I am a huge Doctor Who fan and that is amazing! I love the BAD CAT. I have to ask though, is there a public file for the dalek in the background? I’m going to have to do some digging when I’m done with work to make me some Doctor Who goodies! Well done.
We once talked about replacing our front door with a TARDIS-looking door. This way when you open it, it’s bigger on the inside. But… like so many projects… it stalled at talking.
100% agree. I’m not thrilled that The Doctor’s a woman. Obviously I have nothing against women. Just that for nearly 60 years that has never been the case. And it seems doing it now is “just to do it.” It doesn’t bring anything to the character. AND, historically, the female leads on Doctor Who were always there to challenge The Doctor in ways that absolutely made women shine. They NEVER had stupid or weak women.
But… Regardless of the gender of The Doctor, this current cast is either totally wrong, or totally written wrong. None of it works for me. I’m nearly 48 years old. I’ve been watching Doctor Who literally for as long as I can remember (Thanks, Aunt Crystal!). Yet I’d practically given up mid-season on the last. Then when that stupid Timeless Child thing came up, I called it quits. I’m done with Doctor Who. It’s an amazingly-disappointing thing to say. Give me back Russell T. Davies or John Nathan-Turner to run the show. Frankly, Moffat onward has been spiraling the show downwards to the pit it’s in today.
WOW. Yeah… Sorry… I’m rather passionate about this. Okay. I’m gonna go now. Deep breaths… Deep breaths…
I suppose it’s not. But, I’m coming from the perspective of “Why would anybody have anything against women?” Who doesn’t love women? My Mom was a woman. My Sister. My Wife. My Daughters. All women. LOL! But that doesn’t mean I want them to play Superman, or Captain Kirk, or Han Solo. This isn’t about the actor. This is about the character. It’s not about representation. Women have always been represented in Doctor Who. Since day 1. Always one or more female leads, always critical to the show in every respect.
Heck no. Kinda like The Simpsons. Watched it 30 years ago, can still watch it today. VERY little has changed.
Changing The Doctor’s gender doesn’t affect the story. I don’t want The Doctor to be female. We’ve seen female Time Lords, there’s no reason there can’t be another. Regardless, that doesn’t mean Jodie Whittaker couldn’t be the best female Doctor. Maybe she is. Like I said, maybe it’s just poor writing. I thought the same thing of Capaldi. I truely thought he could be the single best “classic Doctor” that we’ve seen in decades, but his Doctor was written SO poorly that it really fell far short of that, and I don’t at all think it was his fault.
This is true for you, but to girls and women of all other ages I’d imagine it’s very different.
Representation is more important than we (40s ish white men) generally understand. Even now as I make the case for it, I know deep down that my understanding is academic. When a visible minority gets a high profile role in the arts it often elicits a visceral reaction from that group. I’ll never understand what it feels like but I do see how important it is for those groups, so I make room for them.
