    the guy has been a man for over a thousand years.....i doubt this will work out to well.....and on the Doctor Who forum,many fans were saying if they pick a woman they will probably not watch,and this was from many Brits posting.....so we will see.....

    I'm not sure how having the doctor regenerate into female form is "Anti-Men" exactly. They have already established a Time Lord can change gender or race in a regeneration.

    I thought the whole Arc with "Missy" (The Doctor's nemesis The Master in female form) was actually pretty good, but only because Michelle Gomez was such a joy to watch.

    I am looking at the over all dismantling of men all (years added up)together from shows to political movements, you name it.

    I agree they are. Given that there was considerable erosion of the ratings during Capaldi's run, I'm not sure that was a good idea.

    Then again, continuing to do the same thing over and over again, people will get bored.

    "Look, everyone, the Cybermen are back!"

    "Again?"

    It follows the same pattern every time

    1. New Doctor named
    are they crazy?
    this is the best doctor ever.
    why are those idiots making a change now?
    2. First couple of shows with new doctor.
    I guess it's OK, but it's not as good as it was.
    I'll still watch it, but I don't expect it to last much longer
    Writing is pretty good, I guess the new guy will do, but it could be better
    3. A few shows in. He's no longer the NEW Doctor. He's just the Doctor.
    not sure why I didn't want this guy. he's different than the one before, but still pretty good.
    4. New Doctor named
    are they crazy?
    this is the best doctor ever.
    why are those idiots making a change now?

    I'm not sure if that's entirely true, the fans never really warmed up to Colin Baker or Peter Capaldi. But mostly, it's the case. And they do lose fans. My neice was a big fan of Matt Smith, but she stopped watching after Capaldi became the Doctor.

    Looking at Whittaker's IMDB page, I've seen her in a couple of things prior to this, including Broadchurch.
