    Cheers! HNY to yourself too, and all the other masochists who come here to read my increasingly deluded ravings.

    The workers from Androzani here were treated as reliable old workers whose actions in and of themselves aren't bad. They try to kill a bunch of "Androzani trees," which are sentient organisms, and the name of "Androzani trees" implies they didn't just happen upon a random planet with sentient trees, but that they know full well they are conscious beings who can communicate, but are executed regularly for fuel or something like that, but the Doctor isn't concerned with this at all, only magically saving the "souls" of the trees inside a giant golf ball.

    So yes, the horrors and wastefulness of capitalism is irrelevant, so long as the magic man best friend saves your souls.

    To be scrupulously fair, what you describe sounds edgier than anything else of Moffat's (that I've seen) for quite a while. Everything being relative.
