Why not come up with something completely new and creative then.


Ask the almost all-male Board of Directors at the BBC...I don't know.



They want to do more than come up with something new and creative.
They want to take males down too.


BBC men want to take men down?
Likely dealing with nancies and manjina's. Brit TV is ok, and devolves into junk several seasons in. Enough to bail on.

It's kind of stupid, and I think was driven by a PC agenda and not story so I am against it, but it is well within the Dr. Who universe so I accept it.

*That* has nothing to do with gender either.

Suits are too afraid to step off of established, successful franchises. They'd rather take a known quantity with success and try to twist it into what they'd prefer it be than make something new which is why so much that used to be so good is being remade and dying horribly.

The comics industry is suffering terribly because of this.


The new main writer is still male, so you can probably expect more of the same, with cautious exploratory twisting.

Are you trying to make a point about sexism with sexism?🤨🤨

Maybe not junk, there seems to be a good writers' gender mix, so I might watch it again with a fresh view.



BEHIND THE SCENES BBC America has revealed a list of writers and directors for the much anticipated 11th season of “Doctor Who,” starring Jodie Whittaker and set to premiere this fall. Season 11 writers include Malorie Blackman, Ed Hime, Vinay Patel, Pete McTighe, and Joy Wilkinson, while Sallie Aprahamian, Jamie Childs, Jennifer Perrott, and Mark Tonderai are among the directors.

Yes, trying to end toxic masculinity.
Last season was a perfect example.

Not at all, just stating facts.

What's wrong with taking down toxic masculinity or anything toxic on TV?

I have watched all the new Dr.Who's, it is not the fact they turned him into a her, it is all the PC and virtue signalling surrounding the doctor that I worry about.

Because their definition of toxic is ALL masculinity is toxic.

To be perfectly clear, as someone whose personal library is littered with sci-fi and fantasy, I have zero problem with non-traditional lead characters of all kinds.

The key though is that they have to be full characters and not just walking grievance group adverts. For example, I own and occasionally revisit Mercedes Lackey's Last Herald Mage trilogy. They were published round about the late '80s with the last one coming out in 1990. Herald Vanyel is a fully flashed out character, a person. Oh, and one aspect of that is that he happens to be gay.

But nowhere is he presented as "The Gay Herald" because it's more important that he's the "Last Herald Mage" so his magical ability and the problems and stresses surrounding it are far more important, even as his personal relationships, including with his life mate, are what help hold him together to the end. So that side isn't glossed over, it's there and important too.

But I guess this is a roundabout way of making my point that these days, those facets of character are the character rather than a normal aspect like we see the hero lean on his wife or love but that isn't the focus because what the hero does is the focus. Instead, the focus these days is on the gender, or the orientation, or the racial identity as though it's those things that are solely responsible for making the hero the hero.

The hero isn't great because he or she is a great person. It's because she's a woman. It's because of his or her orientation. It's because of his or her ethnicity. I hope that makes sense.

Right “facts” and oh i don’t know maybe because y’all are pushing the definition of toxicity wider and wider and look at the track record for the all women reboots that have become all the rage.. They’re far more toxic than any “misogynistic” show/movie.

The responsibility of giving the new female Dr. Who a kick ass character is up to the writers and the bosses.

Wait til they remake Stargate SG-1.

Instead of Jack O'neall it'll be Jacqueline O'neal.

SJW windbags would be my guess...

You’ll have to forgive me I’m but a simple country bumpkin. Seriously did you think I was singling you out, it was a blanket statement you’re entitled to your stinky arsehole opinion...
