The lovely [personal profile] ruthct21 commented on a post of mine yesterday (more in sorrow than in anger, I think) that she was going to have to avoid reading my stuff if I wasn't more careful about spoilers for Doctor Who, as she's somewhere in South America and hasn't seen the new episode yet. This came as something of a surprise to me, because I thought I had been pretty careful about spoilers when posting about Doctor Who... But then it occurred to me that Ruth and I might have very different definitions of what constitutes a spoiler. SO:

By contrast, I thought it was unfair a couple of years ago when a person on my reading list got yelled at by somebody for mentioning the name of a well-known actor who was a guest cast member, who had never appeared on Who before and was playing a single-episode character of no continuity relevance.
