That's not strictly accurate. In the third Doctor era, the story would have had yet another obstructive bureaucrat cut-and-pasted into it, with a name like Fotheringay-Smythe and a brief from the Ministry, so the Doctor could sneer at him and the whole argument would hold up progression of the plot for twenty-five minutes or so. (Of course drilling is going to continue until the monsters get out, no matter what the civil servants are doing.)

I'm not sure Chibnall knew what he was doing with this one (^W^W^W). He likes to write flawed characters, cos that is like more human innit, so everyone runs around for an hour pursuing their own agendas whether or not it has anything to do with the plot, such as it is. And then at the end: everyone goes back to sleep. Fascinating.
