Let's not throw the book on the ice Edit

First of all, let's not delete the page. It is clearly seen in the story that the Doctor holds a book, an old book with blank/illegible cover. So there is a reason to create a page for this book that the Doctor reads from.

Secondly, the book is identifiable by the extended passage read by the Doctor. Having Book (Thin Ice) would be much less informative than the current name. In particular, when another mention of the book in DWU is found, the "No title" page name is likely to prevent the identification of the two. So let's keep the title. See also another case where real world bleed into the page title is preferable to using dab terms.

But, since the book's title has not yet been found in DWU, it cannot be used in the "in-universe" part of the page. It should all go to the "Behind the scenes" part. Amorkuz 22:01, May 1, 2017 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for the great rework of my article. I thought the pure read out of the clearly recognizable passage was enough to identify and verify the book title. Well, apparently not. I'll keep it in my mind for the next time. --Phoenixclaw ~ Memory Alpha 13:50, May 2, 2017 (UTC)
