The debut episode of The Mash Report, which is based on satirical website The Daily Mash, joked: “Is Doctor Who too scary? Some fans have accused the show of going too far after it introduced its most terrifying creature yet…a woman,” before going on to joke that certain viewers thought “women were unsuitable for a family audience.”
Although some thought the swipe was “brilliant”, others were altogether more scathing.
It’s probably just as well, because a crack in the space-time continuum will surely open up the day when all Doctor Who fans agree on something.
The Mash Report continues next Thursday at 10pm on BBC2.
