Doctor Who has had a disproportionate number of gays and lesbians, gay jokes, bisexuals over the last year or two. I'm not sure what this means. Major characters, like the doctor's sidekick. Minor characters, like side-plot characters "coming out." A stabbing gay joke that kind of hurt, and some actually rather touching moments.

It's hard to tell what's "disproportionate," though. Roughly one male in 20 is gay, I don't know what the stats are on bisexuals (probably not much more, someone more educated than I am would have to say). But since gays on shows that aren't specifically about gays are a bit taboo, outside of comedy, it may just be a mild surprise factor.
