Doctor Who and the BBC Anti-Ginger?

Seriously, this story has made me laugh a lot this morning by its utter ridiculousness.

Apparently the BBC has received complaints that it was anti-ginger and that it was insulting people with red-hair!!!

We've received complaints from viewers who believed a line in Doctor Who: The End of Time was insulting to people with ginger hair.

This follows the comment made by the Eleventh Doctor after regeneration that he still wasn't ginger, in reference to what the tenth Doctor said right after his own regeneration.

The BBC had to point out that it wasn't the case, and offered as prrof that both companions Donna Noble and Amy Pond were red heads.

This was a reprise of the line in 'The Christmas Invasion' episode in 2005, when David Tennant discovers that he's not ginger, and here he is, missing out again - disappointed he's still not ginger.

In addition, the Doctor's previous companion Donna Noble [Catherine Tate] and his new one Amy Pond [Karen Gillan] are both redheads.

I'm thinking there are some people who have nothing better to do with their lives. Seriously.


  1. Hahahahahaha wow some people have no life ugh lmao !!!!

  2. I've learned that English people do look down on ginger. It's a cultural thing and we think it's absurd bc we can't see why.
