34 Rory Williams from Gender Diversity in the Who-niverse [Video] (0:56)

For her 5th Doctor Who lecture to the CPP community, Dr. Rosanne Welch discusses how society – and the show’s writing staff – prepared the audience for a major change in this 50-year franchise – the creation of the first Lady Doctor!

Transcript:

Rory is such a cool character. I know the joke has really died how many times almost as bad as South Park all right but think about what Rory did all right. First of all he willingly married somebody who was running around having these adventures right. When she was gone for a while he never lost faith that he would find her and that she would still love him. That nothing could happen that would make him stop loving her. He’s all about being a man in love with a woman. That is his definition in life right and usually that’s how we define women by the men in their life but Rory is defined by the woman in his life which is pretty cool and as we know when she was trapped in the Pandorica for a thousand years he willingly agreed to stay and guard her. That’s how much he loved her. So if I was thinking about sensitivity and emotions Rory is defined by his ability to love which again is generally gendered as a thing that women do best.

Transcript:

…and just a side note in the world of production which I think is so interesting. When they went to film this particular episode each of these two actors had other jobs. So it turned out by accident they were only available on the same morning to film their goodbye scene. So Russell Davies invented the fact that they were married. he actually had two different stories written for them to film on different days and suddenly he only had them for 3 hours one morning. So he married them off. Though it was cute. Put it up there. Controversy from people saying “You took the only people of African descent and forced them to be married to each other like you don’t believe in interracial marriage.” I had two actors who could only work on one day. I had to be creative and I personally think that that’s an excellent ending for both of them because they shared adventures with The Doctor. How do you get together with someone who doesn’t share your background? who can’t understand your emotions and what you’ve done in your life, right? So Mickey. Mickey is a cool sensitive guy. Of course, I’ve already talked about captain Jack so I’ll just fly through him. Nothing wrong with looking at a few pictures of Captain Jack for a few minutes. Doesn’t hurt anybody to go, “Wow!”
