Further to yesterday’s post about Abortion and Doctor Who, Amfortas adds:
My friend Joyanna was ranting away about the brainwashing that goes through popular TV shows. She was having quite a ‘forensic’ time of it, picking through the bones of ‘Bones’.
I had to add my bit. It seems Moffatt has either lost the plot or is being too clever by 52.635%
“AND… then there is Dr Who. I know you get it in the US too. For years it has been pushing the smart ‘assistant’. The girl in the show. She is not the only girl mind you who is so smart and powerful (even surpassing the Dr all the time) as other girls appear as scientists, time travellers in their own right, ‘warriors’, even a super-dooper ‘older woman’ Professor who is the daughter of an ‘assistant’ (River Song, daughter of Amy Pond). And ‘Captains’ of military units and having command powers that outstrip any Colonel you might think of.
