#BBC #BBCpedo BBC: paedophilia central then and now, #DoctorWho no exception

Eighties producer John Nathan Turner and his partner Gary Downie were revealed to have pursued young fans at conventions, some of whom were below the legal age of homosexual consent at the time. Their term for fans they deemed sufficiently attractive was ‘Do-able barkers’.

This was only revealed in a 2013 biography of JNT, and it made the national press. If it had been reported at the time it would probably have resulted in convictions, scandal, and potentially cancellation. Would you rather have Eighties Doctor Who or spare some young men a potentially traumatising indignity?

Still think an ancient alien picking up barely legal Earth women is legit?
