Daily Mail objects

The Daily Mail has taken exception to the length of Amy Pond's skirt in the upcoming series of Doctor Who.

Writing in the Femail section, columnist Allison Pearson displays a woeful ignorance of the series when she asks "since when was Doctor Who's assistant supposed to be sexy?" and makes a plea to keep Doctor Who as family TV.

As any Doctor Who fan could tell her, the Doctor has a long tradition of travelling with sexy companions in short skirts which dates right back to the sixties.

What's next she asks, "Cybermen become Cyberchicks with metal boobs?" Perhaps she should view Torchwood's Cyberwoman.
