Sacrilege. That would be like a female Elvis impersonator. Dr. Who has always been male.

I could be wrong, but isn't a woman pretending to be something that's a traditionally male role an example of cultural appropriation?

They've been working towards this for awhile. To satisfy a particular segment of their audience, they've carefully set the precedent, over the past couple of seasons, of Time Lords being able to switch genders. It was pretty clear that it would be a woman or a black man.

Slightly surprised they didn't just cast a black woman and kill two birds with one stone!

I'm fairly relaxed about it, we've had a dozen male Doctors, some great, some not so great. If a female doctor works well then fantastic. If not then they'll reboot it in a couple of seasons anyway.

Also thought Missy was a great character. Hopefully that bodes well for what they do with a female Doctor.

You Cis-gendered jackasses make me sick. Why do you hate non-binary people?

It's amazing that people are pissed about her being a woman and no one mentions that they are breaking the rules- time lords are restricted to 12 regenerations - so Capaldi should have been the last

Trans gendered black/Asian mix married to a Southeast Asian man. They have two adopted children who refuse to disclose their gender.

In The Time of The Doctor, he's granted a new regeneration cycle, which is typically understood to mean he gets a new set of 12 regenerations.

They just suspended filming because she couldn't park the TARDIS.

how many of you actually watch the show as opposed to just looking for something to get riled up about? Don't like the way it's going? Don't watch it. It's a slightly campy Brit sci-fi show, for crying out loud.

that said i miss Capaldi. Wish he would have done a Dr. Malcolm Tucker for a comedy relief and sign off with Shuttity up and fuckity bye. Michelle Gomez was also fantastic, and I really liked Pearl Mackie.

So original, except technically the Doctor never flew the Tardis properly, so it's a moot point.

Yup, and about the only person who knows how to fly the Tardis properly is another woman, River Song.
