Yeah okay, let's go.

I've got nothing better to do than to debate the inanity of classic sci-fi programmes.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Doctor Who might be a classic British television Sci-Fi show, however the show does have inherent bad. Here is why:

Plots make no scents

Most seasons have many episodes where they pretty much have the same plot as previous ones but only different companions

It is British

Good Day, mate!
Delinquent

Con

I will respond to the points at face value:

"The plots make no scents"

If you were looking for the programme to produce some sort of odour, then that's perhaps more a reflection on you than it is on the show.

"Most seasons have many episodes where they pretty much have the same plot ... but only different companions"

You can't criticise a show for continuity. I'd be pretty angry if the Doctor just morphed into a talking giraffe in order to break up the action.

Great Britain. Take the hint.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had BoP, here. Pro made some unsupported assertions. Con rebutted them. This debate was too short to give Pro any further chance to salvage his arguments. Thus, arguments to Con. I didn't think it worth awarding S&G for the mistake Pro made, and neither did I think it worth awarding conduct for Con's joke at Pro's expense. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made unsupported arguments that Con effectively rebuffed. Argument points Con. Spelling and Grammar points to Con. Conduct against Con for needless sniping at a spelling mistake.
