Doctor Who hints on bisexual inclusion


Sunday (October 28) night’s episode “Arachnids in the UK” introduced the family of series regular Yasmin ‘Yaz’ Khan, a young Muslim police officer played by Mandip Gill. One scene sees Yaz’s mum Najia, played by Shobna Gulati, challenging the female incarnation of Doctor about what she felt to Yaz and why didn’t the daughter introduce her new friend too her mother if the two were ‘seeing each other’. Yaz tells her mother that she and the Doctor are “friends,” before telling her mother: “Please can we not have this conversation now?”Later in the episode, Najia also asks Yaz whether she is in a relationship with fellow travelling companion Ryan, played by Tosin Cole — with fans concluding that Yaz could be attracted to both of them. The show plays up Yaz’s adoration for the Doctor later in the episode, when she describes her as “like the best person I’ve ever met,” leading to speculation that the show could be building towards a love triangle between the Doctor, Yaz and Ryan.
