I would not be okay with Steven Moffat as the writer to develop a female Doctor. If he could take the strongest female character in the Sherlock Holmes Canon (Irene Adler) and reduce her to a Pussy Galore wannabe, I have no faith in his ability to take one of the most enduring characters of the last half-century into uncharted gender territory.
I felt completely the opposite about Adler. She was awesome and that was the best episode of the show so far.
