    That's for the best, watch the BBC equivalent instead.

    OK, see, Joanna Lumley in "The Curse of the Fatal Death" is a good example of what not to do.

    But I think a female Doctor could work very well if they do it very carefully. I've got this image in my head of Rachel Weisz as the Doctor and I just can't get it out. But the trick to making it work is that they need to un-sex the character. No skirts. No cleavage. She's cute and sometimes flirty without intending to be. (And when she intends to be, it turns out very badly.) She has about the same level of social graces as Matt Smith does. And while she enjoys this new incarnation, it still feels a bit alien to her if she stops and thinks about it for too long. (I have this long scene in my head where the Doctor first regenerates and realizes that something is different. She knows that she's a woman but can't quite put her finger on what the actual change has been.)

    More like, "River, could you check the TARDIS gravity settings? I seem to be a little top heavy."

    Or, "I think I lost something." (Picks up sonic screwdriver off the floor.) "Ah. There it is."

    I mentioned Watson earlier in the thread, but people thought I was crazy. :)

    Another choice: Romola Garai.

    Romola Garai definitely, Emma Watson maybe in a few years (although frankly going for someone in that age range Saoirse Ronan would be a way better choice).

    My first choice for a female Doctor still remains Spooks' Nicola Walker though...followed by Gillian Anderson

    Nope. I know I'm being a but stubborn, but even if it was played well I wouldn't want a female doctor. Even if she gave me a boner episode (which would distract me from the plot. :p). The doctor is a man, a timelord. You can't change from a timelord to a timelady in my book.

    Well you're book is wrong then. No where in the established canon of the show does it state a Timelord cannot change sex.

    If you want to be sexist about it, that's fine. But stop trying to pretend you are not.

    To be quite honest I don't mind if my book's wrong, it's my book and I prefer it.

    I'm not intending to be sexist. If I am, please know that's purely by accident. I just hate the idea of a female doctor and I can't stress that enough. In my mind it couldn't work.

    Quite the contrary, in The Doctor's Wife, the Corsair is explicitely mentioned as having had male and female regenerations.

    You might want to reread what you quoted, I think you're agreeing with my point :p

    It's the internet. 9 times out of 10 people are arguing against you. It throws everybody off when someone agrees with you.

    I don't see any reason why some Timelords can't be explicitly male, some always female and others more variable. Similar variations on gender and sexuality exist in our species. I certainly see the Doctor as being pretty solidly male, which is emphasized by moments like 11's first scene when he seems genuinely surprised that he might be a girl.
