... and having been in it for ten years, and Doctor Who being what it is, that's saying something.

So during Flatline Danny rings Clara to find out why she's late for their lunch date (spoiler: it's aliens.) He says 'got our bench', as they're meant to be meeting in the park ... only, whoever was doing the closed captioning for the US broadcast somehow misheard this spectacularly and subtitled it 'what up, bitch?'

Now, in and of itself this would merely be a hilarious misunderstanding. (The reason the subtitle writer may have made that particular error about Danny is left as an exercise for the reader.) Only there are now several people on Tumblr and forums I frequent insisting that he actually did say 'what up, bitch?' and the BBC censored the caption. *facepalm*

I know that Rose called Cassandra a bitchy trampoline back in the day, but still ... does anyone really think anyone would be likely to write that line in Doctor Who script or that it would somehow get past all the people who vet these things?

I think this may have even surpassed the time someone on Gallifrey Base started a fight about whether or not the Eleventh Doctor was a vegetarian. (Not whether he should be a vegetarian - that would at least be a meaningful topic for discussion. About whether he was a vegetarian. After we'd watched him eat bacon and fish fingers and cook what seemed to be a ham omelette.)

Oh, Doctor Who fandom. You are bigger on the inside, so as to fit in more crazy.
