When/where did SImm say this? I'd be curious to know what he actually said about the role rather than just reading an interpretation from someone who seems to have a bias against the writer who scripted his episodes.

@The Finn If you found Dance's roles unmemorable, I dare say you just haven't watched the right ones yet. Putting aside the very recent Game of Thrones, his standout roles include the terrific 2005 BBC production of Bleak House and the Terry Pratchett/Discworld miniseries Going Postal.

@YaelMoise @wetsun More to the point, why does it need to be explained? The fact that the sixth Doctor looked just like the guard commander on Gallifrey who shot the previous Doctor was never explained, despite the fact that it was an era in the show's production history where explaining away a continuity question was seen as sufficient grounds to commission a story. Put another way, if the regime that commissioned "Attack of the Cybermen" didn't feel the need to explain the current Doctor looking exactly like a supporting character from a couple seasons back, surely the current team can do so as well.
