Doctor Her » Women in Doctor Who "To my mind, the problem with Dr Who is not the women that appear in the series, it’s the necessity of using peril as a plot device to drive the stories. At its most simplistic, Dr Who is a show about a semi-omnipotent being who gets into a difficult situation and extracts himself from it using his extraordinary brilliance, resolve and courage. To illustrate the danger of the situation, the (usually female) companion gets into trouble and has to be rescued."
I'm really enjoying reading Doctor Her of late; I mean, a feminist Doctor Who blog! Who came up with that idea? (tags: DoctorWho )
