    As somebody who stopped watching DW a long time ago because it boring after Christopher Ecclescake, can somebody who's angry about this give me any examples of the character of the Doctor being dictated or defined by his gender? It might help people appreciate your point if you could explain why the change in its adopted gender is going to diminish the character.
    This would be helpful. Not just the "its always been like this" argument though please

    It's funny how the people that complain about this unimportant thing are the same people that complain about feminists complaining about unimportant things. Horseshoe theory is so true.

    No matter how good the storyline is etc? How old are you?
    What does my age have to do with it?

    I didn't realise you had a TARDIS yourself. Tell me, what's the future like? You seem to have already watched an episode in with her as the Doctor. So you're obviously knowledgeable and not simply being silly because of your own prejudice without even giving the accomplished actress a chance. Now that would be silly.

    You are complaining based on a 1 minute clip with no story and little acting...

    Difference is I am male. The Dr is still a fictional alien with two hearts, who can regenerate into different human forms. Nowhere has it ever said, that human form can never be female.

    What has President Xi got to do with anything? :lol:
    The doctor is a male character, unless you ignore 50 years of history.

    Would you accept James corden playing the part if you want to be true to the character history?

    You are but they you and others are acting is childish.

    Youre making it seem like its the end of the world and your life has been ruined, without giving it a chance. As ive said it could be the best season of Dr Who ever but youd still hate it, right?

    Because it's the opposite position to those who disagree.

    He's not saying you can't have an opinion, he is saying your opinion is stupid.

    When you spend goodness knows how many seasons getting to know a character only to have the rug pulled out from us, we do have the right to be a little annoyed.

    Cant expect us to accept the whole dynamic of the show has changed in a heartbeat.

    Highly unlikely. Cant just unwrite 50 years of back history. Its the reason Connor in AC3 wasnt as good as Ezio in AC2. If it isnt broke, then dont fix it. Capaldi was great and now i feel theyve gone and ruined it. The Doctor may change but there are some parts of his personality that is fixed. This changes everything. When your audience invests heavily in a character, dont ruin it.
