Feigning normality since 1973
Doctor Who and Shipping
Filed in: Doctor Who.
While waiting for the next episode to screen (two weeks has never been such a long time), I've been musing. Spoilers ensue for The Doctor's Daughter below!
On the topic of shipping - that is the fandom tendancy to pair characters up, not the practice of moving freight by sea - I've noticed there's a there's a minority in Doctor Who fandom shipping the Doctor and Jenny. This icks me in a way I can't put my finger on. Maybe it's the fact that she's his genetic clone and technically his daughter. Maybe it's the age gap (one day versus 903* years. and I thought the age gap between him and Rose was big). Maybe it's the fact that actress Georgia Moffett is Peter Davison's daughter, and Peter used to play the Doctor, so it's like in some subtle way she and David Tennant are related.
* He's obviously lying, since he was 953 in Time and the Rani.
