The new Doctor Who hasn't hit the US yet, but Steven Moffat's take on the classic sci-fi series has aired in the UK, to some uproar. Why? Cue Right Said Fred -- some folks think the new incarnation is too sexy.
As the Telegraph reports, "The Eleventh Hour" featured Matt Smith as the newly morphed Doctor, and Karen Gillian as Amy Pond, his irresistible and fiery new companion. It seems some folks didn't like the fact that Ms. Pond was working as a kissogram, dressed in faux police outfit with a tight skirt (with some mention of other outfits), and gasp -- that she watched the Doctor change his clothes (even though us folks on the other side of the screen barely saw his shoulder).
The "sexy" inclusions inspired some to call the new companion slutty, and elicited Piers Wenger, executive producer, to defend the changes: "The whole kissogram thing played into Steven's desire for the companion to be feisty and outspoken and a bit of a number. Amy is probably the wildest companion that the Doctor has travelled with, but she isn't promiscuous. She is really a two-man woman and that will become clear over the course of the episodes."
If Amelia starts wearing bikinis to travel time and space, that'd be questionable, but having seen the episode, you'll all probably be foaming at the mouth for the next ep, and not recoiling from one short skirt and bare shoulder. The new series kicks off on BBC America on April 17.
