If the scriptwriters have any sense, they won't play up the feminine side of the Doctor.  After all, they didn't play up his masculine side when he was a man.

From what I've heard, I think the season is going to be a shake up season, with a bit of a different style, with the new show runner.  The doctor being female is just part of it.  Can't really say either way until I see it.   As long as they don't focus too much on her being female.....   like how many times did the doctor get slapped?  Will they still do stuff like that or avoid it because she's female.  Also could have some good Vastra storylines.

I wonder if the Doctor will still be in deeply in love with Rose?  And does that mean the Doctor will be a lesbian?  Or is he/she gender-neutral when it comes to his/her feelings?  There's a whole new set of storylines right there!

May not matter one way or the other as the new Doctor won't be visiting Rose anytime soon.  Besides, I think Rose has been plenty busy with the Meta-Crisis Doctor in that other universe.  :wink:

Good for the Doctor I say !!
Might change up the dynamics between the doctor and her assistant(s) !

But anyway, the Doctor shall remain ... the Doctor !
And Daleks wil be Daleks ...

My wife is a massive Doctor Who fan and I never really understood the appeal of the recent series of Doctor Who.

However, Capaldi changed my mind, and I loved him as the doctor, simply because he wasn't a twat like the other recent regenerations before him.

I will be interested to see where they go with the story and the dynamics that take place. In my opinion the Doctor could be male, female, transgender, intersex, part robot part human - it doesn't matter frankly seeing as the Doctor is an alien anyway. Also the story in the latest season had quotes and references from the Doctor's mouth referring to gender not being a significant factor in our world, and he did state a number of times about this throughout the latest season.

And all that rubbish about what the actor did prior to her role in Doctor Who - I'm sure once she is on the screens as the Doctor all that will be forgotten by most. It shouldn't matter anyway...

@Dante
Yes I preferred it when the companions were people who had accidentally stumbled on the TARDIS of the Doctor and got pulled in the the story.

I've never liked the idea that companions are in any way "special" or that the Doctor keeps revisiting them at home, asking them to go on an adventure with him, like they are playmates or something.

The companions are our way into the story and, as such, they need to be the "everyman" (or woman) so we can insert ourselves in. That's why this last few series has felt so alienating.

The reason why the writers keep doing the “Special Companion” thing is because The Doctor needed a reason to bring along a fragile human into such dangerous situations. Martha was the last companion to quit traveling with The Doctor. After The Doctor wiped Donnas memory to save her life he didn’t have a full time companion until he met Amy. And he only picked her and Rory up due to the whole crack in time mystery. And the fact that one of the cracks was in Amy’s bedroom. After they were killed he only started traveling with Clara because she was “The Impossible Girl”. And once she was killed, he spent 70 something years working as a University Professor/Prison Guard, until he met Bill. And since Bills time on the TARDIS ended with her getting a hold shot through her chest and turned into a Cyberman, the new Doctor will probably be reluctant to bring along another human companion as well. However, since the next companion is a middle aged man, and most people don’t care when they die, The Doctor will probably have no problem putting him in all sorts of dangerous situations.

As for the topic at hand, I will not have any problem with The Doctor being a woman as long as she continues to be well written and her gender is not the focus of her character. However, the way the entertainment industry has been going these last few years I’m not optimistic about that. Hopefully the writers don’t make the female Doctor into the most perfect version of the Doctor ever. Where she never makes a mistake and is perfect, perfect in every way, because she now has vagina power.
