DOCTOR Who producers cannot understand why critics are calling the show ‘too politically correct’ when the episode where she kills Thatcher has yet to screen.
The new series has so far covered the civil rights movement, the partition of India, why Stalin was right and the evil of white men, all of which are undisputed historical facts.
But the upcoming New Year’s Day special where the Doctor kills Margaret Thatcher with a light sabre is expected to ruffle a few feathers.
Producer Carolyn Ryan said: “We’ve got to remember that this is a show for kids. They’re not interested in Daleks or Cybermen. They want the Doctor to tackle the real villains.
“The overarching baddie for the series is capitalism – obviously – but we’re dealing with that in all its vile manifestations such as the meat industry, the police, the gender binary and Western science.
“In the special the Doctor arrives in the devastated Britain of 1988, joins the courageous resistance fighting the Thatcher dictatorship, and executes the PM. The last five minutes is happy multicultural Britain dancing around her head on a spike.”
Ryan added: “Next series, the Doctor travels to 2016 to stop the Great Disaster of Brexit. None of this is remotely controversial.”
