elsewhence: (r2-d2 fail)

so i guess my former opinion has been refined into, proposing a version of the doctor who's always been female is cool and would probably have made a fun story (though i still cosplayed a female doctor for the sole reason "hips too large", not as some sort of ~*statement*~), deciding to introduce a female incarnation after over 50 years is shitty pandering that needs to fail as quickly as possible.

also, the sort of new viewers that will attracted by a decision like this and weren't attracted by anything else are not the sort of new viewers you want.
