Fair calls... I stand corrected! :)

Well now I have no issue at all, it's probably about time then.

They really have lost the plot, haven't they?

I was looking forward to a new series that approximated the Real Dr Who, with an actor who looked like the Real Doctor. I can remember the early shows, including those the BBC carefully lost, and every Doctor since has seemed like an impostor to me.

What is the plot of Dr Who for it to be lost?

Is there a "Real Dr Who"? They/it regenerates to another body so the only part  that can be called real is their memory surely. The physical body is just the carrier for that essence which is The Doctor.

Little surprise this news ; as long as the actor does eccentric well like Tom Baker   ' its a bit inevitable in this day and age imo :)

 But calls for a female Doctor go back as far as the 1970’s. Each time the lead announces they are departing, speculation   becomes rife that a woman would step into the role. However, in the world of Doctor Who female Timelords - sometimes known as Time Ladies - have been around for decades

As there are female Gallifreyans, there are female Time Lords (sometimes called Time Ladies).

To date, the series has featured several confirmed female Time Lords: Rodan ("The Invasion of Time"), Romana, Darkel (a.k.a. the Inquisitor), the Rani, and the unnamed woman who appears in "The End of Time". The voices of several female Time Lords are also heard in "The Doctor's Wife".

I'm convinced a woman can be a far darker character, and yet be forgiven and even likeable, compared to a man - being older should mean more considered and the stories always deal with something else dark-ish.  I liked Missy, and though I'm sure I liked the Master, I knew it was "more" wrong...  There's real scope here.  Regenerating into a woman isn't a problem (IMO) but I would appreciate good writing to go along with it.

Also, is it just me, but when I "obtained" the 36 series of "male dominance", I don't ever recall watching "the Rani" on the ABC in the 80's.  Great episode though.
