I love this! And I love that they're finally giving us a female Doctor. (Especially since they're putting her in an ugly, 1970s-style outfit. So Doctor. :D )

I think it's less burning and more that like, exploding thing Time Lords do when regenerating.
Which to be fair is iirc much more painful than just burning xD

Well, you know Tom Baker did float the idea of there being a female Doctor replacing him, before Peter Davidson was cast.

Personally though, my favourite Doctor was Jon Pertwee, so take that for what you will.

While not into Dr. Who, the reason is clear:

To change a character in such a big way (and I'm not talking alone about men -> woman, she's also young and pretty) that seemed to have been male for thousands of years and that all of sudden. I think, if they would have made her a female, older prof type for example and not a "young blondie", it would have been way easier for fans to accept.

That said: it will depend a lot of what the authors make out of it. If the docotor is suddenly all about "oh, I'm a woman now, bla bla", while as far as I know never was a lot about "I'm a man!", this will just ruin the character.

And these are not all problems.

And a female time lord is not exactly anything new (there was one before and more competent and powerful than the doctor) nor a change of sex (Master).

To be honest, It seems more like a gimmick to try to get ratings.

I honestly have a feeling that these big media companies are just using Feminism as a marketing scheme to sell off badly made shows.

It would have been criticized as a marketing gimmick even if the Doctor hadn't turned into a woman until 2071. That's exactly the kind of covert sexism this sequence is lampooning.

That's a bold claim to make, and one you know you can't prove. Also, isn't just passing all of the negative feedback as sexism as strawman argument?

These companies couldn’t care less about Feminism or Gender Equality, they just see it as a easy way to make money.

And The new Ghostbusters would still be a badly written nostalgic reboot cash-in in a sea of badly written nostalgic reboot cash-ins even if the cast was all male.

But i liked the Ghostbusters reboot.

Though this 'Female Doctor Who" is an obvious PC media stunt, at least it is not in your face about it.

It wasn't as godawful as everyone said, but it wasn't great, either. It was just meh. If not for the all-female cast and the controversy surrounding them, it would be completely forgettable.

Yes the Ghostbusters remake was bad, but it is canoncial that a time lord can regenerate, they hired a great actress and while I'm not excited about the showrunner, regeneration has always been a ratings grab, but it's a ratings grab that makes sense plot wise. Let's give her a season before criticizing like we did for Capaldi.

The Ghostbusters remake wasn't bad because it used female main characters, it was bad because the main characters didn't have the same level of on-screen chemistry as the originals did and the two least interesting of them got all the focus.

Again, I would love to have a female Doctor. Just don’t want her as a badly written cliche, or her to be ruined by badly written stories.

There are people who cannot stand the thought of losing things in the progress towards equality. Part of it, they want very badly to believe things are already equal. That way, they don't have to ever do anything to make things better for others, and anything that does balance things is felt as a loss.

And that could easily change with a little understanding of statistics and... listening? Crazy thought there.

changing the doctor's gender does nothing for equality, it is only a gimmick. If you wanted something to help equality have one of his female companions get a spin off show. I think that would be worth watching.

This change will affect how the doctor addresses problems and how people around the doctor act and react. Gender does matter. Don't get me wrong. As a long time fan I'm rooting for her to do a good job. But things will be different.

I could care less about progress and such. I am more suited to the action of merits and the new actress is very skillful at the role. Thus, she is suited for the job. I think that is worth more than anything else.
