Is this some sort of keyboard player or band or something?

It's a long running BBC TV series. It used to be quite good, but it's got more & more PC, and this is the last straw. I'm happy to say that I don't watch TV any more.

Reminds me of Ron Burgandys boss telling the meeting in the male dominated newsroom that diversity was needed and then Ron explaining it was 'an old old wooden ship'

Shouldn't it be "Doctress Who"?

Hmmmm. I haven't watched Dr. Who since the late 1980's. I do remember watching a TV movie with the 8th doctor, but that's all.

I had been a big Tom Baker fan and hung in there for a few years after he left, but the show just wasn't the same for me. frown

Not surprising. There's been a, um, social engineering push to the show since introducing Captain Jack, 'way back in the first season of the 21st century reboot, and then in spades with the Torchwood spinoff.

And the past decade or so of the BBC (at least the stuff that finds its way to Netflix) has been cut from the same cloth.

Well, I've been watching since the 60's and I am definitely NOT misogynistic, but this is soemthing that will stop me watching. it's like trying to say Buffalo Bill is Calamity Jane haha!

Not a sexist thing, but the role is a male one imo

Right? Before you know it, we'll have tons of threads that are OT that aren't properly labeled. It will be chaos.

This has been alluded to several regenerations ago...strongest during the last bit of Tennant episodes.

No not at all. Its like saying the role of playing the Queen, is a female role, you can't really say it's a male role. No matter how you spin it we are ALL still male and female. Pure and simple biology!!

PC just goes way WAY too far. And folks need to jump on the bandwagon to try and prove something.

It's all just a bit silly grin

Poor analogy since a Queen by definition must be female and a King male, a doctor can be male or female...but can The Doctor be female well that's another question.

Personally I haven't watched it much since Matt Smith, I think the script writing has been very poor.

A female doctor coupled with new script writers is just the thing to get me watching again, at least for an episode or two.

At the end of the day it's just a TV show.

I have been loving it until very recently - (the current Dr Who is not my favourite.) David Tennant was the definitive Dr in my opinion, but there have been some really good storylines with Matt Smith & Christoper Eccleston.

I shall keep an open mind about the new Dr and wait and see what happens....

Ridiculous! There are plenty of men that are Queens. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

You can prove anything with Google cool ...

The appellation "lord" is primarily applied to men, while for women the appellation "lady" is used.
However, this is no longer universal: the Lord of Mann, a title currently held by the Queen of the United Kingdom, and female Lord Mayors are examples of women who are styled Lord.
