The New Doctor?

“Quiet please!” commanded the first Wise Man.

The other two finished their conversation and turned their attention to the first one.

“Right. Down to business.”

The other two looked expectantly at the first Wise Man.

“Reports indicate that far more people are concerned with this 50th Anniversary of a TV show than the forthcoming birthday of the Son of God.”

“Frankly, I find that show rather silly. I always have,” commented one of the other two.

“Even so it is very popular. We have to do something to make it unpopular.”

“Why? Lots of people on Earth like it. It is harmless fun,” said the third wise man.

“Nonetheless, instructions have come from ‘he who must be obeyed’ are for us to put a spanner in its worldwide popularity.”

There was a general nodding of their collective heads.

“Any ideas?”

There was stony silence.

Five days later, they were still sitting there thinking hard when the most junior of the trio started to smile.

“How… Nah…. It won’t work.”

“What is your idea? Don’t worry about it being rather silly. We’ve been here for days trying to think of something. So far we have come up with nothing.”

The other two looked at him earnestly.

“Well, there is always a special show broadcast on our Lord’s Birthday. This year, I understand it will involve what they call a re-generation. This is where one actor morphs into their replacement.”

“Yes.”

“Well, I was thinking that we could interfere with the process a little bit.”

“The show does not go out live you know! It was probably recorded last summer,”

“Yes but I am sure that you know who will let us mess around with it just this once.”

“I don’t know about that. I’d have to clear it with ‘him’ first. What sort of messing did you have in mind?”

“Well, I was thinking that every ‘Doctor’ for the past 50 years has been male. Why not…”

“Stop right there. ‘He’ won’t like a woman getting the job. You know how he feels about Women Bishops…”

“I wasn’t thinking of going that far. More like making the new Doctor start wearing women’s clothes.”

“You mean make him a Transsexual?”

“Yes. As the episodes go on, he becomes more and more effeminate and more… what the word… vampish. He can use his high heels instead of that think he calls a ‘sonic screwdriver’.”

“Well. We have not had an other ideas,” said the headman.
“I will put it to him upstairs. He won't like it but... we have to do something.”

[The end]

Stay tuned for the 25th… Only joking. This is a bit of fun nothing more.
I wrote this just a few minutes before the 50th Anniversary episode was broadcast worldwide. I can remember the first ever one just a day after Pres. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, I was 10 years old.
