A limerick a week #44

Knock, knock!
Who’s there?
Dr …

Well, well, well! Hasn’t the decision to cast a woman as the latest incarnation of Doctor Who rattled the sullen cages of a few social media fogeys! Of course, it’s not the first occasion that a Time Lord has regenerated as a Time Lady …

Dalek: You are a Time Lord?
Missy: Time ‘Lady’, thank you. Some of us can afford the upgrade.

As I recall, ‘Missy as Master’ rattled cages too, but Michelle Gomez’s character has since been the highlight of every episode that she’s appeared in! That makes it even more ridiculous for the fictional concept of a bi-cardiac regenerative male anthropoid (in a time-travelling police box somehow bigger inside than out) to be considered rational to some folk who then throw their toys out of the Tardis because they consider the female equivalent to be irrational.

Such griping sounds like sanctimonious bollocks to me, so, given the Tardis has finally arrived in the 21st century …

Reactionary ‘broflakes’ apart
The rest of us now can take heart
That the antediluvian
World of the Whovian
Has a Doctor Who’s state of the art!

Postscript: I was going to tell you a time-travel joke, but you didn’t get it.
