Doctor Foster shocks fans of original nursery rhyme

13-09-17

THE BBC’S adaptation of nursery rhyme Doctor Foster has shocked fans with its graphic sex scenes.

In the original rhyme on which the hit series is based, Doctor Foster is a man who steps in a deep puddle while travelling to Gloucester, prompting a change to his future travel plans.

56-year-old Mary Fisher said: “Doctor Foster is one of my favourite nursery rhymes so I was thrilled to see its cautionary tale of puddle avoidance being brought to the screen.

“You can imagine my surprise when I discovered doctor was now an angry woman who shags blokes with her bra on and tries to get off with teenage boys. Also there are a number of references to ‘fucking’ and a general gloomy tone.

“This is series two and we haven’t even seen a puddle yet, unless it was of bodily fluids.”

A BBC spokesman said: “Watch out for the autumn’s new drama series Humpty Dumpty, about an egg who meets a sexy married woman on a train and shags her in the disabled toilet, then everyone has lots of arguments.”
