Is the Doctor gay?

Well, the show certainly is in many ways but is the character of the Doctor gay? There's probably a case for both gay or hetero in many stories or even all the stories but truth is: you can use DW to prove almost anything as almost nothing is stated as genuine fact that isn't contradicted in other stories or in real life or science.

First let's look at some of the reasons why this might be so:

FOUR TO DOOMSDAY

FOUR TO DOOMSDAY

Not as bad as the reputation would have you believe. The spaceship model is not bad at all. The interior sets more impressive than anything in the series before and truthfully probably in the classic series, after. The aliens Monarch, Enlightenment, and Persuasion supicious enough and menacing even through subtley, the make up and costumes superb. The music is well done, at least in this episode. The plots not bad either.

What's killingly poor though is the characterization of the regulars. Filmed first for Davison, the Doctor is somewhat bland and as plagues almost all the Doctors after Tom Baker, quippy. He says to the monopticon, "Having a ball?" Not quite as bad as Sly McCoy in TIME AND THE RANI but...still. really.
