Not Really Raunchy

Karen Gillan says she finds that suggestions that the show has been sexed up ‘strange’- but wants to lock lips with the Doctor again for the Christmas special.

Doctor Who star Karen GillanGillan, who plays Amy Pond, who’s rising hemline and attempts to drag the Doctor to bed during Flesh and Stone have already sent Daily Mail keyboards clattering.

“We’re not sending out bad messages because the Doctor wasn’t reciprocating,” said Karen. “And, actually, people who do find that quite raunchy: really?”

In the past the Daily Mail have used choice comments from MediawatchUK, the successor to the National Viewers’ and Listeners’ Association, the organisation founded by Mary Whitehouse in 1965.

During Philip Hinchcliffe’s reign as producer Whitehouse was extremely critical of several serials such as stone cold classics The Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, The Brain of Morbius, The Seeds of Doom and The Deadly Assassin.

The Mail claims the BBC have cynically ‘sexed up’ the show in order to attracted a more adult audience although figures revealed yesterday in Kasterborous show that the BBC have sold 7 million units of action figures in a year with only five episodes of Who aired. Which suggests they’re getting along fine without the needing to cynically ’sex up’ the show for adults.

Head over to The Mirror to read more about what Karen wants from her ’boys’ in the Christmas special and what she thinks of ‘skirt-gate’. For a more reasonable view of the Daily Mail’s article read Sexy Vamps OK? from the Kasterborous archive.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
