Can we agree to minimise the love interest in the new Dr Who
« on: March 22, 2010, 03:54:27 AM »
Can the writers of the new Doctor Who please keep the love/romance angle between the Doctor and his new assistant to an absolute minimum.

I know they are both kids, but even so...

Hello BG

I suspect that's why they brought in Amy's boy-friend.

I do agree that they ought to bring in some mature tottie than companions in their 20s. Meera Syal has all the potential of a companion although there's a trapdoor of her work and the man on the surface.

I thought that Meera Syal would make a good companion too. I quite liked Bernard Cribbins in the last series for that as well - I'd have liked to see more of him. I don't think the younger companions are necessary to draw in the viewers either, though they might make the current Doctor look pretty young.

Hello Vinx

Try telling the BBC that. They still get the hots over Leela. :-)

It's a good thing Doctor Who isn't an American production or they'd be at it like rabbits all the time.
