BBC Flawlessly Responds To The Sexist Snowflakes Upset Over Doctor Who"s First Woman Time Lord!

Keep weeping, snowflakes — the BBC don't give a fuck! On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the [...] Keep weeping, snowflakes -- the BBC don't give a fuck! On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the network for ruining the sanctity of the sci-fi show. Such complaints questioned how a time traveling alien with otherworldly, regenerative abilities could possibly go from Peter Capaldi to the Broadchurch actress. QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones? Time-bending, sure. Age-bending, no problem-o. But GENDER-bending? How can one possibly wrap their heads around such a perplexing, doctor-ruining character trait like that? Thankfully, BBC issued a response to the haters, delicately explaining it has long been established in the show that Time Lords are able to switch gender -- and those who aren't on board can sit on a sonic screwdriver! The BBC Complaints page stated how "viewers contacted us unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor," before responding: "Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme. The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender. As the Controller of BBC Drama has said, Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor. We hope viewers will enjoy what we have in store for the continuation of the story." Translation: go fly a Tardis and time-warp the fuck over it! Whittaker will make her debut after Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffatt's departure following the Christmas special -- and WE. CANNOT. WAIT! [Image via BBC.].....»»

At the end of the series finale, Tom ripped opened his button-down shirt and you saw the Superman logo on the suit, but he was shown from a distance while flying away. Years later, Tom is finally opening up about the decision to not show Clark in action as Superman. “It was something that we discussed before we ever shot the pilot with [creators] Al [Gough] and Miles [Millar],” Tom said in an interview with EW. “We literally had a sit down where we talked about the show and I asked about the suit and the tights and the flying, and they said, ‘No, absolutely not,’ part of the reason being is that show is about a teenager trying to figure out who he is. They felt that once Clark put on the cape and the suit, life became too easy, in a sense. They wanted to focus on who this character was before that. And, at the time, because of where visual effects and special effects and stunts were, it would be too expensive. That’s mainly why they save that for movies, more or less.” Tom explained that there was an idea to have Clark put on the suit in the beginning of the episode and save Lois Lane on a plane, but that idea was shot down. “We jumped onto this idea that at the end of the show, the idea is that Clark becomes Superman and he’s out there, and we know he’s out there, but we can’t go with him, but that we know and we feel good that he’s out there doing good,” Tom said. “That was what we strove for, and I think we hit it. I liked the ending of the series, because it’s like, ‘Yes, he did it!’ I hope the audience didn’t feel like we didn’t show them something that they needed to see. I felt like we gave them the jumping off point for their imagination as to what could happen.” Next up for Tom is a recurring role on the Fox series Lucifer!.....»»
