Putting a layer of pastry over a casserole and calling it a pie.

If you're making a pie and you want to call it a pie, then make a proper ****ing pie.

Base crust should be different pastry from the pie top, too.

If you can't throw it, it's not a pie.

I am not a fan of shortcrust pastry , so am happy with the casserole with a puff pastry lid
If it ain't fully enclosed in pastry not sure it can be called a pie

Shepherd's Casserole doesn't have the same ring to it.

I always thought that Shepherd's Pie was an idiomatic way of saying that it's not actually a pie. Kind of like Shepherd's "Pie". Similar to Baker's Dozen, Shanks's Pony and West Ham's Midfield.

See, that's weird, because I always thought, without really thinking about it, if you get me, that it was a reference to the kind of farmer who kept livestock and didn't grow the wheat that would be used to make the flour that gets put in the pastry.

I like that explanation. I thought Shepherd’s pie because it contains lamb mince, whilst beef mince is used in a cottage pie. Even allowing for what I said, your theory holds true .... no idea why it’s a cottage pie and not dairy farmer’s pie.

But they did grow potatoes presumably?

A Dairyfarmers Pie would ,presumably, be a layer of mashed potato over a bowl of milk.
