According to Furries' news site flayrah.com, the first episode of the BBS' new DOCTOR WHO second season will feature a "plague farm" in the far future in the guise of a hospital run by evil Cat people. The air date has not yet been released, noting only that the second series will begin in the "Spring of 2006". (Note: The last episode to feature any kind of cat-people was Survival, which featured the 'Cheetah People'. This was also the last episode of Doctor Who before it went on its multi-year hiatus.)
What's a Furry, you might ask?
The term "furry" originally came into existence at a science fiction convention in the late 1970s. Then, the term was used to describe one specific genre of fantasy art.

Since the 1980s, furry fandom has focused largely on animal characters...
The furry fandom, as an umbrella subculture for various interests, has grown with the advent of the Internet. Content created by furry fans (visual art, stories, music, games, etc.) on the World Wide Web covers a wide range of interests including fantasies, philosophy, recipes, sex, politics, religion, and even personal lifestyle and identity.
