Dalek Bikini Pulled Down
So here I was ready to peel back the velvet curtain and show you the delights of BBC America’s Doctor Who Swimsuit Calendar- a resplendent piece of erotica containing images apparently too disturbing for anyone… ever.
That’s right Dalek’s in tankini’s have been banned across the universe. No more ogling of Sontarans in sarongs, no cheeky glances at The War Machine playing beach volleyball and for the love of all that’s holy, no more Colin Baker in a mankini (maybe…)
None of the hundreds of links via social networks like Twitter or Tumblr are able to findÂ the scantily cladÂ Daleks norÂ does the BBC America DoctorÂ WhoÂ site appear to have its own link to it.Â So why the sudden change of heart?
Was the very idea of aÂ calender usually associated with Sports Illustrated Magazine usingÂ familiar faces fromÂ a children’s programme too close to the bone for some parents? That said, that implies that someone actually looked at it.
In issues of censorship its tradition to not actually see/hear/acknowledged the thing that offends you before you blab to the powers that be: ‘won’t somebody think of the children!’
Of course we don’t know if offence was taken at all but to pull a calendar in February is a little strange (maybe it was a Chinese calender?)
Still if you’re keen to see the cover of the calendar – featuring a Dalek coveringÂ its bumps in a fetching pink bikini (you know you want to!) – then see this link here.
Of course, if anyone while looking on the Internet, happens to find images from it (you perverts!) then we’d be more than happy to post them here.
