I can imagine. *s* I wrote a story for a crossover community once that included Buffy/Sentinel/X-men/SGA/Highlander (and a few others *L*). It was a hoot.

Fortunately it was only a promo story that was used to try to pull people into the comm so it didn't have to be in-depth.

And oops... we've really strayed from the topic here...so...er... Yeah, the Doctor could be a woman... but I doubt it will ever happen. <-- OOTC

Yes, it's specifically physically canonically possible. But it won't happen, canonically, nor should it.

Still fun to chat about, though!

(If that story's still up somewhere, I'd love a link in PM!)

Like Chasnicollette suggested, I could definitely see Jamie Murray as a female version of the Doctor. When she played H.G. Wells on Warehouse 13, she definitely displayed the stuff that makes a Doctor a Doctor, IMHO.

You know that's right.



(And I guess it's "Jaime?" Like The Bionic Woman. ...as played by Lindsay Wagner who guest-starred on "Warehouse 13" OHMYGODIT'SALLCONNECTED.)

I dunno if they'd ever let the Doctor be anything other than British. Two Scots have played him, and neither was allowed to speak with their natural accent---they had to go Brit for the part. Though I personally feel that as long as they're from Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, even Australia---as long as they have an accent (which to me is one of the most noticeable traits of the character, the voice), they should be able to do it.

The companion, though---for that matter, even the Master---could be any ethnicity, IMHO. I mean, John Barrowman, though himself Scottish by birth, clearly speaks with an American voice (unaccented to us, accented to just about everyone else) due to his being raised in the US from the age of 8. I think he made a fantastic change and brought a bit of diversity to the show though he wasn't on it long (but he was on long enough to inspire them to create a spinoff!).

As for a woman... I think if they ever decided to try it canonically, they could do it like they did in the comedy spoof "Curse of Fatal Death" and have him change gender when his thirteenth (and supposedly last) life is over. Difference between canon and the spoof, I think, should have the female Doctor starting out as an older, mature person (perhaps Dame Helen?) and get younger with each new regeneration, until she's regenerated 12 times and becomes a man again.

There could be a spin-off and the character is a woman. The fact is the doctor has been a male since the 1960’s. Still, the doctor is getting younger with each new doctor. Not sure with the BBC, they understand what a spin-off is, as it is very American, not to say per se the BBC never has done it before.

Actually, the BBC have done four Doctor Who spinoffs:

1. K-9 and Company (pilot only)
2. Torchwood
3. The Sarah Jane Adventures
4. K9

Exactly right, ASJ.

This is not even, of course, including the various non-to-semi-canonical audio media over the years from BBC themselves and Big Finish Productions.

I've never gotten into them myself, but I know of Whovians who froth over the ongoing Eighth Doctor Adventures. And I'm told they have Lady Doctor storylines in there, as well.

I'm told Iris Wildthyme is quite the adventuress herself. If her chronicles ever made the leap to live action, that would be pretty much as good as having a Lady Doctor, IMHO.

At least they gave Tennant a bit of fun in "Tooth and Claw," getting to bust out his native tones a couple episodes in, even if he did switch back to the Estuary partway through.

(Speaking of which, John Barrowman's Scots accent is adorable as Hell.)

Captain Jack's arc has been amazing, developing from straight-up con man to reluctant hero to antiheroic Defender of The Earth...

...and he ain't hard on the eyes, either.

Speaking, as we did, of "Sarah Jane Adventures..."

XD



Lest we get off-topic here talking about the number of his regenerations, I'm especially pointing out the line here where he says, "No, I can be anything."

(But the "507" bit is still pretty hilarious.)

4 years, 9 months to resurrect a thread.

Is that a record?

The Master HAS / IS a woman .. I think Season 8 is where it occurred... One of the ones with the Cybermen I am pretty sure.
