With Regard to the New Doctor

Those of you who have a problem with the Doctor being a woman: GROW THE FUCK UP.  This is the 21st century.  There is no reason a woman can’t be brilliant and supremely confident, and that is so profoundly healthy for science fiction.

I have always had a rule: all new Doctors get two years to make the role their own.  This casting changes nothing.

I can’t wait to see what she and Chibnall do with it.

    Looking forward to seeing the Doctor as a woman. I expect some slight changes in attitude and how The Doctor deals with Companions. I don’t know exactly how things will change but some change is needed. The last few Doctors were visually boring. Waiting to see how the female expression of The Doctor dresses and acts.

    It will be interesting to see how the new Doctor deals with Darlaks, Weeping Stautues, et al. More lethally, or less?
