Doc­tor Who fans’ fury as Beeb axe Christ­mas spe­cial

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

THE Beeb has axed its Doc­tor Who Christ­mas spe­cial this year as it didn’t want to of­fend view­ers who are Chris­tian, fans claim.

The yule­tide edi­tion of the sci- fi show, star­ring Jodie Whit­taker ( above), has been ditched for the first time since it came back in 2005.

In­stead the fes­tive episode will be shown on New Year’s Day.

But an­gry fans say the BBC has axed the Christ­mas Day spe­cial be­cause the show it­self has be­come too PC.

Fan Peter Daniels, 32, from Ut­tox­eter, said: “Since this new woman doc­tor started, the pro­gramme has been noth­ing but a virtue- sig­nalling, les­bian- pro­mot­ing PC preach- a- thon.

“The BBC think do­ing a Christ­mas- themed spe­cial is no longer ‘ vi­able’ these days.

“They say see­ing the doc­tor in a Christ­mas out­fit would alien­ate non- Chris­tian view­ers.

“This time it re­ally is PC gone MAD!”
