"Heaven Sent" / "Hell Bent"[edit]

In this video[1] Rachel Talalay calls "Heaven Sent" and "Hell Bent" a two-parter, and she is the director so she would know. The production team clearly think of the episodes as a two-parter, Rachel Talalay would not have called the episodes a two-parter if they were not officially designated as such. As well as this, the video is newer than issue 495 of DWM, it was posted on YouTube on 21 January 2016 (it was originally posted on the official website on 12 January 2016[2]), DWM issue 495 was released 7 January 2016, meaning that this video is the most up to date source we have, it is the most recent statement on the official designation of the episodes, and one of the justifications of using DWM as a source in the previous discussion was that it was the most up to date source, which it isn't. We have to go by the most up to date source, there is no justification for going by an older source which is contradicted by the most recent source. Fan4Life (talk) 11:26, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Agreed that they form a two parter, but which part of the article are you wanting modified? --Liam McM (Talk|Contribs) 11:48, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Well it's not specifically this article, I originally started a discussion on the Series 9 page but after 2 weeks it was still only between 2 users including myself, and I was advised by User:AlexTheWhovian to bring it here as more users are more likely to have this page on their watchlist. We can take this discussion back the the Series 9 page if you so wish. Fan4Life (talk) 11:58, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Please add Pearl Mackie in the "Various Companions as of" section as she was confirmed as the new companion. Thanks. 94.7.47.248 (talk) 18:23, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

She hasn't appeared in any episodes yet. DonQuixote (talk) 18:51, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Article listed Dr. Who Chronology[edit]

Hey all Who fans. Quite some time ago there was a really awesome article that had columns listing every serial of Doctor Who, the Doctor who appeared in it, the year of production, and the year the story was set in. The columns could be ordered chronologically so a "non-time traveler" could see which doctors were crossing paths in which years. For instance, when one of the more recent doctors witnesses the JFK shooting, this is just a few days before the First Doctor sends Susan to school in the Earthly Child. Very cool article but can't locate it using the search engines. does anyone remember this? Is it still on Wikipedia? -O.R.Comms 20:49, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

It was original research so it was removed as per tertiary works, like an encyclopaedia. DonQuixote (talk) 21:03, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Is it still in the article history? -O.R.Comms 21:10, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
There is no article (deleted), so there's no article history. DonQuixote (talk) 03:45, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
OberRanks you might check the Tardis Wikia. I don't know if they have a version os what used to be here or not. MarnetteD|Talk 05:22, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
@OberRanks: The page originally resided at List of Doctor Who serials by setting; you can find the discussion for the deletion of the article at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Doctor Who serials by setting, and at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Doctor Who/Archive 29#Proposed move of List of Doctor Who serials by setting. The page itself is archived on the Wayback Machine site here. Alex|The|Whovian? 05:34, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Logos Nominated for Deletion[edit]

Just a heads up. I noticed this has popped up [3]. Would some of these images might do with a better fair use rationale? Cheers, Dresken (talk) 11:24, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

They're all public domain in the US, so if Commons deletes them, they can be uploaded locally with {{PD-ineligible-USonly|United Kingdom}}. No need for a fair use rationale. —Cryptic 22:19, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Two of them might be a bit outside TOO (the ones with gradient effects in the letters.) but there are equivalent "flat" versions of both in the set so this is not a major issue. --MASEM (t) 23:32, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
