->''"I’m no expert, but if a car had been flying around in space would you really be able to [[RagnarokProofing start its engine again]]? Who thinks up this crazy shit…oh yeah Brannon Braga! Imagine the pitch meeting ‘Okay so ''Voyager'' is cruising through space where they come across [[ARareSentence an old truck hanging in space and when they get it on board they pick up an SOS signal in Morse code from a nearby planet where Amelia Earhart is chilling out!]]’ Any reasonable person would do their best [[Series/TheApprentice Alan Sugar]] impression and say ‘you’re fired’, but no, they jumped all over it and in a way you have to [[GiftedlyBad kind of admire]] that they did. However as we head into a season that flaunts some outrageous concepts (yeah, Tom and Janeway lizard babies, I’m looking at you) this is a warning that this show is about fall off the rails...Amelia Earhart is a step too far into insanity for me -- I understand the idea was to team up two strong female explorers, but [[ExcusePlot the million hoops of logic it bypasses]] to get them together is extraordinary. There seems to be an expert on ''Voyager'' to [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat fill in the gaps of every possible plot contrivance]], and so we learn Paris loves cars and Janeway is ''au fait'' in Earhart’s story. Given that one set of aliens abducted ''Voyager'' and another set abducted Earhart and friends, does that mean there are aliens taking people all the time and Janeway is going to discover all manner of confused 20th Century mysteries in her time? 'Captain we’re picking up a distress call from an ocean planet…it’s the crew of the ''Marie Celeste''!’"''

I say it is uninteresting because it is, quite frankly, supremely easy to answer: [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS21E1WarriorsOfTheDeep}} Warriors of the Deep]] finally gave a story so bad that not even the fans could defend it (it’s telling that ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' didn’t even bother running a review of the story) that gave open ammunition to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Michael Grade]]. [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS21E7TheTwinDilemma}} The Twin Dilemma]] [[NeverLiveItDown cripples the incoming Doctor]] so that he is essentially never, ever going to be able to win the public over.

This is television. You can't expect it not to break your heart. If you expect greatness, pretty generally, you will be thwarted, just like in other mediums.\\
