Sun and Mail Online under fire over nude Jodie Whittaker pictures

British tabloids live down to their stereotypical 'phwoarrr' image:

The Sun and Mail Online have been accused of being “reductive and irresponsible” after publishing nude photographs of Jodie Whittaker in articles covering the announcement that she is the new star of Doctor Who.

Reporting the BBC’s announcement on Sunday that Whittaker would be the first female Doctor, both publications ran articles about Whittaker appearing naked or topless in previous acting work, illustrating the stories with stills.

The Sun published the photographs under the headline “Dalektable” – a reference to the Daleks, an enemy of the Doctor. The article covered pages four and five of the newspaper and described Whittaker’s “saucy screen past”. Mail Online’s article was headlined “Doctor Nude!” and also featured naked and topless photos of previous male Doctors, including Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith.

It's the ultimate objectifying mentality: "she's a woman. So, what's she look like naked, eh?"

1. Jodie Whittaker was magnificent in "Venus!"

She and Peter O'Toole created a memorable 'couple' relationship for the ages!

We are seeing more and more male full-frontal nudity.

One day - nudity will be boring.

Except - you know - on the internet.

3. Some people are in a perpetual lather over shit like sex and nudity

The irony is, the "outrage" will bring more attention to these newspaper pieces than yawns ever would.
