    The whole point of a regeneration is for the character to change. Even if they hired a male actor, the character should completely change.

    Didn't know that part of the series. Thanks for informing me! As an onlooker that's how it looks though!:hilarious:

    Ghostbusters had so much potential and they just blew it. The Cast was better than most people gave credit, but the screenwriters are who had a date with disaster. They also erased the franchise's history which would be like Star Wars TFA erasing the original trilogy:cry:. :p

    Lol I had no idea. Maybe I was too quick to judge:p It does seem to be a dumb trend though.

    I loved Nine.

    Loved loved loved loved him. I haven't watched the show in awhile, but I so enjoyed how much hope he had despite all of his despair.

    War (.... so, 8.5... this was a weird thing, I still don't really remember why it existed other than to feed Moffat's ego): [​IMG]

    Ten: [​IMG] :inlove:

    Thirteen: [​IMG] (her show outfit is still TBA)

    So, the Doctor can look like anyone, really. When they're dying, the regenerate and become someone new. While they retain their memories, they gain new quirks, personality traits, and fashion styles.

    Oh, then it can be a different gender then. Why the hate from fans? I'm just an onlooker.:p

    Of the friends I know that are fans of the show they just aren't big fans of the actress, or others just don't like change from what they are used to. I'm honestly indifferent on it and am looking forward to where a female Doctor takes the series.

    I just don't like character swaps (in either direction) and I will continue to sulk about this (not that anyone shall care).

    I would have rather "the Doctor" got trapped in a vortex for a season or 2 and some other Time Lady took over for a bit. I'd have no problem with that. I just can't stand swaps for the sake of swapping.

    You can all proceed to flame me now if you wish. :)

    No problem, just use the "reply" button on the post you are addressing in the future instead of just making a new post. Keeps everything organized.

    I was ok with the actress, I just dont think the Master should gender swap. There are a few Time Ladies from the show's past they could have brought in to antagonize the Doctor, if they wanted one they could have done that easily.

    Also, the Doctor and the Master should never kiss. Ever.

    But that's me.

    No, that's creating a strawman.

    What I am talking about is a very real phenomenon where any time a white male character MIGHT not be a white male character, some fans lose their minds, like when Donald Glover wanted to play Spider-Man. "If we let a black actor play Peter Parker, then why not get a white actor to play Martin Luther King Junior or Malcolm X?!?" Yes, that was an actual comment I saw at the time.

    Lots of people say stupid things, doesn't mean much as it all evens out. Lots of people get upset when characters are white washed too. It's pretty undeniable which way Who and the BBC in general have been leaning. People are upset for a reason, it's better to understand why they're upset than to just say they're wrong.

    I do understand why they're upset. And that's PRECISELY why I'm saying they're wrong.

    I find that doubtful with all the exaggerations.

    No one's "right", it's all opinions about a character that means different things to different people. The ratings will ultimately decide if it's a poor decision or not.

    When you're opinion is "The Doctor can change his physical form all the time, but it must ALWAYS be a white man", I feel pretty confident in saying it's not right.
