Actually, here's a way of putting it that, of all of the people I know, will probably only make sense to you.
You know, on Farscape, the writers had a motto? "When you get punched on Farscape, it hurts."
I feel like for the last couple of years--and especially with this past episode--the motto of Doctor Who has been, "When you get punched on Doctor Who, don't worry, in a few episodes it will be revealed that you were never punched, you only dreamed you were punched, and all the pain has been psychosomatic."
I don't want that. I want to trust the show not to fuck with me, and not to fuck with the characters.
