HERE WE GO - Doctor Who has regenerated and he's become a she. Yep, without a scalpel or hormone in sight the Gallifreyan penis has vanished and left behind a crack in time.
The BBC made the official announcement last weekend during the Wimbledon final - this Christmas current Doctor Peter Cabaldi will regenerate and become Broadchurch star, Jodie Whittaker.
'How am I going to masturbate to the Daleks now when there's a fucking woman in the way,' One angry fan Tweeted.
'The show is now dead to me.' Complained another.
'The show's pink agenda is now complete,' Tweeted yet another.

At the moment the show is not at its strongest point in any case, and it has already lost many of its classic era fans, as well as many who only found the show when RTD brought it back to the screen. Personally I'm not against the idea of a female playing the lead, but I am dubious...it seems like too much of a gimmick, it seems desperate and I think it is too drastic a change and will fall flat on its feminine face. The casting of a female doctor was inevitable in the long run, but maybe now is not the time and the odds are that the show will turn into a kind of Buffy in space. Though honestly that's just my opinion and it's not sexist, nor is it misogynistic
The thing about the Doctor is that he's kind of Sherlock Holmes in space, he's a cold fish and would a woman work as such an emotionless character? I guess only time will tell, and whilst I am no longer a part of the show's core audience I have grown up with the show, and for me Jon Pertwee will always be the Doctor, but I would like the show to continue and captivate children in the same way it once captivated my generation. And you know what, maybe a doctor with boobs could work.
