Too Scary?

He promised his Doctor will be ‘less user-friendly’ and a ‘little darker’.

However yesterday, just hours after Peter Capaldi finally made his  debut as the 12th Doctor, many fans questioned whether the timelord was now too scary for their children to enjoy.

Oh good grief, not this again…

A tweeter called Northsea_view said the show was ‘still scary’ and asked: ‘Shouldn’t it be on after the watershed? It disturbs children’, while  Andy Piper ‏complemented the ‘fantastic performances’ of Capaldi and co-star Jenna Coleman, who plays sidekick Clara Oswald, describing the show as ‘funny, scary and exciting’.

Vaughan Anscombe tweeted ‘#drwho clock work robots still scary just ask my daughter. She’s behind the sofa’, while a user called babesaurus wrote: ‘I liked it but I think it’s too scary for children.  Anyone have thoughts?’ (UK Daily Mail)

I guess the same clockwork robots with clown masks were less “scary” when they were doing THE VERY SAME THING back in “Girl in The Fireplace”.
And as usual, it’s the parents projecting on the kids. This has been going on for 40+ years. Blah Blah Blah…
It was Douglas Adams who said (paraphrase), “Doctor Who is intelligent writing for kids and dumbed down for adults”
The program is supposed to be scary, for god’s sake!
The adults who think it’s too scary for the kids don’t remember what it was like to be a kid.
Ironically, they should just Grow up!  🙂
Capaldi and co star Jenna Coleman had travelled 35,000 on a global publicity tour ahead of the new series, visiting seven countries over 12 days and stopping in cities including New York, Seoul and Rio de Janeiro
