The Doctor is NOT a Woman. Woohoo!!!

Okay, I know I'm a little late in all this, but I have opinions! Real, maybe semi-interesting opinions. And hey! Maybe you've heard all this before already (like I said, I'm late), but I feel like I gots to say it. I'm happy the new Doctor is not a woman.
(in fact, there he is) Seriously. I almost gave up on the whole series. Why? It's not because I hate women.
(that's me in the yellow, by the way) I'm a woman. I don't hate women. I love us. I hate it when we try to take something over, though. I kind of feel like a female Doctor would be the same as if Buffy the Vampire Slayer all of a sudden became Buff the Vampire Slayer. 'Cause that's ridiculous. Instead, they had a spinoff with Angel. Because that makes sense. And yeah, yeah, a lot of people said that Moffat introduced the idea of a gender change in the canon of Doctor Who, but I don't care what he did. The Doctor should not be a woman. And not because the title, "doctor," is male (honestly, that's a stupid argument), but because for the past 11 regenerations, HE'S BEEN A MAN! Period. If you want a show with a female timelord, have a spinoff with 10's daughter or something (that would be a really cool show. they should seriously do it), but don't take over The Doctor. So there it is. A woman who is happy that The Doctor is not a woman. And no, it's not because I want him to stay sexy (honestly, just...no). It's because I want the show to be the same show I fell in love with. And I want to have a chance to fall in love with a female timelord on a completely different show, if that ever happens.


  1. Also, I'm sorry for the lack of white space and formatting, but blogger has been acting up on me lately.

  2. I'm a purist when it comes to movies or tv shows. Leave the original as it is. I don't like the new Sherlock Holmes with the female Watson, either. It's travesty, I think. Not a fan of the actress or this series. Much prefer the RJD version or the old versions. . .

  3. While I don't mind gender changes I get what you're saying. Sometimes it's felt that a male character needs a female makeover and that can come off as demeaning as if saying an original female character can't stand on her own. Also I have to side with D.G. on the female Watson being a travesty. I don't watch or read much Sherlock Holmes but I think Watson should have been left alone.

  5. I'm happy, too. Not sure about Capaldi. It's not his age, but...I just don't know.


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
