I'm not quite sure about Novus Wulf's DMOS, but do you think maybe the Doctor Who episode "Nightmare in Silver" wasn't exactly a ripoff from "Warhammer 40,000". I think both the Doctor Who episode and Warhammer 40,000 just happened by coincidence.

  • Novus Wulf: How has Nightmare in Silver gone unmentioned? The episode shows signs of running out of ideas when the whole Imperium is unashamedly ripped straight from Warhammer 40,000 - "Punisment Platoon" being a nice rewording of Penal Squad, the soldiers clearly dressed like classic Cadians and armed with Lasguns, and they even have a goddamned Emperor (who mercifully is NOT a corpse on a Golden Throne, thank god)! However, where I really take umbridge with this episode is what it did to the Cybermen. It's something Moffat and team have been doing for a while now - first the Daleks being changed from a Nazi Allegory to "they take love and replace it with hate" or some other BS, but now they've turned the Cybermen into a carbon copy of the Borg! Weren't the Borg Cybermen ripoffs? At any rate, the sheer amount of Plagiarism going on and the absolutely awful reimaging of the Cybermen makes this episode my new low point. Oh, and those insufferable, terribly acting kids (who were to some credit at least out of the way for most of the running time). Good god Moffat and friends was this awful.

Also, I posted my positive backup to Tyler FG's DMOS on The Day of the Doctor.

Update- @Telcontar: Oh, alright. I'm sorry. I just wanted point out some of the evidences that Steven Moffat didn't ignore The End of Time continuity.

Not so cool. Natter isn't allowed, and DMOS pages have particularly strict rules about not contesting entries. I've removed the paragraph.

Hello. I just want to let everybody know that I posted my DMOS for a Doctor Who New Series because I was quite surprised nobody mentioned the episode "Father's Day":

There's 10 entries on this page. Is that really enough to have its own page?

One of the other Live Action shows that have their own pages had 13 entries. I figured to do the same thing for Dr. Who.

For what it's worth, I actually thought 10 entries was enough for a work to have its own Dethroning Moment page. But based on the other live action pages, I used 13 as a benchmark.
