    As @winston says, there isn’t a transgender agenda. Female actors have been taking male roles for centuries (and male actors have been taking female roles for millennia). Women have played Prospero, Hamlet and King Lear – and I promise you that I can find you examples of women playing some of those roles before the word ‘transgender’ was…[Read more]

  • “Next Doctor Craig Charles or Emma Watson. Should have been the Doctor John Cleese.”

    Sorry but these are perhaps the worst suggestions for the Doctor that i have ever heard

  • Next Doctor Craig Charles or Emma Watson. Should have been the Doctor John Cleese. First female Doctor should have been Judi Dench.

    We all have our likes. No one is right or wrong. If we all had the same likes the whole world would drink Tabs. Every Doctor has been different. That what helped to keep the show going so long. Look how long the original, 26 years don’t forget the 18 months lay off, and the reboot, 15 years no 2019. How many shows last as long? Fans c…[Read more]

  • @shepherd    There are many great shows featuring transgender characters and many wonderful transgender actors including Bethany Black who appeared in the Doctor Who episode “Sleep no More” but the Doctor is not one of them. The Doctor is an alien from Gallifrey, a Time Lord who can “cheat death” by regenerating. Every cell in her body dies and is…[Read more]

    I had no problem with a female Doctor. It is the way they went about it I did not like. We older fans know the Doctor and the Master were not the only renegade/political rebel Time Lords. Hedin, Ophiuchus, Ruath, the War Lord, Borusa, Morbius, the Monk, the Rani, Dax and Salyavin to name a few.

    Rather than pushing the Transgender agenda…[Read more]

    So who do we get to replace Chibnall for the next season? This is tough. truly tough.

    Especially tough because he’s already confirmed for the next series. Or season. So is Jodie Whittaker. Sorry about that.

    If your internal conception of the Doctor is an authority figure, then the Whittaker Doctor isn’t going to be your cup of tea -…[Read more]

  • @antpage

    I agree with you and have expressed a lot of the same thing on other fan sites. The barriers you face come from several groups, some well-meaning and some not.

    One group is from my generation who saw Doctor Who get canceled. A new hope with the 1996 movie that hurt in so many ways and then 15 years before the reboot. You must support…[Read more]

  • I love this show since i used to watch Tom Baker in the role when i was a kid in the 70’s. Ive seen all his episodes as well as all the Peter Davison, Colin Baker most of the Sylvester McCoy and all of the episodes since the reboot with Christopher Eccleston. I plan to finish the Sylvester McCoy episodes and then see all the episodes of the ot…[Read more]

  • @bluesqueakpip   I really enjoyed Picard and I really like Discovery also. I do like the episodic style of Discovery especially for rewatching later when I can watch favourite stand alone episodes. The new style of Picard on the other hand makes me want to watch it all to solve the mysteries and finish the arc but I am not going to watch any e…[Read more]

    Good to know.

    I suspect the reason I’m liking Discovery better than Picard (apart from one being straight-up action adventure and the other aspiring to drama) is that Discovery stuck to the episodic style and Picard seems to be designed for a binge-watch. Since I don’t binge-watch, the current downward curve seems blinkin’ endless.

  • @bluesqueakpip

    Hang in there. Some old faces are going to start to appear, and the new, dark universe of Picard is going to connect with the optimism of The Next Generation.

    I suspect the videos have been carefully selected – at least, in my part of London people are generally being very careful and keeping apart. However I could, if I wanted to, find a large group to film, (teenage boys, usually) all suffering from ‘it can’t happen to me’ syndrome. The Thames Path last weekend was also extremely…[Read more]

  • Hi, just popping my head up above the hibernation parapet.

    So – I notice a lot of people on here liked Picard, but I’m currently on Episode 5 and feel as if the writers have mislaid their Prozac. Does it get any more cheerful? Any slight hint of optimism? At the moment I’m half expecting Picard to return home to discover the chateau has been…[Read more]

  • @nerys I think part of the problem is that some people think ‘It will never happen to me’. They act as though they are special, and as they are special they are immune in some way, when the sad reality is that nobody is immune from this thing.

    Where I am in Scarborough, people seem to have been sensible. My Mum said she saw some suspiciously…[Read more]
