    I'd hope for someone more an equal, ala Jack/River/Romana, a older companion, or maybe a whole family though that might make for a crowded Tardis
    I'm thinking a male or two and a female. Three or four regulars in the TARDIS, like 2 and 5 had.

    Back when Matt Smith was announced people were up and arms about that and were pissing and moaning till his first episode. I think she'll be fine but there is a lot more scrutiny on her now.

    About ten years.
    The body count & overall violence during the runs of 5 & 6 were a bit too much, imo.

    I know it was the 1980's, but damn....

    I seem to recall Pertwee and Baker The First having massive body counts in their stories.
    And Pertwee in particular having a lot more violence, what with him being the action hero Doctor who was stuck surrounded by UNIT soldiers who always died in droves.
    So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God. So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath. So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul". So I hit him. What would you do?

    And on a non-regeneration note, Big Finish have just announced the sad news that Trevor Baxter has died. To Who fans, he was Professor George Litefoot, ally to the fourth Doctor in Talons of Weng-Chiang, and for the past several years co-star of the Jago and Litefoot audio series from Big Finish. RIP.

    Truthfully full honestly I'm torn.
    Yes logical (in universe) there is no reason why The Doctor couldn't regenerate into a female.
    Do I think it was needed: No
    Could it hurt the show: Yes it could
    Will I give her the benefit of the doubt: Absolutely I'll check out the first few episodes Peter didn't click with me.
    Does it seem a massive coincidence that a possible vocal portion of the fanbase wanted a female doctor and now we have a female doctor: yes
    do I believe in coincidence: No I don't
    The true test is how she does and what happens if the next time the doctor regenerates and they change it to a man again, that above everything else is what has me torn.
    Truth is the best policy

    *Yoohoo! Over here!*

    Over 50 years of watching TV and movies. More than that of reading fiction.

    The Hardy Boys?.... yes. Nancy Drew? .... yawn
    The Ghost?....yes. Mrs. Muir? .... yawn
    Superman?....yes. Wonder Woman?... yawn
    Bionic Man?...yup. Bionic Woman? .....out riding bike.

    With me its kind of a forgone conclusion based on decades of unvarying experience. Watching my fellow sex just bores me something fierce. I can acknowledge good looks and good acting, doesn't matter. *shrugs*

    I'll admit I liked Donna and Leela, but only when they were with the Doctor. Without him, I wouldn't watch a Donna or Leela Show.

    All cars need a fresh coat of paint after while, but if you don't address the engine, its still polishing a turd. I guess what Im saying is, I welcome change, I hope its genuine change all around and not just cosmetic. The show has been painfully mediocre for awhile, bad writing, corny and or annoying by the numbers sidekicks. I welcome the change, although the soccer mom haircut could use a relook

    Admit I kind of saw this coming when that Gallifreyan general changed to (back?) to a female and then the whole Missy thing. It's like they were testing the waters then. Was so hoping I was wrong though.

    I'm going to miss Peter Capaldi, he's been my favorite doctor since Colin Baker, but I'm certainly willing to give Jodie Whittaker a chance. I'm just glad we're not getting another hipster Doctor in the Tennant/Smith mold.

    Dr. Who fans have a pattern that repeats itself whenever a new actor/actress is cast.

    "Oh no, they're horrible. Totally wrong for the role, the show is RUINED!!"

    (Watches show for awhile):

    "OMG, BEST DOCTOR EVER!!!!!!!"

    It happens over and over and over and over and over again.

    Absolutly, but my criteria is chiefly based on what the actor did with with the material given to him. Colin was able to take a tonne of lead and produce a couple pounds of gold.

    I think I'd argue that Colin Baker and Peter Capaldi were probably the greatest actors to take on the role. It's unfortunate that their material wasn't all that great.
