...you know, it's an amusing coincidence that in Curse of the Fatal Death, the Thirtheenth Doctor was Joanna Lumley...

So long as the writers treat her as the doctor who happens to be female rather than the female doctor, we're good.

Something tells me that resistance to this would have been greater only months ago.
That is, before Wonder Woman dropped.

In any case I'm good with it. ;)

Yeah, IF.

My hopes aren't high, though - I expect the new Doctor's run to be accompanied by a constant drumbeat of smug, self-congratulatory "Look how progressive we are!" and "See how much more enlightened Thirteen is compared to those... those males!" equine byproduct, both off- and on-screen.

Yeah I don't claim Wonder Woman as a causality. ;)

I was going to add something, but the combination of what you two chaps have written sums it up for me. I'm not the biggest fan of the modern/reboot series as compared to the 70s and 80s as it stands.

Well Moffat has left as show runner/writer so you kever know, perhaps you'll be pleasantly surprised. ;)

Perhaps. I've only got up to the beginning of the Matt Smith episodes and didn't really like Russell Davies' particular touch and the rushed nature of the modern episodes.

I liked some of the spoof postings floating around on Sunday.......

'Thousands of Dr Who fans watch sport for the first time'

'There are two kinds of people watching this match, those that like Tennis and those who like Dr Who'

So very different from all those times that the Doctor has been portrayed as being much more enlightened than us primitive, violent humans then?

Have to respectfully disagree with you on that. Missy was IMVHO the best interpretation of the Master since Delgado. I will really miss Michelle Gomez.
She does seem to have a history of playing crazy characters. :lol:

Yes, lets judge the new lead and the writers before we've seen anything other than the introduction trailer.
If anything I predict it will be Broadchurch in Space. :D

EDIT: Just heard an interesting bit of Who trivia. The idea of a female Doctor was first suggested back in the '80s by Sydney Newman.

Really looking forward to this because Moffat has finally bowed out. Tired of his self indulgent meta writing.

Moffat wrote some very good episodes, but I think the shows that occured where he was the showrunner were nowhere near as good as Davies.

What'd be great is if they made #13 as hardass as #9.

I have honestly never "gotten" Doctor Who. I always heard from it by my brother growing up from his young days watching reruns (and makes me wonder how many lost videos he might have seen) as well as SF Debris' recaps, but I get the relaunch even less.

At least the original run had a cheesiness that could be endearing like Star Trek, I guess.
