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