Was RTD unable to budget correctly as well or was there some creative reason for why we only got 4 eps that one year?

That had something to do with David Tennant playing Hamlet that year, I think.

So I was lying in bed at 3AM last night and I came up with the final argument that this trilogy is complete poo poo. In Extremis, we saw a simulated world, with a simulated Doctor, and that Doctor is blind just like the real one. Except that the Doctor was blinded in an accident on a space station orbiting a mining colony a zillion light years away. So in order to know that the Doctor was blind, the simulation had to include that space station.

So, instead of a computer which simulates the Earth and all humans down to the atom- which strains credibility a lot- we have a computer which models the entire universe, which is completely loving impossible.

You don't know how the monks created the simulation. Maybe they scanned every atom of the planet and made a disk image on their giant quantum space hard drive they could mount on their holodeck, which would have copied the Doctor's blindness since it's a physical trait.

Extremis is a cool episode if you can handwave that bit, shame about the next two.
