Even though Madam Vastra and her one-time maid/current wife have been appearing on Doctor Who since 2011, and have been in a same sex relationship since their introduction, some folks are having some difficulty handling their kiss in the Series 8 premiere, "Deep Breath".
In case you didn't know, Vastra is a lizard-person (Silurian) who shared the Earth with the dinosaurs before entering a deep sleep. When she awoke in Victorian London, she hired a maid named Jenny, and the two became an item. In last Saturday's episode, Vastra used her super lizard power of storing oxygen to help Jenny in a no breath situation. Apparently, this is a kiss and to some it's ruining a children's show:
Found those characters that liked to display their preferences to be inappropriate for a children's program, but the BBC seem to want to become a pr0n channel and are slowly edging into it.What do you think?
Speaking to Telegraph, Martin Freeman said filming a special for Sherlock in 2015 looks pretty likely:
"If that's going to be a special - I'm speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I'd get fired - I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That's what I understand."
UPDATE: Steven Moffat has commented and said there will be "a special, plus a new series of three episodes — it's a record-breaking run! Of course, it's far too early to say what's coming, but we're reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you'd expect…"
The BBC has announced a four part mini-documentary series, The Real History of Sci-Fi to begin airing on April 19th, the same day their newest hit Orphan Black begins its newest series. The four episodes will cover the history of popular sci-fi themes including Time, Invasion, Space and Robots.
The list of contributors is huge. Big names in the sci-fi world like Nathan Fillion, William Shatner, Ursula K Le Guin, Edward James Olmos, and Zoe Saldana (just to name a few) are set to appear. And of course Doctor Who will be represented by David Tennant, Steven Moffat and Karen Gillan. If that's not enough for you Whovians, the whole thing is narrated by the frequent Who writer and Moffat's Sherlock partner, Mark Gatiss.
I'm personally most excited about the Robots episode. What about you?
