Time to have your mind blown. See the image above, and how the shapes seem to move and slither around? It's not a GIF or other type of animation — it's 100 per cent static. In reality, your rascally visual cortex is doing all the work.
Back in 2015, a single image convinced me I would never watch Doctor Who. An older man running away from a giant explosion, pulling along a much-younger woman gazing at him in pure adulation. It exemplified everything that frustrated me about gender representation in film and TV. I’ve since learned the ways of the Whovian—and while I still have concerns, which I’m hoping the new season addresses, I’ve come to see the strength in the modern Doctor Who companion.
