As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

zeropotential said: Would you agree with Moffat's assertion that the Doctor is the ultimate autocratic liberal?
I’d want to see the actual Moffat quote I’m responding to, preferably in context.
"The ultimate hypocrisy at the heart of the Doctor, which is fun to poke a stick at, is that he’s so nasty about soldiers and about people who carry guns, yet look at him - always in the middle of the fight, usually taking command, and I’m not so impressed at his refusal to pick up a gun when he’s inclined, occasionally, to blow up entire planets! I think [character name excised] would say, ‘Look, I picked up a gun to save that guy’s life. You blow up a planet, and you sod off.’ And I think that’s a good character trait of the Doctor’s. I like that he’s the ultimate autocratic liberal - you know, the fascist liberal. It’s what I love about the Robin Hood thing because it reminds us that the Doctor never stops being a nobleman. He’s a high-born nobleman, used to wealth and privilege, who decided to come down among us lot and help out. He thinks he’s one of the guys, but never stops assuming he’s in charge and that people will make him tea. You love the Doctor but you do think, ‘You’re a bit of an arse and you really, really, do think everybody’s here to carry stuff for you.’ That’s true throughout the Doctors, however ‘men of the people’ they pretend to be. They’re really wonderful men trying to help everybody but the Doctor does, like Robin Hood, expect to be in charge. He doesn’t really tolerate being second in command. He’s helping out the people, so long as he can be the boss person with the best bow and arrow - and one day that will come back to haunt him.”

Right, so this is overdue.
I think this picks at a real scab in Doctor Who, which is the way in which it is, at its heart, still based around a genre of adventure stories featuring aristocrats. There are class issues implicit to the Victorian adventure stories that Doctor Who is a modern day heir to. Indeed, I think you can argue that class issues, broadly speaking, are the original sin of the genre. So I like those being foregrounded.
I think Into the Dalek did a nice job with this, finding a reason for the Doctor’s dislike of soldiers that isn’t the obvious “rejection of violence” reason that, as Moffat points out, doesn’t work. Instead he dislikes soldiers because they take orders, which is exactly the sort of thing someone who’s lived for ages with the privilege of not having to take orders would see as a character flaw.
So yes. Interested to see how far Moffat goes at picking at this, and how he gets out of the narrative collapse implicit in it.
