    D Mai Bach, it’s not the lgbt population doing this. It’s one man doing it on our behalf when nobody asked him too. Homophobia then rises because we get blamed for destroying things we never wanted or asked to be destroyed, don’t blame us blame RTD. He’s the only one responsible for this mess

    The latest Doctor is a wonderful actor I‘m sure, and first impressions were promising, however, the last episode with The Rogue, has shown that the BBC. Is little more than a platform for the LGBT population to interfere with the greater majority of Who fans enjoyment of a classic series, void of anything more than scary, unimaginable, situations for cushion hiding children (and adults) to bring us kissing males that many of us find ultimately uncomfortable and therefore unacceptable in a programme which has for generations entertained a predominantly non LGBT world. For goodness sake BBC, take a grip and give the greater majority a straight and historically normal and entertaining series, that has given generations of people great pleasure for over fifty years.

    So does this now mean every time the 15th Doctor meets a ‘hot’ male, he will be flirting with him for the bulk of an episode, and not getting involved in the main plot in defeating the enemies, and supporting his companion? If so then this show isn’t for me.

    RTD should do what he’d demand of any failed politician he doesnt like and resign.

    Also, curious he only mentions episode one… almost as though the additional views haven’t translated into the later episodes.

    In the latest issue of the Radio Times, Davies said: “I’m very proud of it! You know, they might not be the ratings we’d love. We always want higher. But they are building over the 28-day period. Episode 1, Space Babies, is already up to 5.6 million and counting. So it is getting there.”

    But the 2023 specials reached way past that in 7 days, just to put it into perspective.

    Well, I guess I’ll just go and touch grass… it can’t be any worse than watching this tripe. Honestly, who is RTD trying to appeal to? Queer people seem to dislike this current series/direction as much as non-queer people. I actually can’t believe how much he/they have fudged (polite) the show up. Record low viewing figures and audience appreciation should hopefully tell the BBC that this isn’t working though… sack RTD before it’s too late (maybe Ncuti too) and return to a more classic Doctor and direction of previous series.

    Didn’t mind the kiss, we’ve had that before with River Song.

    But the Doctor being flirty (the scene in Rogue’s Ship, while Kylie is playing), is not how the Doctor behaves.

    Although he is confident when battling aliens, and has experience and wisdom.

    But when it comes to having someone being attracted to him.
    He should be a bumbling nit wit, always grateful for the attention, but has no idea how to handle it.
