Aptitude

It took the Doctor quite some time to realise that the appreciative comments from his companions were not in relation to his in-depth commentary on architecture. Nor were their gasps of appreciation over the restoration work being done to bring the building back to its former glory.

Far from admiring the work of one of the universe's greatest artists, Rose and Jack were drooling over the local talent.

"Mmm..." Rose was watching a pair of burly stonemasons work on a column. "Nice lines." Jack made gurgling noises of agreement.

The Doctor sighed. Humans were so easily distracted by shiny objects.

Nice work, as always. Now that I've finished watching the first season of Dr. Who, I've come to appreciate something. I had assumed you were bending things a bit to have Jack interested in both sexes, just as Buffy fans will take, say, Xander and make him bi, even though he isn't in the series. But no -- now that I've watched him a bit, it's clear you're not exaggerating at all! Which, as Woody Allen said, gives him twice as much of a chance to get a date on a Friday night.

So you've now encountered the flexible Captain Jack, I'm a little surprised they didn't censor him out in the US.

censored out
So am I -- I was a bit taken aback when he kissed the Doctor right on the lips, and I'm easy. (*gasp* We don't DO that on American TV! It's okay for women to kiss, but men ...)

Have been writing Who for a while now. I just needed to distract you with a shiny object.

Perhaps if you told me who you were, what your blog is and what pictures you're talking about, you might get an answer.
