I hear the Tardis is going to become a changing booth at Forever 21.


Episode #3

Does this sonic screwdriver make my butt look big?


Or, I can use this sonic screwdriver to fix the damn telephone booth, again?

Easily fixed with contact lens.
It just wouldn't sit right with all the race stuff going on about portraying non white characters with white actors.

We don't know that until we try.

Did Ian Fleming describe James Bond as a white man in any of his books...anyone...I have not read them.



Fleming took the name for his character from that of the American ornithologist James Bond, a Caribbean bird expert and author of the definitive field guide Birds of the West Indies; Fleming, a keen birdwatcher himself, had a copy of Bond's guide and he later explained to the ornithologist's wife that "It struck me that this brief, unromantic, Anglo-Saxon and yet very masculine name was just what I needed, and so a second James Bond was born".

Anglo-Saxon, named after a white guy.


In the novels (notably From Russia, with Love), Bond's physical description has generally been consistent: slim build; a three-inch long, thin vertical scar on his right cheek; blue-grey eyes; a "cruel" mouth; short, black hair, a comma of which falls on his forehead. Physically he is described as 183 centimetres (6 feet) in height and 76 kilograms (168 lb) in weight.[25] After Casino Royale, Bond also had the faint scar of the Russian cyrillic letter "Ш" (SH) (for Shpion: "Spy") on the back of one of his hands, carved by a SMERSH agent.[26]

Blue-grey eyes ... so white.

There is more, but yes, Bond is a person, not a cover identity, and he is White.

So, basically nowhere in his novels is he described as white.

There's no need. It would be like needing to describe a plantation owner in early America as white. The features described are features only white people have.

But some black people do have blue eyes.

Also some First Nations/Native Indians have blue or grey eyes... darker skin with light coloured eyes gives a nice exotic look

Mercy on our souls, indeed. But what's in a name?

May I point out, "who" is an interrogative pronoun. As such it has no gender specificity, like the word "what". On that account, perhaps the most momentous aspect of this paradigm shift is that nothing else will change -- only Dr. Who's gender. The utter absence of synchronicity around this sea, er, sex change, will itself be reckoned as monumentally (un-) momentous. So I better not say you're wrong.

Careful we may be accused of initiating a paradigm shift by stating facts. But, yes, an exotic James Bond would be an interesting change.

I am not going to write a 10 page paper for you, I showed clear evidence, you are free to read the books and see, Bond is most certainly a white guy.

In 1941 Bond joins a branch of what was to become the Ministry of Defence and becomes a lieutenant in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, ending the war as a commander.


Maybe you can tell me what black people with blue eyes, inspired by a white person, that went to Eton College in the 1930s.

I will wait for your list of people.

An exotic Tibetan Martin Luther King too.

Wait til they remake Stargate SG-1.

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


I used to like you NEO. But if someone runs with your idea, I will have to blame you. (LOL)

Personally, I HATE when they change any main character from what they were written as originally. The Dark Tower (ridiculous), even Higgins on the new Magnum PI.

And that is the whole problem with TV and movies today. Nobody has an imagination anymore. Lets just revamp old programs, with new, hip, pc spin

Instead of coming up with new, creative shows.
It just sucks.

I'm Sorry.

I felt the same way when they made Starbuck from Battle Star Galactica a girl.

This is the age we live in.

Instead of original work. We get this snip.
