Have nothing against trans anybody, or women, or African-Americans, just adamantly opposed to changing the basic core identity of a character in an unrealistic fashion (and yes, having James Bond suddenly become Jane Bond, or Jimmie Bond from South Philly, is unrealistic)

The last one’s final season was one of the weakest of the new Doctor Who seasons so far (it felt kind of pointless) and the last Christmas special was just weird. There wasn’t a single episode in this season that I didn’t like, let’s see how the New Year special is. It’s not only the female Doctor, who works for me, but the entire team.

Doctor Who (like most good shows actually) is mostly about dynamics between the Doctor and his companions, I thought in Whitaker and her pals they had a good team that was completely ruined by very poor storytelling; Chibnall wrote some good ones in previous seasons though, a pity really he couldn’t step up as a producer.

Psst! You’re very obviously in the wrong place to be sneering about women, cis or trans.

Just like even the thought of a female James Bond (even if the ‘actress’ is transgender) is utter claptrap

Even sister (who is a he-yuge! Doctor Fan) didn’t like that version

It ruins the pacing of the dialogue.

And yeah, the past 2 doctors are really weakly portrayed, but that’s the fault of the writers, not the actors.

Of course – that comic relief piece – Curse of the fatal death – did it before…
The outfit – it’s better-looking than the multicolored coat – but I’m anti-fasion – wouldn’t comment on someone’s look from an astetic point if my life depended on it. Just saying that showing legs means she has to invest more time in self-grooming than the guys – life’s not fair…
