I think that since there have been so many male Doctors, a female Doctor would be a nice change in pace. Do you agree or disagree?
I kind of do, for a change of pace, but I think it would cause way more problems than it's worth. After eleven generations of being a British male, it would be really hard to handle a girl or an alien or a male of a different race. So, overall, I think they should leave well enough alone.

One generation of a female Doctor might be a little shocking, but it might be a good idea for at least one episode. An AU, if you will.

I think it would be interesting. Like if for an episode or two he for some reason is a she.

Personally, I have no problem with the idea of a female doctor. I can _maybe_ see where people might take issue--but meh.

As for race. I find it thoroughly preposterous that someone who can suddenly become a different height, different build, different apparant age, different personality quirks, so thoroughly different would somehow be limited in possible melanin level.

I'm willing to argue about whether women and men are fundamentally different. I am not prepared to entertain that the genetics of race are sufficiently relevant to preclude Doctorhood.

They could do a little special. Sort of like an alternate ending while we wait for the actual series to start back up again. A nice couple of episodes to busy us Whovians that has no real power over the actual series. As for the actress, I have absolutely no idea where to even start.

I'm not saying that in the Whovian universe, there is anything standing in the way of the Doctor being female, Middle Eastern, African, or Silurian. I am simply saying that in our universe, portraying a character who has for eleven generations been portrayed as a British man, to suddenly change the sex, skin tone, or even accent would be more bothersome than it's worth. In particular, Time Lords appear to have some power over how they regenerate, so unless the Doctor, at the moment of 'death', has some prepossession to become a girl or a Mexican, he overall seems to lean toward the Englishman's appearance, and there's no reason why that should change.

He wants to be a ginger, so start there. Get a natural ginger or have a really good actress dye her hair ginger.

Yes and just because The Doctor is a girl she shouldn't be all over any man that passes by, so maybe a character with elements of Donna and her sexuality can be a bit like Jack to shake things up (since she was a he for so long)

Remember when the 11th Doctor was freaking out because he thought he was a girl? That was funny.

I think it would be funny if they had The Master regenerate into a female or an alien, The Doctor's reaction would most likely be priceless as would The Master's. rofl
