Dr Who Upgraded

Loved Warwick Davis this evening. Not in that way. I mean, his appearance on Dr Who.

But it's time for the BBC, that most ridiculously Politically Correct of  British institutions, to do something about the terribly outmoded expression, "Cybermen". To be fair, they're single-minded creatures with no personality who are incapable of expressing emotion, and live for violence and destruction. So clearly, in that sense, "men" is appropriate.

But some of those android annihilation machines were female in a previous incarnation. We should recognise and affirm their former identities And let's face it, it's not like the so-called Cyber-"men" have any identifiable genitalia in any case. So it's time to put things right. It's time the Beeb renamed the Cybermen as Cyberfolk.


  1. I'm not sure why, but when I was watching those Cyberpeople, The name of Drayton Parslow came to mind.

    Than reflecting on this unusual occurrence, I thought that perhaps they were stray members of his right wing Ultra-orthodox congregation on a day out?

    Perhaps Drayton would like to claim them for his own and for God?

  2. Somehow they just don't look the same as they did when they were fighting Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee. Ah well, I must be getting old!
