Doctor Who Facing Backlash From Brit Critics Over Featuring First Lesbian Kiss

Madame vestra


The latest episode of the sci-fi series Doctor Who, titled Deep Breath, aired last night on BBC One to over 7 million people, in addition to special screenings in over 400 theaters marking the debut of Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, taking over from Matt Smith.

In the episode, Silurian lizard-woman Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) was forced to lock lips with her human wife Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) for the first time since their appearance in  2011 when they were introduced as married lovers.

The episode featured clockwork droids who sense life forms by their breath, with Jenny attempting to hold her breath to avoid them. When she struggled to breathe, however, Madame Vastra helped her survive by sharing her own oxygen.

One reviewer wrote: “I thought it was gratuitous and not particularly welcome in a family show aimed at kids. It just seems [executive producer Steven Moffat] is on some weird, lizard-lesbian perv trip. With another adding:  “Found those characters that liked to display their preferences to be inappropriate for a children’s program, but the BBC seem to want to become a porn channel and are slowly edging into it.

Obviously these anti-gay bigots will clasp onto anything to show their hate.

In an episode that features the harvesting of human organs to create, in part, a skin covered hot air balloon, on a show about space/time travel people or the fact that Madame Vastra is an entirely different species. The worst thing about the episode is that two women touched lips. Got it.

Draw me like one of your French girls, Vastra.”

  1. What is with you people and your have it your way or no way attitude! Stop being so selfish, take your head out your butt and pick up the pace a bit so you can join the rest of us in 2014 where individuality is our right and oppression is in our past. Nobody likes a hater but I would hate to think if you were mean enough to have gay, transgendered, lesbian, lets say different kids of your own and you told them it wasn’t okay to be themselves. Who are you to judge anyone like that!? Are you God? Did God tell you it was okay to speak for him? Because I seem to remember his words in the bible telling us that it was only his right to judge a man’s virtue. So who made you God? If you were stupid enough to have kids, you may want to hug them about now and let them know that they’re loved and that they’re okay. Even if you’re not. It’s not my place to judge but I think that everyone can agree that narrow minded hatred fueled by a superiority complex is closely indicative to what makes up a killer. I think we all can also agree that killers or potential killers, need to be locked up for the safety of us all.

  2. How ridiculous its a kiss between 2 people who love one another what is so bad about that. the doctor has kissed clara, rose and many other people why should it be so different for two women two kiss one another some people are so stupid

  3. The show had a skin balloon and people being harvested for their body parts by malfunctioning robots, and what you object to is a kiss? Um…check your priorities at the door people.
