Doctor Who drops massive hint that a major character is bisexual

Doctor Who has dropped a major hint that one of the show’s main companions is bisexual.

Sunday (October 28) night’s episode “Arachnids in the UK” introduced the family of series regular Yasmin ‘Yaz’ Khan, a young Muslim police officer played by Mandip Gill.

One scene sees Yaz’s mum Najia, played by Shobna Gulati, challenging Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor about her relationship with Yaz.

Questioning the Doctor, Najia asks: “How do you know my daughter? Why have I never met you before?”

When the Time Lord is evasive, Najia adds: “It’s not a difficult question… are you two seeing each other?”

The Doctor responds: “I don’t think so. Are we?”

Yaz tells her mother that she and the Doctor are “friends,” before telling her mother: “Please can we not have this conversation now?”
