Nah. Meant to watch it, then everyone said the second series was rubbish so it went lower down the priority list.

Is it safe to look this up on the internet, or are there a lot of upset folk?

There's a lot of Broflake* commenters on Mail Online and the like but I haven't seen many objectionable tweets being retweeted into my timeline for mocking purposes so I'm actually thinking it's not as big a deal as I feared.

Obviously my timeline is an echo chamber but it also features much hilarity at the expense of the likes of Prison Planet and Fox news and other cry babies about progress so I do get to see that stuff.

* Saw that yesterday from Brianna Wu and loved it.

APoD tweeted earlier that he wad surprised he hadn't seen anyone complaint that it was "Dr Who, not Dr Womb" yesterday. I wondered if anyone had, so I searched twitter.

Don't ever search Twitter for "Womb". Really, really don't.

Ok.

God, imagine if they switched other Sci-Fi leads to female like Starbuck or the Captain of the USS Enterprise!

You know what, I'd completely forgotten about Captain Janeway. Not that I didn't enjoy the programme, I did, but I'd forgotten about it because it didn't matter in the slightest whether it was a man or woman in charge.

Janeway wasn't Captain of the Enterprise.

You're right, but you get what I mean.

Blame Zardoz. He started it... The woman hating pig!

Point taken.

I'm really pleased with the decision to cast a female Doctor. Unreal how it has upset so many over on the Twitter.

I'll still not watch it just as much.

I have also taken your point.

On a serious note, as the father of two girls I'm really pleased to see a female Doctor. As a fan, it changes nothing. As long as the programme is entertaining then I shall continue to watch it.

Does it actually change nothing? I've not watched it since Ace was in it, so I have no idea.

I suppose it does change in that each new Doctor has a different personality so I guess I'm wrong there. What I probably meant say was that it doesn't negatively effect the programme.

I agree, just another doctor. I want to watch the war doctor episode again.

I'm amazed at how many people - even people I know and thought reasonably sane - have blown their top and gone all DOCTOR WHO IS DEAD TO ME NOW!!!1!

I expect she'll be reasonably good in the role and that it'll be business as usual after a few episodes.

Events like these are often useful to encourage secret fuckwits among your friends group to out themselves.

Indeed, a friend of mine told me about someone we used to work with loves Ghostbusters. Apparently he went on a Twitter rant that lasted months and months about the new female lead film.
