    Damn, those tweets now make me wish for Tilda Swinton.

    Hell she could play both male and female Doctors. Or male Master and female Doctor.

    I did not recognize the name, but she was in Attack the Block, so I'm sold.

    Looks like Rory is a little surprised, but accepting:

    I wonder if any have tried rationalizing it... "I guess it's okay if she's a lesbian, that's hot. But then, I'd be getting a boner over the Doctor, and he's an old dude. NoooOOooOOO, my heterosexuality!"

    Actually it struck me today that they have laid the foundation for this quite well; the General, the Master and now the Doctor.

    Which will lose viewers? Doesn't add up, unless you're implying that the morons raging about this will still watch the show anyway.

    Right, but you didn't say gaining, you said not losing, so it was unclear.

    I remember her in both Attack the Block and Broadchurch. I'm looking forward to seeing what she does as The Doctor.

    As for the guys raging over the Doctor being a she, man, fuck those guys.

    When the whitest of white girls (daddy is chief of the uni police) reblogs a multi-paragraph rant complaining that it's not a WOC, which is like a worse sin than just another white guy, that's an instant unfollow. I mean what the hell?

    I'm a bit disappointed she's not ginger. I think it would have been funny if the first thing she said post-regeneration is "Yay! I'm finally ginger!" with no mention of being female. (With the extra layer of meaning that regenerating as the opposite sex is no big deal for Time Lords.)

    Did River ever meet Capaldi? I stopped watching when he took over, I was just a bit burnt out, but I thought the River storyline was over.

    Not saying they couldn't wibbly wobbly a way for hey back into the timeline.

    The Husbands of River Song was arguably one of the best Capaldi episodes. And honestly should've been Moffat's last episode because it would've been a great coda for his run.

    Plus, it gave us this great moment:

    I was just thinking, it would be great if they could get John Boyega to be 13th Doctor's companion for one episode. Maybe even sneak in a brief appearance bt Nick Frost. "There's something familiar about all this...".

    The way I wrote in my head is still close to that, right after regenerating she should look at herself and say something like "Wow, now this is weird...I haven't been blonde in ages!" (which is true, the last blonde Doctor was 6). No mention whatsoever of the gender change itself.
