Been travelling, so have not read the million posts that have come in, and Therefore I am absolutely sure that what I am about to say has been well discussed already.
But, since Sydney Newman argued back in 1986 that the Doctor should be a woman in the future:
it is awfully hard (ie, impossible) to take seriously the moaners (ie, sexist pillocks) who think that this change is all about political correctness and is not “true” to the original show (that was created by the same man who said that the Doctor should be changed into a woman).
OK, that’s it! I am not engaging in this “defence” that needs no defence any more!21 July 2017 at 03:25 #6121821 July 2017 at 14:05 #6124321 July 2017 at 14:16 #61244Nick @nick
That’s terrible news. Victoria was before my time, but I enjoyed the character and character development from the Target novels and few Troughton DVDs.

That’s sad news. And going too young too.21 July 2017 at 18:32 #6125421 July 2017 at 18:46 #6125521 July 2017 at 20:00 #6125922 July 2017 at 00:08 #61272
I also heard whispers (unconfirmed) that DW Comicon footage will spread past San Diego on Sunday. "We can only hope"

The video in the link above has a small spoiler about Xmas (because it was live when I linked it). I’d advise discussion about this small revelation to be conducted over on the Spoilers thread, otherwise we might have to shift the link to over there & that would be a shame…

Thanks everybody, for (pre?) ComiCon clips — I was away for the weekend and out of touch. Can’t say I’m surprised that PC says he plans to just “vanish” for a while. I think he’s got a lot to think about from this experience of getting his dearest wish from childhood, and having to deal with the many realities of actually doing it — it’s never entirely what you expect, is it? And there will likely be some brooding time too (Scottish, you know). It can’t easy or quick to come down from a high like that, and let go of the inevitable lows as well.
Sheesh, gonna miss this crew no matter what comes after . . .23 July 2017 at 16:05 #61313

Michelle Gomez is ace. It’ll be such a shame if this is the end of her involvement in the show because she’s been just fab on and off screen….23 July 2017 at 22:39 #61337

Fantastic. It seems Mark has had a lot of bonkers ideas. Chibnall should hire him as, at least, an “ideas contributor” to his writing room (if it exists).28 July 2017 at 12:36 #61503Missy @missy

Earl’s Doctor Who connection is that he appeared in William Hartnell’s regeneration story: The Tenth Planet.
Not only was he a black actor playing an astronaut (in 1966), he was Zeus IV’s captain. Eat your heart out, Star Trek. 😀15 August 2017 at 14:09 #61724Mudlark @mudlark
Not exactly Doctor Who, but David Tennant is to star in Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s ‘Good Omens’16 August 2017 at 02:16 #61726winston @winston
@mudlark As both a Pratchett and Tennant fan ,I couldn’t be more excited. Going to Google it right now. Thanks.16 August 2017 at 09:21 #61727Mudlark @mudlark
Erratum: Having just re-read my post above, I see that in my haste to hit ‘submit’ I failed to spot the inadvertent and misleading omission of a couple of words. It should have read … adaption of his and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens, since they were, of course, co-authors of the said work 😳
