Re: Doctor Who

I don't see any issues with her or her age. Davison and Matt Smith were not grumpy or old and were great.

Give it a chance then, but by your post it sounds like you have already decided you ardent going to enjoy it.

Personally I think it's going to be fresh and different especially with the new show runner, new composer, new TARDIS crew and new Doctor.. the teaser did get me more interested. Let's see what comes out of SDCC next week. Doctor Who panel is on the Thursday.

Re: Doctor Who

San Diego Comic Con.

The biggest convention there is. All the movies and tv for the next 12 month's always show up and there are panels and exclusive events.

Re: Doctor Who

Doctor Who is like James Bond. It has to keep reverting itself to survive. I stopped watch the last few seasons because it all become a bit of the same thing. I will watch this one given it's effectively a reboot but I don't hold out much hope it will lose the pedestrian, paint by numbers, feel that last few years had.

I gave it shot in 2005, and decided it was ok.
I'll be giving it the same chance again this time.

Re: Doctor Who

The problem I have is that although the good Dr. can change body, you have to believe it's the same person. It's a big ask for any actor, but they've mostly pulled it off. A change of sex might be stretching it . Can she convince us she's an older version of William Hartnell ?? Maybe he she can in which case it'll be worth a Bafta at least !
However hope I'm totally wrong

Really changing gender is more believable than regenerating into an entire new person. I mean he/she is a alien that travels the universe in a box which breaks the laws of physics. Being a woman is probably one of the less out there changes.

Well no, the different doctors have been acted very differently with different personalities. They are almost completely different people, perhaps different people with the same memories.

It's difficult to conceive, since you know... it isn't real.

One of the doctors (Peter Davison IIRC) said that as long as he (and the writers) included core values including a love for the human race, curiosity, humour and heroism (all of which all of the doctors have shown) in the character, they were actually quite free to develop the characters as they saw fit. Look at the first three doctors. William Hartnell was quite a serious, grandfatherly figure, who seems to prefer to think his way through problems. Patrick Troughton was a clown, and often nervous. John Pertwee was a bit of a dandy, capable of a lot of humour and would frequently fight his way out of a problem.

Davison also thinks having a woman Dr. is a naff idea. He got hounded out of social media for having that opinion.

They may have brought something new to the role but every actor thus far has managed to make you believe it the same person.

They really should have brought Colin Baker back. He's 'available' according to his agent

Which is irrelevant. The fact he has an opinion on whether the doctor should be a woman or not has no bearing on what he was apparently told about the doctor having certain core characteristics. Women can have those characteristics just as well as Men.

Re: Doctor Who

I still say the Doctor is not a woman.

Yes there is a woman playing the part of the Doctor and there for looks female for this regeneration.

However, I feel he is still the same gender as he was during his first incarnation.
