    Turning DW into a woman after ll this time? It's became more about liberal advocacy than anything else. I think I'm done with it.

    I'll give her a chance.

    She can't be any worse than Capbaldi, or what ever his name is

    Are you afraid of women?

    There are many women heroes in the movies shown in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. The DPRK celebrates women - We are not afraid.

    Well, Dr. Who is pretty weird, anyway, constantly being reanimated in a different form. If you by that, why not being reanimated as a woman? OK, on that same note, Secret agent 007 James Bond will now be Jane Bond. That might be a tad odd.

    the doctor might get a different body but his mind is the same one he has had since the 1st doctor,he just has different personality quirks,but he was still a man mentally,now he will be a man stuck in a womans body.....and were did you get the Jane Bond thing?....

    Capaldi was the victim of bad sound engineering.... He didn't exactly have great companions either; hence the elevation of Missy. But to me this is somewhat beside the point. In a vacuum the new episodes could be good; but betraying the nature of the show to promote a political narrative is....whatever bad adjective.....

    I wouldn't have cared if they had brought in a woman time lord, so no. But casting her specifically as Doctor Who to promote the gender-less narrative is whack shit. I think we're all frogs in the boiling water. Three or four years ago if they had tried this, there would have been serious issues. But now that a generation of snowflakes has been cultivated....

    Don't be surprised if they turn him into a flamer all the same.

    He's always been a man; tampering with his identity for the sake of politics is not what I look for in a show. It's no longer about the art. It's the same reason I didn't watch Two and A Half Men after Sheen was kicked off; there was not a premium on the show's essence any more.
