    Boobs and bras? Purple, do you think that's what us women talk about??
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Wtf? And what if there were? Dude, I've read your 'love scene' so surely you don't feel uncomfortable about and mention of breasts? Hey if we're lucky we might get a few funnies about the menstrual cycle thrown in for good measure cos no sci fi show is complete without quips about the female anatomy and functionality right?

    I love a good talk about bras and boobs! I have a 12 and a 13 year old girl - our house is always talking about boobs and bras and menstruation!

    I agree that the decision to cast a female doctor has probably come about from the push on representation but there is a REASON they're pushing that... because it's needed. New iconic characters who are female are hard to create, because wide-spread popularity takes time. Creating new shows, selling new books by new authors - this is a risk for TV companies and publishers. We're fighting against literally hundreds of years of strong and inspiring main characters being men in almost every single story that's become part of our cultural consciousness - from Beowulf to King Arthur to Gandalf to Phillip Marlowe to Atticus Finch to James Bloody Bond. So if the BBC want to take a character that has traditionally presented as male (Remember the whole premise of the Doctor is that s/he changes pretty frequently!) then I embrace that as about bloody time!

    No, but the writers might and the last series had grone stale but i hope the new writing team can produce some good stories. I hope we see a more darker Dr. as was supposed to have happened on the last one but didnt.

    A popsicle stick makes a great bookmark. But eat the popsicle first. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    I'd enjoy a darker Doctor too, and she's a brilliant actor so I think she could do it. I also can't wait to see if they bring River Song back because I think there would be some serious sparks there...

    Nice to meet you too. I'm a member from way back when but have recently taken to sticking my head back above the parapet.
