I've been a fan since college in the mid 70's on PBS, but remember 2 Doctor Who movies w/ Peter Cushing from the 60's! When Smith became the Doctor 10 yrs ago, he pulled his hair down into his face and exclaimed, "I'm a girl!" Then you had Capaldi shoot the old General on Gallifrey who regenerated into a Black woman! That was the 1st gender change that happened we actually saw occur on screen!
The two movies made by Amicus were lifted wholely from William Hartnell serials. They really don't work well, because Cushing played the character totally differently than Hartnell did.
But, yeah, they hinted at cross gender regenerations long before they actually did one for the Doctor.
