Doctor Who Takes “Bury Your Gays” to a Whole New Level

Doctor Who Bury Your Gays

Doctor Who may have set a TV record with the fastest “Bury Your Gays” moment ever. Fans of the hit BBC sci-fi show were thrilled when a new gay character was introduced in its New Year’s Day special “Resolution.” But the excitement didn’t last long. Because less than half a minute later, the character had his lifeless body dragged down an empty hallway.

Actor Connor Calland made his TV debut playing a gay security guard named Richard. In his <30 seconds of screen time, he challenges Dalek-controlled character Lin, played by actress Charlotte Ritchie, as she attempts to break into a secure facility.

When asked who can open a fingerprint-controlled door, Richard responds: “Today, just me. Most secure digits in Yorkshire. That’s what I tell my boyfriend, anyway. I probably shouldn’t be telling you that, I’m new at this.”

And that’s when he gets killed.

  1. Characters, gay and straight, get killed off in Doctor Who All. The. Time. Doctor Who (in it’s current incarnation) has seen more diversity than ever.
