    Travelling through space and time in a police box requires a penis, according to several Internet morons this evening.

    As Jodie Whittaker was confirmed as the new Doctor, lots of angry idiots insisted that the genitals of the Doctor play an essential role in the universe in which he resides.

    Fan of made up science fiction television stories, Simon Williams, told us,”Yes I am angry about Jodie Whittaker being made the next Doctor.

    “But I’m also angry that they have made me so angry about the lack of a penis in a TV show – which sounds extremely weird when I say it like that.

    “But it’s not weird, it’s normal. Yes it is, shut up.

    “Just because Gallifrey doesn’t actually exist and time travel isn’t really possible, doesn’t mean the writers can just go around making stuff up about the people they’ve made up.”

    “Actually, that’s literally what we can do,” explained one of the show’s writers.

    “The Doctor has a long history of not using his penis to resolve issues across time and space, and we’re confident that Jodie Whittaker will have no issues in continuing that fine tradition.”

    Yes, but it was once a children's programme that also appealed to adults, simply because it was produced in a more 'adult' way (and it was genuinely scary, through the eerie and dark atmosphere the stories created). Watch a Dr Who episode from the 70s/early 80s and it's a totally different beast.

    These days it's more like a Harry Potter fantasy adventure (too much focus on special effects and not enough on quality acting or story lines), than a sci-fi series, with its child-like production, immature content and a propensity to pander to political correctness (hence the introduction now of a female doctor) - I'm surprised she's not also black!

    Not that I have any problem with black people, but if they're going to play the political correctness card, they may as well go the whole hog!!

    Bollox to it.

    Hi Werner,

    Not sure. Are there such tests available in German? If so, take one and report back!

    Doctor Who was never intended originally as 'just' a children's programme you know. I seem to recall it was funded by the main BBC Drama wing rather than 'Children's TV.' In the 60's, the companions were chosen to keep Mum and Dad involved as well (oh I dunno, Polly, Jamie, Zoe and 'leather lungs' Victoria) and the first two, Ian and Barbara, were kind-of links to the teachers little ones like me had back then with granddaughter Susan more like us. The Dalek's Masterplan as an example was written so well and listening to the audio's now, with memories of its first broadcast and strong memories of the ageing and death of Sara Kingdom, her body becoming a skeleton and crumbling to dust, still sends shivers down my spine as it was a bold thing to show to a young audience (I was nine!). Sarah Jane was probably the best loved of all the companions as she was one of the few able to keep Pertwee's and Baker's on-screen ego's in check I thought. By this time, the small Hartnell loving kids had grown into teenagers, so the likes of Jo Grant* and Sarah Jane were perfect for hormonal teenage boys to lust after I thought - they were great actresses too in their own way and deserving of our fondness now (*batty but lovable actress Katy Manning was brilliant in recent times in the 'Who related Iris Wildthyme audios...).

    Sorry for the thread drift. Doctor Who seemed to have the ability to get kids hooked over it's long life and many of these kids stayed with it as they grew up. Some scripts were childish to a degree, but others definitely had more mature themes with thinking about. My eighteen year old son began early the same - he was six in 2005 when the show was re-launched, although he went off the show in the Tennant era, but has all the season DVD's and has watched them since broadcast, tackling me about stories I soon forgot... We watched this last season with increasing disbelief, fervently wishing Capaldi had better scripts and that 'Bill' hadn't kept going on about being a lesbian every episode....

    Yeah, we 'Aspies' do like our set routines and when they change, it throws us big-time. Interesting thing, life. Throws up all sorts...

    So it's a children's programme that's been crap for over 30 years in your opinion. As long as its current audience is happy with it, I don't see the problem. I know that some people get hung up over which version of Star Trek is best, or pine for Blake's Seven, UFO, Captain Scarlet or other sci-fi programmes they recall from their childhood. It just seems odd to me, like worrying about who presents Blue Peter (a quick check reveals that they are currently a woman, a black bloke, and a white bloke with a stupid hairstyle).
