Good grief that was awful. I knew she would be irritating having watched her cringe worthy interviews pre Dr. Who but....? tonight's episode should have stunned, should have been yeh this is a good move'. No. Dr. Who should not be gender specific -it is an alien FFS, not a northern lass with a 'gob on'. So what will be her USP? A sonic tampon? god help the Daleks should they meet her 'at her time of the month' annihilation . Could be interesting. We have been avid Dr' Who fans forever. First episode this series 4/10... could do better.

I read the OP and knew it was tongue in cheek and can't understand why some others didn't !! AL is as entitled to her opinion as anyone on here is and I can't understand some of the nastiness, par for the course on here I suppose. I personally do not like a female Dr. Who and couldn't care less what anybody thinks of that. Mind you I've not been a fan of Dr. Who for a while...

i really enjoyed it.
What's wrong with equal opportunities anyway, can't see why Dr Who can be classed as a victim, its just a tv show.
"Upon encountering the remains of fellow Time Lord the Corsair in "The Doctor's Wife", the Doctor refers to the Corsair as both male and female, hinting that Time Lords can switch genders upon their regenerations; this is confirmed in "Dark Water", in which the Master, previously seen in various male incarnations for ..."

Get over yaselfs thinking from a human level when ur watching a load of aliens absolutely pathetic.
Anyone sitting watching a two-hearted alien, thousands of years old, whizzing around the galaxy in a converted Police Box defeating all manner of dangerous foe from hundreds of different planets, dimensions and timelines who finds the idea of The Doctor being female stretches credulity, is taking things faaaaaar too seriously.

jackthehat. You have obviously never been to a Dr. Who convention. Fans take this verrrrrryyyyyyy seriously.

Wonder what star wars fans would think if Luke Skywater decided he was really a woman trapped in a mans body and became Lucy Skywalker.

Or Darth Vader ....... "No I am your mother..............."

yes spath I'm quite aware Dr. Who is made up LOL! though...hang on.....whats that pink telephone box doing in my back yard ?????????
Ey up...it's T'Doctor Lass..... ;-)
I love the fact that the Tardis is still presented as a police box, which was part of the street furniture in 1963, when the series first aired.

Apparently the Tardis can take on any external appearance to blend in with its surroundings, but this piece of kit was broken, leading the Tardis to always look like a 1960's police box, even though you would need to be in your sixties to remember them!
"Fans take this verrrrrryyyyyyy seriously."

I'm sure the "fans" realise time lords can change gender during any regeneration so they're not getting their emotions tied up in this nonsense.
"Wonder what star wars fans would think if Luke Skywater decided he was really a woman trapped in a mans body and became Lucy Skywalker. "

If it was common for the Jedi to change gender then i'm sure fans would not have a problem with it. Learn the lore then you can 'do this..'
I am eagerly awaiting the Christmas Nativity plays. Mary and Joseph. Two men, two women two non specific gender. Baby Jesus will have to grow a bit before deciding.
Again take your over emotional PC hating attitude and apply it to a series that's not about gender and complete body changing aliens.
It's 'obvious' is it......?
Funny, that.

The characters in Star Wars don't regenerate.

Only one character featured in the Nativity Plays ever regenerated, SparklyKid.

Calm down dear! :-)
Sorry i must have been confused by the hysteria in the OP and the replies to some posts
William Hartnell was the best. The worst was david tennent, his only acting ability seemed to be that he could open his eyes very wide without blinking.

Andy, well we haven't seen the new Tardis yet as she's ( Dr. T'Lass) lost it. :-)
Could be big changes, nail bar, waxing salon, who knows?
Question Author
I think so spath. Try reading the post again with your tongue in your cheek. You're good at that ;-)
Question Author
Sparklykid: Very true, and exceptional talent. ;-)
So, you don't actually mind that the doctor is a woman?
Question Author
spath, I made it clear in further posts that if it has to be a woman then I would not have chosen this actress/female actor. She is irritating. Despite feeling there was no need to 'feminise' the role, I may warm to the idea of a woman in the role but not her.
There'll be plenty room for baths full of coal and the whippets...
