August 2nd, 2013 by Anna Howell. Hands up who cant wait till Sunday so we can finally put an end to all the speculation surrounding the 12th Doctor Who and their sex, age and colour? Ever since current Time lord, Matt Smith , announced his decision to leave the hit BBC family sci-fi entertainment series earlier this year rumours have been rife about just who could be called on to take the iconic baton from him during this years Christmas Day Special. Right from the off bookies threw a spanner in the works by naming a female replacement with odds of 8/1 suggesting that the next regeneration would bring the show into more politically correct times by casting a female or black actor in the role. Since then several names have been thrown in to the ring, ranging from Harry Potter star Rupert Grint to Michael Jacksons 16 year old daughter Paris, whilst fans and critics had a tug of war over whether such a big change would be suitable for the show. Whilst all this was going on the BBC have said (several times) that a female Doctor would not be considered as the network felt that it would raise too many awkward questions between the shows younger fans and their parents, but this didnt really seem to put anyone off the idea. And, with everyone in the world having an opinion on the matter, now the 10th Tie Lord, Matt Smiths predecessor, David Tennant has come forward to express his or not as the case may be! When asked by SFX magazine whether he thought it a good idea for the Doctor to change sex, he replied: You are not going to get a quote from me on that. It will come back and bite me on the a*** whatever I say! Moving swiftly on to the subject of the 50th anniversary episode, which sees Tennant and his former companion Billie Piper joining forces with Smith and his companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, he went on to say: I cant say I was surprised. There is a precedent to this, isnt there? It has happened a few times down the years so it was never out of the realms of possibility that it would happen for the 50th anniversary. I was more surprised about how long it took to come through. It actually took quite a long time. There had been a sketchy little conversation about it and there was a long gap before I got the call. For a long time I was starting to think it was never going to happen so there was an element of surprise there.
UK Doctor’s Horrifying Admission Reveals How Sick & Disabled Babies Are Put on ‘Death Pathways’, Deprived of Food & Fluid for 10 Days
The Daily Mail has learned the process of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies. In other words, patients young and old are slowly starved and dehydrated to death. (Photo credit: Getty) One doctor, acting as a whistle blower, admitted to starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital in a leading medical journal. The doctor describes it as a 10-day process, during which the baby becomes smaller and shrunken. Roughly 130,000 elderly and terminally ill patients reportedly die on the Liverpool Care Pathway, or death pathways. LCP is now being independently investigated at the orders of ministers in England. The Daily Mail has more details on this tragic story: The investigation, which will include child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors decisions. Medical critics of the LCP insist it is impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear hospital beds and save the NHS money. The use of end of life care methods on disabled newborn babies was revealed in the doctors bible, the British Medical Journal. The previously mentioned doctor wrote of the pain of watching the slow, forced deaths of newborn babies. One babys parents decided to put their infant on the pathway because of a lengthy list of unexpected congenital anomalies, according to the doctor.

I have a growing sense of dread as I listen.
