I, for one, hate to see identity politics ruin such a classic family show. It used to be all about casting the most talented actors, but now it's clear that the BBC is pandering to woke, loony-left ideology by casting based on identity:

Because that's now three out the six modern Doctors being Scottish.

It has to end!!!!!

I meant actors who had been in DW, not just the lead. Surprised you didn't go for Gillain.

Carey Mulligan is another one. In the best ever episode of the show.

Fuck me, are you ok? There is plenty of loony in that post. Dripping in it. A tad racist too, to suggest Scots only get there because of their nationality. Sounds right wing, Brexit Loving, Rule Britannia jingoistic Tory Voting, Gammon angst. I don’t know you but that’s how it sounds. Feel free to clear up if I got anything wrong. You point of course is bollocks. Just to be clear.

You do understand the post in question was intended as ironic humour don't you? Otherwise, there's a massive 'whoosh!' coming your way old chum.
