My secret gay agenda, let me show you it

On 19 June, 2008, in Random Thoughts, by C. Scott Davis

There was a recent post on a Doctor Who site about the idea that Russell T. Davies is pursuing some kind of “secret gay agenda”, simply because he doesn’t make every character automatically straight by default1. The subject seems to show up every time we see a non-straight character (this time because a character in last week’s episode casually referred to her ex as “she”), and the discussions tend to run the full range from interesting and well-thought-out (on both sides of the issue) to mindlessly homophobic.

I have my own serious thoughts on the subject… but instead I give you this, from when the issue came up last series:

Gay Agenda


1 Hey, I never claimed to be unbiased on the subject.

Kicking it old school… or something…

The TARDIS

Have you seen my ship, Martha Jones?

to the tune of “New York Mining Disaster 1941” by the Bee Gees

As a result of all you’ve recently been through,
there is something I would like to show to you.
It’s not the plain blue wooden box it seems to be.

Have you seen my ship, Martha Jones?
Don’t be fooled by the shape of the outside.
It is really much larger on the inside, Martha Jones.

In my TARDIS, I roam through time and space.
I’m the last member of the Timelord race,
and if you want to, you can take a trip with me.
I can show you things you never thought you’d see.

Have you seen my ship, Martha Jones?
Don’t be fooled by the shape of the outside.
It is really much larger on the inside, Martha Jones.

And at the risk of sounding harsh I have to say,
just one trip and then I take you home to stay.
I just don’t need another human hanging ’round.

Have you seen my ship, Martha Jones?
Don’t be fooled by the shape of the outside.
It is really much larger on the inside, Martha Jones.

Doctor Whose Line is it Anyway?

Doctor Whose Line

"Improvise! Improvise!"

Doctor Whose Line is it Anyway? featured four contestants who were forced to improvise a convincing Doctor Who storyline, while being chased around by a Dalek.

The series was wildly popular among coma victims and household pets, but was suddenly cancelled in 1996, when the Dalek was accidentally released into the wrong studio and exterminated everyone on the set of Can’t Cook, Won’t Cook.

Immediately following its cancellation, the BBC wisely destroyed all existing copies of the series, even going so far as to also hunt down and destroy the entire cast and crew, just to be safe.

In 2002, a man claimed to have every episode on video tape, and threatened to give them to the BBC unless he was paid £10,000. When the BBC was unable to raise the funds, public donations began to pour in, quickly exceeding the ransom demand by several thousand pounds. Before payment could be made, however, the identity of the man was discovered, and an angry mob dragged him from his home and poked him with pointy sticks, until he admitted that it had all been a hoax and that no such video tape actually existed.
