"Apart from my transformations, I was happier than I had ever been in my life. For the first time ever, I had friends, three great friends. Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, and, of course, your father, Harry  James Potter. Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her…I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they worked out the truth…And they didn’t desert me at all.”

Queer Representation and Visibility in Doctor Who - Ricky Smith and Jake Simmonds

During one of their trips the TARDIS takes The Doctor, Rose and Mickey to a parallel universe. They find themselves trapped in this universe for 24 hours. Rose, along with The Doctor, uses this time to go in search of her father. Mickey, left to his own devices, decides to find out if his gran is still alive in this universe. This leads to him being mistaken, by an underground organisation called The Preachers, for the parallel version of himself, Ricky.  

Though it is not explicitly stated or shown during the episodes, we know that Ricky and, fellow preacher, Jake were in a relationship from deleted scenes and statements made by the actors. 

Andrew Hayden-Smith, who played Jake, said that Russell T. Davies had wanted to include a kiss between the two characters, however he felt he "couldn’t push it that far". We can assume that the lines which revealed Ricky and Jake’s relationship were cut for the same reason. 

That being said, it is still clear when watching these episodes, from the manner the two interact with each other and moments such as Jake learning of Ricky’s death, that they had a particularly close, intimate relationship.

It is unfortunate and sad that this relationship was completely cut from the episodes for fear of offending, as I feel it would have made a sweet addition to the episodes. However it does give us an indication of how Doctor Who is moving forward and improving their representation of queer indivduals and relationships.. Though there has yet to be a romantic kiss shared between two characters of the same gender, there have been numerous queer couples featured on the show since Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel aired in 2006.

Queer Representation and Visibility in Doctor Who - River Song

Along with Captain Jack Harkness, River Song is one of the few recurring queer characters we see in Doctor Who. She first appeared in Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead before becoming a recurring character, appearing in several episodes each series. It is during this first appearance that we learn River is, as has recently been confirmed by Steven Moffat, bisexual. This is revealed during an exchange she has with Mr Lux in Silence of the Library.

Lux: Professor Song, why am I the only one wearing my helmet?
River: I don’t fancy you.

Since this initial illusion to her bisexuality, River’s non-normative orientation has not been mentioned again. In fact many fans of the show aren’t even aware of River’s sexuality. 

Though there may be many possible reasons that River’s orientation doesn’t feature heavily in her storylines, the fact is Steven Moffat created a bisexual character. Regardless of his reasons for doing this (I doubt it was to increase the visibility of queer folk in the mainstream media) he had an responsibility to do justice to that characters orientation. What he actually did was ignore River’s bisexuality in favor of a storyline where River is completely stripped of her autonomy as her entire existence revolves completely around The Doctor.

I personally find this erasure to be incredibly hurtful. By not making River’s bisexuality explicit in canon Moffat implies that queer folk are not worth the time and effort it would take to give us representation. We are not worth interesting, complex character arcs and storylines. We are not worth the representation which is given to heterosexual folk by default. 

It suggests to me that Steven Moffat has no desire to actually improve the representation of queer folk in the media, though he has implied otherwise, citing fans annoyance at a lack of queer characters in series 5 as “the one criticism I’ve ever listened to”.

I also feel it is symbolic of a shift in the representation of queer folk on Doctor Who. Whilst under RTD representations weren’t flawless, they were subtly executed and really served to normalise queerness. Moffat, on the other hand, lacks the understanding of erasure and marginalisation, which RTD clearly had, which results in poorly executed, heavy handed representations.

River Song had the potential to be another really great queer character but, ultimately, she is just another female character Moffat has fucked over.
