    Video killed the Tardis star

    And now feminism has ruined Doctor Who with the BBC's recent announcement that the next Doctor will be a female.

    Why does political correctness have to ruin everything?
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    TBH, I don't care if the Doctor is a woman. It's a tv show.

    I care because it's an iconic male character, and arbitrarily making him a woman is a reflection of our perverse culture.

    They did it with The Master, and people have been asking for it to happen to The Doctor since. I think it was a dumb idea for both characters.

    ETA: If it was a reboot, or an alternate universe or something I wouldn't care. This is different IMO.

    The Master/Missy thing was left ambiguous, so it didn't really bother (I just assumed he transferred his consciousness to another body).

    I thought I saw someone say he just did it as part of regeneration. I haven't watched the show in forever. Last time I consistently watched the show was when Matt Slick was The Doctor.

    Was worth it for the Daily Mail reader reaction alone.

    The actress in question has been pretty good in everything she's been in recently, so I'm sure she'll do a great job. There's always some moaning when a new doctor is announced (though I'm saying this an an onlooker)

    If they were going for ultra PC though I think they could have done better than a white woman?

    Funny how some sci-fi fans will readily accept opening their minds to new planets, timelines, aliens, regenerations and possibilities.... but not a woman stepping into a telephone box.

    This last season featured a black lesbian companion, so they've hit the PC quota pretty squarely on the nose already.

    I can accept sci-fi tropes, but taking an established male character and turning him into a woman feels like a slap in the face to long-time fans. It'd be like a female James Bond, or a female Sherlock Holmes, or an all female GHOSTBUSTERS. It's pandering and unnecessary.

    But this is taking the thread off topic, so I'm done ranting about it.

    You obviously underestimate how low they can go. I'm waiting for the inevitable Southeast Asian transexual and the, um, "boy and his dog."

    I'm always still in trouble again
