Re: Doctor Who

Thanks for those, Ivy!  I've been keeping away from the media over the issue, after seeing that the Daily Fail were printing nude screenshots of Jodie Whittaker. 

There's no reason why the Doctor should have to be a man.  It has been established that Time Lords do not have to regenerate to the same gender, and also that gender isn't a thing to them in the way that it is to us. 

Not everybody who would have preferred a man, is being misogynist, though I think.  You just get used to seeing somebody a certain way, I think, and it has been many many years of the Doctor only being male, and unless you were born in the 1940s or earlier, throughout our childhoods.    Not a reason to keep them male, of course, but I think there can be a little bit of loss there (it reminds me of the loss when you have a child of one sex, and "lose" the son or daughter who might have been).  I grew up with an older Doctor too, and always want to see an older person in the role, which is maybe one of the reasons I loved Peter so much.  

No excuse for some of the comments out there, of course.  I think we've actually been well prepared for it by Stephen.

Re: Doctor Who

I haven't really watched Doctor Who since David Tennant left, I did watch some of Matt Smith's episodes and liked him as the Doctor but I couldn't get into it with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor but I will definitely tune in to see how Jodie's portrayal turns out.

Re: Doctor Who

I have only seen a few of Peter Capaldi's episodes. I found him too grouchy when he started, but I don't know what his later episodes are like. I will get to them eventually and then I'll see what I think then.

Re: Doctor Who

I will definitely tune in, too. David was my last, too. (well...and the only one)

The regeneration will be interesting and the Doctors reaction to it.

Well he has the Sherlock locks, maybe during the shooting of series 2 (2011) maybe 3 (2013)

EDIT: gettyimages says April 2013, was at a party "to celebrate Michael Attenborough's 11 years as Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre"

Re: Doctor Who

Thank you for the digging!
I'm still not quite over Ten, but I've watched his last ep just this weekend for the first time. I'll be definitely watching the rest of the seasons after a breather (loved River Song - so far!) and I'm very excited because of all the potential of a female Doctor!

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Doctor Who

There are some preview screenings of the Christmas episode showing in selected venues in the North of England.   In fact, not only the Doctor Who episode, but also The League of Gentlemen, so a Mark Gatiss double bill (if you can get tickets for both)!  Apparently the very end of the episode will be missed out, so still some surprise left for Christmas day.

Tickets are free and allocated by a random draw, with 75% going to local postcodes.  This is a local show for local people!  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Doctor Who

Oh, the feels!  The last of Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat, Pearl Mackie (and some other goodbyes from other cast members I won't mention because spoilers), and possibly the last from Mark Gatiss and Murray Gold.   It really felt like a goodbye episode.  And they played the "Breaking the Wall" music from my favourite episode. It feels like the end of an era, and an episode for fans, by fans (Peter, Steven and Mark all being uber-fans!).  I heard in an interview that Mark owns a Third Doctor jacket and it was hanging in the Tardis in Peter's final scene! 

I love that Jodie Whittaker is keeping her accent!  (I wish David Tennant had!).

Re: Doctor Who

Love Mark being all fanboy-ish!
Can't comment on the special since I haven't seen any of Peter's eps (yet!).

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, and I love that the part he played in this episode was kind of a fanboy part (you'll see what I mean when you finally get there!).  I'll be interested to know what you think when you get to Peter's era.  He sometimes seems to embody aspects of previous doctors, but particularly those from the first run (such as the Jon Pertwee hair in the picture above!).

Re: Doctor Who

I'll report back when I've seen some of his eps! But don't hold your breath :D
It took me about half a year to get over David's regeneration and I've seen Matt's just a few days ago, so you can do the math http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/embarrassed.png

Re: Doctor Who

I started watching series 8 when it started but soon fell behind. It didn't help that I stopped getting the channel Doctor Who airs on here in Canada, so I have to wait for it to appear on one of my on-demand services. I remember at the time finding him too grumpy, but I don't know if that's a fair reflection of how he was over time.

As for the photo though, I love it! They both look really happy.

Re: Doctor Who

He is rather grumpy at the beginning!  I know a lot of people didn't take to him right away because of that (although I kind of liked it!).  But I'd say it's not really representative of how he is over time.  He does develop quite a bit, I think.   And Peter is such a fantastic actor.  I don't suppose they'll ever cast anyone older than him now, so there's unlikely to ever be such a big fan playing the role!   Jodie is too young to have been a fan of the original episodes as a child (whereas David Bradley is too old!).  I believe Chris Chibnall is a fan though, so it's still going to be fan-written - it will be interesting to see where he takes it.
