Very few writers can pull off shocking well, and yet 100% of them think they're going to be the next Red Wedding (which wasn't even the show writers, lol, GRRM wrote that).

Even when it's written well, it still often falls flat with fans. We don't like it, lol. And not in an edgy way - we really just don't like it.

Doctor Who is a bit of an entity unto itself, because it builds in an expectation for the entire cast to change every few seasons.

Oh, he was great. But I’ve really enjoyed them all (well, from Nine on, which is what I’ve seen).

I'm easy when it comes to DW, I guess. But most shows just aren't set up like that.

Most times, viewers get attached to characters. Which should be what you want as a writer, lol.

If you have a character and a relationship that has endured with audiences over 15 years, it is insane to just throw that away.
