Ok..just gonna say right off the bat...I am not a fan of Dr. Who...that being said...why is everyone freaking out about a female Doctor? I don't get it! The gender of the doctor is completely irrelevant! It's about as dumb as when people freaked out about there not being enough white American actors in Rogue One...or the new Star Trek series....priorities people...priorities...

I stopped watching after series 9 so I couldn't care less if the Doctor is a woman. it was going to happen eventually.
I agree with Friend #2 in that I have not watched the show much since Matt Smith only because I missed it on Netflix and now I don't have BBC. The show has been controversal before and will more than likely survive this.
I think a female Master was the test to see how things would go. I still say, doesn't apply, the Master is just an odd duck, and that up till the last few years Timelords and Timeladies remained the same gender as they regenerated. And then in the episode "Heaven Sent" they showed a onscreen regeneration of a Gallifreyian changing from man to woman. So there you go. Oh well.
So in summary, happy for the fans that will be inspired by this incarnation of the Doctor. I think maybe (and this was not on the Bingo card) perhaps I just see Doctor Who as silly and might have outgrown the show. I think there comes a point where a show like Doctor Who can only inspire so far until you hopefully become the "Doctor" you hoped to be. I don't have a time machine, but I enjoy my own heroics and adventures. Got the Doctor to thank for that.
With that, I'm going to go pop in some Tom Baker, Christopher Eccleston, and Jon Pertwee episodes and raise a toast in passing to the new Who. Fly on bro... er... sist.. whatever you are!
