    Doctor Who News

    With the 2005 series of Doctor Who starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper less than two weeks away from it's debut on the Sci-Fi Channel the New York Times has published an article on Doctor Who in their Arts section.

    The article Dr. Who 2: Sexed-Up British Intelligence focuses on the new series not shying away from sexuality as previous years may had. It focuses on Russell T. Davies being gay and having had created the original Queer as Folk series and how some nay-sayers in the British tabloid press prior to the news series premiere tried to paint a picture of a sexual charged new Doctor Who series would not be appropriate...

    The article states, "Though Mr. Davies's first season of "Doctor Who" has more sexuality, both submerged and overt, than the several hundred episodes that preceded it, the show's producers argue that it is Mr. Davies's creativity, and not his sexual identity, that has made their show a hit."

    "As he prepares for the reinvigorated "Doctor Who" to begin its second season on the BBC this spring, Mr. Davies said sexuality would always have a place in his science fiction, so long as it is balanced with all the other elements that constitute human experience."
