Doctor Who "Canon"

phoenixredux asked some question about whether something in Doctor Who was "canon" or not, and I thought about this article:

http://paulcornell.blogspot.com/2007/02/canonicity-in-doctor-who.html

which I then had to dig up again. It talks about Doctor Who canon or lack thereof, but also it explains the nature of "canon" as it relates to fiction, and how "canon" has meaning in some fictional universes and not so much in others. Very interesting.

Doctor who never really bothered to keep track of these sorts of things very well, as I'm sure she said. DW is a wonderful mess in many ways, part of why I enjoy it, but it would have been nice to see it done right at some point.
