She is transgender. She changed from a male to a female.


Nope. She is a complete female.

:this:


Not really. The "doctoriness" of the doctor is independent of gender. That this has only just been directly observed by the earth audience is incidental. :smoke: :coffee: :smug:


Her gender is also independent of her "doctoriness". She used to be the Doctor who happened to be male, she's now the Doctor who happens to be female. :smoke:

Well, that would be true if one unnecessarily limited oneself to the myopic definition of trangender as someone who has undergone gender reassignment surgery and then ignorantly classed them as 'not a complete female'. Fortunately, as we have examples of transgender processes in the natural world we don't have to do that.

I thought, as I was watching, that with episode 3 the new series was beginning to hit its stride, but probably needed a few more stories. Then the scene with the arrest happened.
Nailed it completely.

As I mentioned in the other thread I found the episode rather cringy and on-the-nose.
Especially the music cues and the conversation between Yaz and Ryan.

so any bets in which episode they‘ll notice the trouble caused by sending Krasko back in time?

eh, IMO the only cringy bit was the history class at the end.

one thing I noticed „not there“ and which I really don’t miss is „comic relief“.
4 dead people v.s. one 1 „Tim Shaw“ in episode 1?
This Doctor isn’t funny.

I found that cringy as well, but also the trumpeting fanfare whenever Rosa entered a scene, the incredibly overused and the immersion breaking pop song at the end.

Really struggling with this latest episode. I'm sure it's good but... spiders. Why does it have to be spiders? :whine:

The spider in the bath bit was quite funny, though.

Liked this episode well enough, less so than the first 2 though.

Time 'is' relative. :ask:
Anyhoo, the Doctor could visit itself in another gender, and be all things at the same time. Maybe :dunno:

Haven't seen this week's episode yet, but I'm struggling with this series due to the quality of the scriptwriting. Honestly, it's dire. The Rosa Parks episode may have been the worst script for any episode of any show I've seen in some time. (I don't watch much TV, so I'm sure there's worse out there.) My teenage kids were just about at the point of throwing things at the television as the characters droned on with stating-the-bleeding-obvious exposition on the bus at the top of their voices, while everyone else in the scene acted as if the Doctor&Co weren't even there. It was like watching a poor imitation of The Sixth Sense. There were lots of shouts of "They can all hear you!" and facepalming.

I'm also not at all convinced by the TARDIS makeover, and still wondering about the wisdom of introducing four possible companions in Episode 1, killing the best, and taking all of the other three that you didn't want to become the companion.

I'd love this season to work, but for now, for me, it's not. Badly.
