If the ratings start to fall for the 13th Doctor Who, the good doctor can always show a bit of skin a la GoT.

The actor that plays the irascible Time Lord, Jodie Whittaker, is definitely not one to shy away from nude and sex scenes, see "The Smoke" 2014, "A Thousand Kisses Deep" 2011 and "Venus" 2006

Well, not an avid watcher of Dr Who, except for Dalek episodes. Liked David Tennant as the best of the more recent ones. But DR Who never stuck me as being overly raunchy and aimed at family type entertainment. Not that a wee bit of skin will necessarily do kids any harm. But it may cause censors to put it out of the reach of kids and that would be a shame.

As I don't watch GoT, I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the actor Jodie Whittaker in any raunchy scenes, but I imagine a serious actor would welcome a change anyway, so as not to be type-cast as a person or an artist to have one-dimensional roles.

Game of Boners is due to be taken over by women characters anyway.

Sun and Mail Online under fire over nude Jodie Whittaker pictures


Classy.

Quote:
Campaigners say publication of pictures of Doctor Who’s new star naked in previous acting roles is ‘irresponsible’

The Sun and Mail Online have been accused of being “reductive and irresponsible” after publishing nude photographs of Jodie Whittaker in articles covering the announcement that she is the new star of Doctor Who.

Reporting the BBC’s announcement on Sunday that Whittaker would be the first female Doctor, both publications ran articles about Whittaker appearing naked or topless in previous acting work, illustrating the stories with stills.

Equal Representation for Actresses (ERA), a campaign group, said it was surprised and disappointed by the publications’ coverage of Whittaker.

ERA said: “We are delighted by the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor. However, we are surprised and disappointed by the Daily Mail [Mail Online is owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust] and the Sun’s reductive and irresponsible decision to run a story featuring pictures of Jodie in various nude scenes.”

The Sun published the photographs under the headline “Dalektable” – a reference to the Daleks, an enemy of the Doctor. The article covered pages four and five of the newspaper and described Whittaker’s “saucy screen past”. Mail Online’s article was headlined “Doctor Nude!” and also featured naked and topless photos of previous male Doctors, including Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith.

The Sun ran a separate news article welcoming Whittaker’s casting on its front page, while the Daily Mail did not publish the photos in Monday’s edition. The Daily Mirror, Daily Express and Daily Star also published photos.

I have never seen Jodie headless....I don't want to see anyone without a head.

David Tennant has got his kit off quite a bit too. Should he have got his dick out as The Doctor to increase ratings too?

Idiot. So glad showing skin was the main point you got out of an inspired casting choice for Doctor 13.

And comparing Doctor Who to Game of Thrones is like comparing apples with things that are not apples.

And your point is?
Is this supposed to be "funny" and "clever"?
Or do you actually think it's important?
Or relevant?
Or are you just trying to stir shit?
She's an actress, remember? Who acts. Different roles all the time.
And Dr Who is a rather different show to GoT.
Serious questions, I would like to know.
