Still Not a Ginger, Dark Day for Time Lords as Woke Gender and Race Swaps Came For ‘Doctor Who’
The BBC action-adventure show ‘Doctor Who’ has been around for almost 60 years. From the first episode, which aired November 23, 1963, with William Hartnell as the lead character, it was originally aimed straight at children with no curve-balls other than the character being an alien (Time Lord) who protects Earth and regenerates into a new body which retains all of its memories when he is injured enough to trigger the transformation (which was used to cover for actors being replaced).
Until December 26, 2017, when Peter Capaldi’s last episode ended, The Doctor had always been played by a white heterosexual male. Then the show went off the air…for me…but for others it struggled on. Alleged lifetime fan Chris Chibnall drove the stake into the shows heart by doing the normal ‘Who’ thing but using the regeneration to change the actor to Jodie Whitaker (arguably she is a woman, but since the left insists those can’t be defined nobody really knows). Unsurprisingly the ratings dropped with her introduction.
Now luckily they are bringing back former show-runner Russell T. Davies to light that stake on fire and complete the job of strangling the golden goose moneymaker of a show. Russell’s idea is after all those years to bring in Ncuti Gatwa to play the character as black (which should be pulloffable as he is black) and male which could be a bit of a problem.
Actor Neil Patrick Harris (who is gay)*, has tricked us all by playing a teenage straight male doctor (1989-1993), then a straight know it all alien-raper in Starship Troopers (1997), followed by an exaggerated straight version of himself in the Harold & Kumar movie series (from 2004-2011) before disappearing from Hollywood altogether (as far as I know, I saw him in nothing). Neil met Gatwa and claims he was told The Doctor will now be gay. That is doable as Ncuti, whose first appearance will be in the Christmas Special this year (and I’m certain that both Jesus and Santa are thrilled about that), is gay too. Apparently Harris will finally return to work with a role as a Who villain in that same Special.
The countdown is now on for the funeral of the show, which is bound to happen again. It was already canceled once in 1989 after 26 years on the air (oddly when Doogie Howser began on TV). Then it made a comeback in 1996 with a TV movie, before coming back full time in 2005. So if the show rightly gets dropped after one year of the dreck they have announced we might be looking at (based on the prior timeline) 2039 for the next reboot, which is plenty of time for a nice nap.
*Notice there was never any outrage or protesting of projects in which Neil didn’t play his actual sexual preference. And the race and gender swap pattern is always away from male, white and straight, never towards those.
