Re: [drwho-121] Wow, big news today..

a friend of mine was just telling me this week that he had mentioned the same things we've mentioned here (a non-caucasian/british and/or a female doctor) on another dr who site/blog and he got such a harsh backlash from actual british fans, he couldn't even believe it.  so i wonder how much fan reaction REALLY plays into such decisions.  in other words, while it certainly would take the show in a new direction (especially regenerating into a female), and would certainly add to the depth and complexity of the story, would they defer to another white british male just to pacify the majority (if they are the majority) or at least the most vocal of dr who fans?

i also submitted (to my friend) that if they were going to have a female doctor, in my opinion, the most interesting time to do it would have been during river's lifetime.  i think it would have been a very compelling storyline to have river still "married" to the doctor and spending time with the doctor when he became a female.  alex kingston could have played that part so well and i think the dynamic would have been awesome and very entertaining and fulfilling.  of course, river's "ghost" is still around, but it's just not the same.  i've tried to picture clara seeing the dr regenerate into a female and how that would play out.  i just keep coming up with clara going back to her nanny job in london and the dr moving on to find a new companion.  which is ok, but....

wonder if they'll go with the 12 max "doctors" story or somehow write something in to give him more regenerations? ? also, the valyard.

well, i've never been completely pleased with the 11th and i quickly began to hate amy. ? in fact, for a long time, it looked to me more like the 11th was more a "master" figure and rory was more a "doctor" figure, but that's not matt smith's fault. ? that's the writing. ? i am sorry that this means matt smith's doctor won't have as much time to develop his relationship with clara and vice versa. ? i was looking forward to that. ? oh, well, now clara is to the 11th as rose was to the 9th.

crossing my fingers for the future of who.

hmm, maybe they'll do something REALLY rogue and let him regenerate into a non-caucasian.
