Subj: Screen rant's list of rumored new Doctors

tossing in spoiler tag as precaution. I take this list with a grain of salt.

Also there is a subsequent article on Screen Rant where Lydia West states she is not in running for the part.


My own opinion is simply this: changing the Doctor to female was inevitable, but also an error. Fans were alienated and left before giving the new seasons a chance. Those that stayed and gave it chance were besieged by bad stories. This compounded the error.

It is time to get the Doctor back to basics, and part of that means reverting back to male gender. Sorry ladies, nothing personal but somethings were not meant to be changed. I'm all for equality, but changing the gender of the Doctor was an error.

Imagine for a moment if in Star Wars they decided to change Darth Vader to female? I see Disney/Lucasfilm overrun by torches, pitchforks and lightsabers.

So, male Doctor, one or two companions at the most. A companion that can challenge and stimulate the Doctor's intellect and imagination would be nice, I remember K-9 at times did that with Doc 4. Perhaps a new robot companion for the Doctor? Doesn't have to be K-9, although the return of K-9 is something I wouldn't mind. Modern FX tech can handle the character.

The TARDIS: keep it as the police box. Change its interior again to something on par with the old days, and also.....make it so that the Doctor again has trouble controlling it. In the old days it was a combination of a damaged nav. system and the Doctor needing to learn how to fly it. Let's damage the nav. system again and restore some randomness to the travels.
