Makes sense to me coppers in the U.K. who have gone public re aliens and UFOs tend to come from Yorkshire. Some even had stripes on their arm. See Prufos. (police UFO reporting hotline). So a Yorkshire Dr Who actually makes perfect sense. Wink

Sadly I have lost interest in Dr Who, the last one just didn’t do it for me. Just give me some Daleks and i’m Happy.

DOCTOR Who fans are furious that the latest incarnation of the character is from Yorkshire.

New Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker has angered fans with her accent and her Tardis that looks like a rain-soaked terraced house.

Fan Nathan Muir said: “No-one from Yorkshire can convincingly play an alien from a civilisation far more advanced than our own, or even equally as advanced. They haven’t even heard of Uber, except in Leeds where they think it’s a type of gravy.

“Heartbeat. Emmerdale. Doctor Who. Is it just me, or does one of those not fit with the others?”

However fan Donna Sheridan said: “It’s so refreshing to see Yorkshires being represented on television, but why isn’t her assistant a ferret?

“A clear-cut case of the BBC’s anti-mustelid bias.”


Laughing

I thought it was pretty good. certainly better than a grey haired grumpy Scotsman


As a grey haired grumpy Scotsman I ought to be offended by your remark (but I'm not) Very Happy

Id have watched that, it would have been quite entertaining. I presume she'd have had a drink before filming to calm the nerves.
