If I was the person in charge of these things, I'd let his last words as the Doctor be "Fuckitty Fuckitty fuck fuck fuck"

Hey Doctor Who fans!

You knew this would happen. Yes you did.
If not this precisely something very like it.

Doctor Who branded ‘homophobic’ by outraged fans for giving gay character 30 seconds of screen time before killing him

It made the "papers".

It might be enough to get "them" to do "something".

Ergo, real news. :BigGrin3:

There is this "thing" right now, where it is apparently bad to kill off gay characters for reasons I don't understand because it somehow portrays gay people as being more expendable. So this is just more of that. I have seen people rail against it on various writer's groups I am part of. Usually, the same people who think making their character a genderfluid asexual polyamorous bisexual POC is a substitute for giving them a personality. I have also seen the idea railed against because it is a bit of a cliched trope, which is a reason I DO understand but don't necessarily agree with (largely because I think if you know who has 'plot armor' in a story, it makes it kind of boring)

You can’t have iconic or memorable characters unless they have a proper risk/struggle/journey against the odds. I.e. Luke skywalker has to be:
Ep 4: saved in a bar fight, has to run from big bad guy
Ep 5: defeated by big bad, loses a hand
Ep 6: finally gets to triumph

If you just have effortless victory (looking at you ep 7 and ep 8 ) then while the films may be great fun... I don’t think that the character is going to be as memorable a protagonist.

TLDR: if you want great minority/female characters , they have to be able to have flaws, suffer, learn. It can’t be all hyper-competence and plot armor.
