Arguments

  • That was deliberate. I am not sure that I found Bill Potts attractive, but it is interesting that Doctor Who is now introducing LGBT into the mix to appeal to male audience.  That hand holding scene towards the end definitely implied a sexual connection and they may choose to further develop that theme, while keeping it PG13.
    in prior Doctor assistants the assistant often has a relationship (boyfriend, etc) and that can be consistent with that theme between Potts and the Water-girl.
  • Yes, it's a little bit spiced up.
