Why do we have both this and Franchise / Doctor Who Expanded Universe? Let's settle on one and cut the other. (I vote for Franchise / Doctor Who Expanded Universe .)

Because Expanded Universe does not apply for any of the works in the primary medium. None of the TV spinoffs are expanded universe, they're just spinoffs.

In the case of SJA and Torchwood at least, they explicitly overlap with the TV series too in both early 21st century setting as well as some of the writers.

I agree that it implies there's some conspiracy about "primary canon", but Expanded Universe is just "anything not in the original or primary media".
