The new special killed off a gay character, a security guard named Richard played by Connor Calland, twenty five seconds after introducing him.
Many twitter users complained about this development, with one pointing out the similar fates of other gay characters who were introduced in the latest season of Doctor Who. "Am I the only that has noticed if you are openly gay in this series of #DoctorWho, you are gonna be dead within ten minutes? The security guard tonight, Frankie in Arachnids and Alfonso in Witchfinders.”
