I would love a female Doctor. I could see it succeeding and being a lot of fun. I mean, imagine if Jenny hadn't just been around for one episode...that gives us a clue. But I'd just say that Moffat would have to leave or they have to get more female writers in, or otherwise she'll end up like River, with insufferable smugness.
The Doctor IS insufferably smug anyway, male or female. Not sure how a smug woman is worse than a smug man.

Stop posting this crap. Full stop, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
What forum rule have I broken exactly? Not being difficult, would just like to know as it felt like I was just expressing a minority opinion?

Wouldn't it be better if people just debated my points instead of just telling me to shut up? Or maybe I'm being completely unreasonable here?

^ Yeah. And Clara's punching. But that was obviously played for laughs.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

He deserves it in Impossible astronant. She is slapping him for putting her through that twice. Once as the girl in the suit and making her watch it. She is probably also trying to keep up appearences, since she can't let on that she knows what actually happened.

I don't remember any other slapping. I remember Rory hitting him but that is about it.

Yes but I agree it would be a double standard. If the Doctor slapped a woman for ANY reason, or say, pushed her against a wall even, women's groups would be up in arms.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

Yes it would be a double standard if he slapped river and we got upset over that. I just don't see dalekjim's idea that all the women are treated badly or they treat the men badly. I have no problem with the women or how they are written.

I would have no problem with a female doctor. As long as it is what they want to do and not catering to a small but extremely loud group in the fanbase. (or basically a ratings ploy)

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

Forgot that Clara also slapped him in Nightmare in Silver. Again, it had context though.

I guess they solved the problem of what Doctor will be shown in December for the Doctors Revisted on BBC-A, the 12th month: the 12th Doctors episode.

You haven't made any "points," and you are being unreasonable.

"women live life as consequence-free bitches" is probably the most reprehensible string of words I've ever seen on Trek BBS. Drop this shit, immediately.

I'd like more historical stories. Preferably more set in other countries, and preferably a few "pure" historicals featuring no aliens. History is interesting on its own.
I would totally dig a pure historical. Unfotunately, I think I read somewhere that BBC now considers the show to be strictly science fiction, and a historical isn't even likely with the novels or audios let alone the show itself.

Which I think is a bit shortsighted. Yeah, it's fun seeing cyborgs in the wild west, Daleks with Churchill, Silurians and Sontarans in Victorian times, and so on, I think a historical done properly has the potential to be the stand out episode of the season. Especially it basically be new ground for the new series to cover.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

The audios do a straight historical or two per year, I'd say, which is about right. It's a limited genre.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

I'd love more pure sci-fi settings but the problem is I don't like the choices they make. Star Whales. Dystopia. More dystopia. A huge library planet but it's turned into a horror story. More horror and more dystopia. New Earth was first about zombies and then dystopian monsters that ate cars.

The Rings of Akhaten had a really cool setting though. More of that in the future, please.

Sure, but there's definitely room for the TV series to do one historical episode after eight years.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

I never get the problem people would have with a true historical that didn't feature a monster? It is a bit silly to suggest that every era of human hisotry was filled with aliens, and I don't see why a pirate, or a king, or an Aztec priest or a 20's mobster couldn't be just as good a villain if he didn't have a Dalek hidden away directing his every move!
