This hastily-Photoshopped lameness was inspired by the fantastic Big Finish audio drama, 1001 Nights, in which the Fifth Doctor is slowly being replaced by an alien that psychically assumes the identity of another being. That alien is played by Alexander Siddig. By the final episode the process is complete, and suddenly you have Fifth Doctor Bashir.

I like the way it seems a bit different from the usual Miyazaki graphic style.

Right, so the poster wanted to know why is it OK for RTD to destroy Gallifrey, but not OK for Moffat to bring it back, and I explained that it wasn’t the act of bringing back Gallifrey that was so wrong, it was doing it by inserting his own version of events in another writer’s work.
In this post, I’ll delve into all the ways TDotD did it wrong (and that’s where it’ll get long, but you asked for it hahaha), but first:
Why destroying Gallifrey was a good decision
First, as a curiosity, here’s what Steven Moffat said in 1999 when questioned on how a hypothetical return of Doctor Who should be carried out:
"I’d chuck out all gratuitous continuity because it’s dull — and all that yawn-inducing Gallifrey rubbish with it. I don’t care where the Doctor came from or why he travels around the universe — I just want him out of those TARDIS doors and having adventures. Us kids want Narnia, not the wardrobe."
I came out to attack people and I’m honestly having such a good time right now
I had a script I was trying to sell, trying to get made, and they bought it. Which was great, but then I spent a year with them working on it, and they decided not to do it. They decided while I was in the air. I’d been back and forth with them, and they said “Yes, it’s going to happen,” and I flew to New York thinking we were going to start casting.
The driver took me down to Tribeca and he said, “Shall I wait for you?” I said, “No, I think we’ll probably go out, have champagne and that.” And I gave him a big tip, and went in and got sacked, more or less. And then they said, “Your car is still here.” I was so shocked, I was just sort of laughing, and the driver asked me what happened, and I explained to him.
As I left the car when he dropped me off, he gave me the tip back. That was sweet. I gave it back, but I thought that was so kind. I was thinking “Jesus, I’ve got no money, I’ve got nothing, I’ve got no future. It’s all over.” And he gave me the tip back.
His name was Ralph. Thank you, Ralph, for that."
