Okay so weird dream I had this morning:
Right, so Jenna leaves Doctor Who.
And this starts a bizarre ripple effect.
Suddenly we see the Doctor go through a huge and diverse array of companions - some lasting a very short time, others lasting longer - and everyone is confused because we’re getting a spread of different genders, races, sexualities, ages, and so on.
And somewhere in the back of our minds, we’re like “Okay what’s going on here.”
Turns out, it’s a desperate bid to find someone, any companion who Peter Capaldi will flirt with.
But every single one. Is a no go.
He said no flirting and he meant it.
Finally, towards the end of his run
he flirts with a companion.
It’s K9 the robot dog.
Showrunners have a nervous breakdown.
