BACKLASH OVER PG PLOTS

RATINGS FALL BY QUARTER

DOCTOR Who has lost a quarter of its viewers as many blast "politically correct" storylines since Jodie Whittaker entered the Tardis.

The first female Time Lord's debut last month attracted an average audience of 8.2million but that plunged to 6.1million on Sunday.

Fans complained of being bombarded by preachy, serious messages instead of sci-fi entertainment.

Producers, under new boss Chris Chibnall, have tackled issues such as racism as Jodie, 36, met civil rights icon Rosa Parks in the US in 1955.

Next week they have British Imperialism in their sights in 1947 India.

And the latest episode explored gender with a pregnant man giving birth.

A viewer tweeted: "That's the last episode I'll be watching. I don't watch this type of TV show to get subliminal PC lectures, it's supposed to be entertainment."

Past series under Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith, averaged 7.4million to 8million.
