Doctor Who Ghostlight synopsis size[edit]

--Dr zoidberg590 (talk) 13:15, 8 October 2017 (UTC) Who is it that decides that a synopsis is too detailed? What is the negative of a detailed synopsis. If I do not get a reply I will remove that erroneous banner once more.

A rule of thumb is that it should be between 400-700 words long. Follow the link in the tag for more information. DonQuixote (talk) 14:06, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Regeneration (Doctor Who)[edit]

Hi there,

This article is inconsistent regarding the formatting of episode titles. It seems generally that titles of single episodes are enclosed with speech marks while titles referring collectively to several episodes are written in Italics (including the New Who story, The End of Time). Is this intentional or just coincidental? However even if this is the rule the article is following it isn't itself uniformly adhered to, as many classic series serial titles are themselves enclosed with speech marks, such as "Destiny of the Daleks". Whatever the case I just think the article should at least be consistent with itself.

Thanks - 81.106.25.114 (talk) 23:04, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Short works, like single episodes, are in quotation marks. Long works, such as multi-episode serials, are in italics. It's a common rule for works of fiction (such as poems, short works, and novels, long works). Works like Destiny of the Daleks should be in italics, but some people keep changing them to quotes because they're ignorant of the rules. They should be changed back to italics.

The research project itself can't be cited, however if the results are published in an academic journal then the paper can be cited. DonQuixote (talk) 21:06, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
