When talentless writers do Dr. Who

“Sci-fi has a long and happy history of sexy female characters and long may that continue.”

Ah ratings. Dr. Who has always been a bit of a dumb show anyway (IMHO), but the new people in charge want to make it dumber.

In one scene, Amy, played by the actress Karen Gillan, told the Doctor that her kissogram repertoire also included nuns and nurses’ outfits.

In another, she watched as the Doctor completely undressed in front of her, before donning his new outfit of a tweed suit and bow tie.

As he stripped, Amy’s fiancé, Rory, asked: “Aren’t you going to turn your back?” to which she replied, “no”, while running her eyes over the naked Doctor.

For the viewer, however, the Doctor’s physique was left to the imagination, with only a glimpse of his torso shown on screen.

Writing about Amy, one viewer in an online forum asked: 'Why did she dress up as a tarty policewoman? Surely that's not fitting for a family show.'

Another said: "They've completely demeaned Doctor Who by replacing good episode stories with slutty girls."

Guess the commenter has missed viewing recent sci-fi. It's all like that now.
