Again, too long in the tooth to accept a female Doctor, too long in the tooth to stop watching now. I'll always watch Doctor Who. Done it since 1965, am a fan, and will always be too inquisitive to see what's happening.
I'm totally opposed to the female Doctor simply because I see it as a male character. It was written and created as such. He was a grandFATHER. Added to that it's been that way for 50+ years so it becomes tokenism in my mind. Have not a jot against a female lead in anything else, be it brand new or a spin-off, or even for a while in the actual show (yep the old zzz inducing Romana taking over thing). I mean, Clara virtually did that already (which of course was wrong in her case).
So while I'll be taking in a nice shiny new season, the basic problem will always be in the way. 50 odd years of canon swept away for people who are either not bothered enough to watch it, or for those who don't care either way. The rest of us who are don't matter. And it's unrepairable unless a future person in charge does the old Dallas waking up in the shower trick! Just a terrible dream! If only. I wonder what attracted these people to Doctor Who that they want to 'improve' it so much. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that all we ever needed was the Classic Series with today's sfx and production values.
Then there's the new showrunner, who's moral compass seems to be all over the place with his track record so far, considering he wants the kids on board. Most of his ideas come from someone or somewhere else. In his episodes and ideas for Who generally INCLUDING female Doctor. Tom and JNT's joke with the press? Newman's proposal to Grade? The press, banging on about it ever since that joke?
And now we have Bradley Walsh's character. The only thing I'm looking forward to. I read he's someone's dad, and will carry much of the humour. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship anyone? Not even Daleks for Christmas can make any of this better. The latest news in fact suggests that's gone too now with talk of New Years Day instead.
My take is has already been said. Like watching a new show altogether, at best a remake. Doctor Who in name only.
