WELL, SO MUCH FOR WATCHING ANY MORE DOCTOR WHO SHOWS

The next Doctor will be female.

That’s it for me. No more.

What used to be a fun romp started going P.C.

It is now full-on P.C.

You can expect the Doctor after this will be transgender or a knob-gobbler/carpet muncher.

Doctor Who soon transitions. As the Second Doctor might say, “Oh, my word!”
The Gallifreyan, who transcends the limitations of space and time, also apparently transcends the limitations of sex. Jodie Whittaker, the first female Doctor Who, replaces Peter Capaldi in the iconic role this Christmas. Ms. Whittaker starred as “Jessie” alongside Peter O’Toole and Vanessa Redgrave in Venus and later successfully moved to the small screen as “Beth Latimer” in Broadchurch. She becomes the first female to play the lead role in the series that started on the BBC more than a half-century ago.

The many Whovian quirks include the ability to regenerate. The character, counting its celluloid incarnation of Peter Cushing (of Commander Tarkin fame), enters its fourteenth separate persona, which, according to the rules of the Time Lords, comes as one life too many. Presumably an audience capable of suspending belief regarding biology’s rules against regeneration can also do so regarding Time Lord rules regarding 13 lives per each of their kind—and the part about Doctor Who becoming a woman.

Although regeneration never brought as massive a change as this, the process resulted in viewers essentially watching a different doctor and sometimes, seemingly, a different program.

“It’s not only his face that has changed,” companion Ben explains upon seeing the Second Doctor emerge from the cranky-old-man First Doctor. “He doesn’t even act like him.”

The Second Doctor, played by a serious actor, appeared as a comedic, easily-frazzled avuncular figure. The Third Doctor, played by a comedic actor, came across as a pompous, patronizing, so-serious Time Lord. Tom Baker’s oddball-jokester Fourth Doctor reminded viewers they watched an alien and not an Englishman. The understated Fifth Doctor struck viewers as more human than Galifreyan. The new series, rebooted in 2005, similarly sees different actors playing the same character as a different character.

Since Doctor Who rematerialized on television screens 12 years ago, the program has targeted Daleks and Cybermen and, well, the enemies of social justice. “The Zygon Invasion,” for instance, played as a vehicle to bash restrictions on unfettered immigration. Apart from The Master regenerating as a woman, the program featured a male bisexual character and a female homosexual companion.

The initial 26-year version of the show occasionally delved into political themes. “The Green Death,” airing amid a series of crippling seventies strikes, comes across at times as an advertisement for labor unions and environmentalism. “The Sunmakers” railed against the tax man. “The Two Doctors,” also penned by the show’s Shakespeare, Robert Holmes, propagandized for vegetarianism, albeit in a soft-touched manner. But in its second life, Doctor Who strikes as a preachier program.

Perhaps a more powerful force than political correctness reassigned a new sex to the TARDIS-traveling Time Lord. The show’s ratings declined from David Tennant to Matt Smith, and then from Matt Smith to Peter Capaldi. The Time Lord’s new life, producers hope, breathes new life into the struggling series.

    Today the Liberal emboldened shitheads want to rule it over everyone and they seem to be succeeding. Sorry Dr. Who was, is and always will be a man. Women have wonder woman heroine as a role model. But that character will probably morph into a tranny played in the movies by Caitlyn Jenner.

  2. I haven’t watched the politically correct crap for years. The last time it was wort watching was when Nicola Bryant played Peri. Her voice was annoying but what cleavage! http://www.famousfix.com/topic/nicola-bryant/photos

    I always loved most of the old Doctor Who series from the sixties and seventies until Colin Baker played the Doctor. I still watched it then because as infidel says, Peri’s cleavage. I was more of a Mary Tamm (Romana) fan though. I tried watching the rebooted show with David Tennant as the Doctor, but couldn’t really get into it. I still think that John Pertwee and Tom Baker were the best. I’m glad that I missed the gay and bi companions later on……………….

    Never really got into Dr Who, but I did occasionally watch the old series with Tom Baker; I even took an acting class taught by Sarah Jane Smith (whose real name was Elisabeth Sladen) who was one of the Doctor’s assistants, sometime around 1982.

    You’d think that would get me interested in Dr. Who, but it didn’t. Elisabeth was very nice, easy to work with and very easy on the eyes! Unfortunately for me, the line of guys who also thought so stretched about as far as the Tardis could go, and she also had a husband. Most inconvenient!

    Sadly, she passed away in 2011. R.I.P.

    I too watched the show for a while when Tom Baker was starring, but even though
    the show was designed to be a bit hokey, it went downhill from there.

    I only hope that idiotic PC bullshit results in dismal ratings! If they follow through
    on a black Spiderman, a gay Green Lantern, a lezbo Wonder Woman, a black
    James Bond, etc I want to see this crap BOMB!

    At 9, I would have burned my entire comic book collection if they tried this shit
    back in the mid-60s. And will somebody please call ICE and ask them to deport
    Dora the Explorer! Let us spare kiddies from this multi-culti crap.

    Won’t give it the time of day. I hope it kills the series.
