a reply to: DBCowboy>>> The brits can do comedy, Black Adder and Red Dwarf is proof of that. Even Monty Python was a guilty pleasure of mine back in the 70s although it just seems weird now. And they can do drama. Upstairs Downstairs, Downton Abbey. Yeah, they can be a little stiff and pretentious, but they give it their all. But they SUCK at SCI FI. Sorry, they do. I watched the old Dr. Who's and even past the cheap sets the plots were lame. Now they'll do a woman Dr. and that is just a hook to keep interest in a played out tired franchise and stop it from crawling wearily into the grave. Next it will be a black Dr. Same with James Bond. The franchise is spent and creatively stale.

And I cant find anything that says time lords are gender locked. Hell, I can't even find if they have different bits down there. They might all have both sets of tackle, apart from the top hamper, obviously.


That's just the way it has been portrayed up until very, very recently. And given the current social climate, it feels like a gimmick.

Speaking as a toxic male, I will watch the show.


I hope they stay true to the character and do all the "Timey wimey" stuff.


At least she can just skip past her "Lady Time" and won't be having to get angry with everyone.


I just don't want to watch a Doctor Who, who sits on the sofa, eats chocolates, drinks wine and watches old Hugh Grant movies.


They do some weird storylines, so you never know....Some sort of poison that needs to be neutralised by staying still, eating chocolate liqueurs, drinking Chardonnay and then excreted through tear glands...


Oh god.

My wife has been poisoned!


You need to check her with celery!

Ooooo, think Denzel Washington. He'd be awesome.



George Lazenby was foreign enough. I think if a yank was to be James bond, they may as well just pull the plug,


I am sure Denzel could learn to speak with a British accent in no time, he is an actor after all.

Maybe, because of the stuff going on around us, we are more prone to seeing this stuff in a negative light? I get the way people are fed up with bandwagon umping writers trying to change entire stories to be "culturally woke" and all that stuff, but this doesn't strike me as the same thing at all. Yes it's being flogged around in a similar way, but as I said, it doesn't hit me as being odd in the way that say comic book or literary characters have their gender and race changed.

Same applies to a male Dr. Who, who can simply skip past periods of rage.

Same here DB
Already prepared for the inevitable societal breakdown myself. Not unexpected here either, been ready for almost a decade. Ever since it became clear how dependent and non self sufficient so much of our country is. The godless & degenerate nature of so many also add to this, along with their total reliance on the increasingly invasive State

Problem is, those who didn't prepare may stupidly think they're entitled to the preparations of those who did, hence the need for strong & staffed defensive emplacements
Some people probably still think the government would come to their rescue, since they put all their eggs in one basket and actually trust them

AND BE SAFE FOLKS!!!!

Sure, he can play Rigsby in Rising damp, but Bond should be a Brit, or at least a Commonwealth citizen.

Bond is not a codename, it's an actual person. Denzel can't be Bond.

It takes so little to offend the masses.
