present regenerations. Please, do not steer off topic.
Here is another demonstrably incomplete yet gargantuan effort, unaffiliated with the Tardis wiki: doctorwhoorder.com/reading_order.php

@WhoLife: You keep assigning words meanings that are far removed from their dictionary definitions. Your understanding of identitarian does not seem to have a basis in fact (just like your earlier description of the current situation with racism in the UK, which was quickly disproved by statistics). Your comparison of white nationalism with black nationalism similarly demonstrates your lack of knowledge of what black nationalism is. It turns out that your controversial opinion about this episode is born out of, forgive me for saying so, ignorance.
Now, generally, we mods do not interfere even when users post opinions not rooted in fact. After all, we are mostly talking about fictional accounts, so no hard feelings. Here, you steered the discussion into hot waters of current politics and, despite my multiple nudges, refused to leave them. And the combination of untruths and misinterpretations with an explosive and sensitive topic is something that has, sadly, become all too common. There are many places where people throw labels at each other without much care for what they mean. This is not one of them.
You already tried to insult one of Doctor Who creators. To prevent users from starting calling each other names, I put an end to this discussion. And next time you want to insult a person, try to do research on what your insult means first.
@WhoLife! I was hesitant to force everyone back to the matter at hand. However, after you yourself admitted that the discussion went off topic, it is clearly time to get back on.
In addition, while it was not clear from your original post, it is now apparent that you completely misuse the term "identitarian" (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identitarian_movement). It is highly unlikely that Blackman would turn out to be a white nationalist as you suggest.
Thus, I strongly advise once again to return to discussing things we know best, i.e., Doctor Who.
@WhoLife! I'm glad you have realised yourself that your comment about "UK racism" and "identitarians" effectively steered the discussion into talking about real life rather than Doctor Who. Whichever problems the UK goes through, this is, indeed, not the place to discuss them. Please from now on stick to discussing the episode. Discussing real life should be done only inasmuch as it is related to the episode. I do not believe there was any mention, for instance, of "identitarians" in "Rosa," so they should not have been part of this discussion.
Let us not rely on anecdotal evidence. Here is the official government statistics and conclusions:
1. In 2017/18, there were 94,098 hate crime offences (258 hate crimes per day on average) recorded by the police in England and Wales, an increase of 17% compared with the previous year .
2. The number of hate crimes recorded by the police more than doubled since 2012/13 (part of the reason is better documentation of these crimes).
3. There has been spikes in hate crime following certain events such as the EU Referendum and the terrorist attacks in 2017.
4. Race hate crimes constituted 76% of these hate crimes.
The important thing is not to edit the wiki based on your personal canon. People should not start removing information from wiki pages based on this discussion. Otherwise, it's all good. Carry on! Allons-y!
Everyone is free to establish their own head canon.
However, to avoid any misunderstandings, I would like to briefly outline the official stance of the Tardis wiki, which must be complied with whenever the wiki is edited. Influenced in part by an essay by Paul Cornell, the wiki has decided to abandon the notion of canon completely. Instead all properly licensed stories are divided into valid and invalid ones, irrespective of any mutual contradictions. Only valid stories inform this wiki's view of the Doctor Who Universe.
Further, valid stories need not have a Doctor Who license. According to British copyright practices, in many cases story authors retained copyright for characters, species, etc. introduced in these stories. Perhaps, the most well known example of this is the character of Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, who is not owned by BBC but rather by the Haisman Literary Estate. Accordingly, stories about the Brig published under their license are generally considered valid without having a Doctor Who license.
Hi, admin here. Thank you for contacting us. We will investigate and make additions provided we find an independent verification. Unfortunately, it is against the policy of the wiki to base edits about a person on the words of the said person. In this respect, our approach is more encyclopedic.
Well, it would be hard to have the rest of Torchwood 3 team post-Miracle Day, seeing as all but Gwen are dead by then. They do all appear in the monthly Torchwood audios, of course.
Shhh! You're supposed to say "the Scottish play"!!!
Are they indeed?
And yes, the title is indeed an allusion to the writings of one best-selling author who still manages to shake the audience, even after all these years. What can I say? I can never resist anything Scottish.
