Cucumber vs. Cucumber

Wed, Jul 12, 2017

So, Russell T. Davies, I have a bit of a bone to pick with you…

Because of your stellar work relaunching the Doctor Who revival and shepherding it for five years, you have a lot of Doctor Who fans who follow your other work, and friends of those fans who follow those fans’ discussions about your other work.

A certain number of those fans grew up watching Doctor Who on TV Ontario in the 1970s and early 1980s.

So, when you name a raunchy comedy/drama about the life of homosexuals in the 21st century Cucumber, you have a bunch of people flashing back to a Canadian children’s program featuring a moose and a beaver, and you are putting strange, disturbing images in their childhood memories.

Don’t know what more to say about that, I just thought you’d like to know.

Maybe you’d get a laugh out of that, or something…
