    I can feel a disturbance in the force, as millions of bitter woman hating virgins cry out in anger XD

    Nah, it'll just ruin the dynamic of the show. I can't see how the new 'doctor' will get the funny/angry personality right. The needed someone like Eccleston/Capaldi. They almost ruined it with Tennent. This has pushed it over the edge.

    Don't watch DW, but think it is good to have more women in science and SciFi in general. But I do cringe when it is reported on as an Amazing Thing that only Bigots would dislike. It shouldn't be a big issue, except in the DW fanbase which will make a big issue out of the very socks DW wears, and of course the view that the Doctor should stay male is completely understandable, especially when many will see this decision as a political one by the BBC, rather than the best one for DW.

    Could give less of a **** but it should be interesting to see how the ratings compare, particularly given the high contingent of beta males :holmes:

    Is there anything in Gallifreyan biology textbooks that say that Time Lords can't change gender when regenerating?
    I'm not aware if it.

    Nothing to say they even have to be human. They could go whole hog and literally make him a hog.

    So what? Does she get her knickers out in the first episode or something? It's not exactly a historical role.

    I don't why not. Sometimes s/he has to travel a million light-years to work.

    "I've not actually seen anyone complain about this pointless thing on this forum, so I'm going to create a thread around a stereotyped strawman to attack instead".

    I'm personally delighted that the even Tardis has now had more women in charge of it than the Labour Party.

    Unfortunately this was to be expected from the far-left, politically correct BBC. Never watching the show again.

    I'm fine with it being a woman, it's just quite annoying how they forced this so hard (making man to woman regeneration canon in the last couple of series) when nobody really asked for it. Definitely felt more like a sort of political move rather than actually thinking about the show's best interests first and foremost.

    Hopefully she's good, I don't actually know anything about the actress in question.

    Of all the actresses they managed to find one that was pretty mediocre.

    Well said!! In broadchurch she was mind numbingly boring.
    Flat and uninteresting.
