WOW! So much Doctor Who jamed into one comic. I had to download this and zoom into every little thing to get a real sense of what was there. I normally do that sort of thing when I'm coloring so I can get every detail in the artwork. I'd in fact would love to color this, but I'm afraid I am a bit embarrassed to admit I am not familiar with a couple of things towards the last panel. Here I thought I was a decent Doctor Who fan but I haven't a clue how to color some of the figurines and the top in the second to last panel with the star? I swear that reminds me of something but I don't know what. Hmmmm...I just realized something you could have done. In the Tenth panel when she lifts her shirt to look at herself she could have said,"I have etheric beam detectors!"
Zoe you were Brilliant! You said GERONIMO! then dived into creating such a FANTASTIC work of art. I tip my fez cap, twiddle my sonic and say to you Allons-y!
Is there a doctor in the house?????
Which to be fair is iirc much more painful than just burning xD
Personally though, my favourite Doctor was Jon Pertwee, so take that for what you will.
I still have to catch up on Dr. Who!
To change a character in such a big way (and I'm not talking alone about men -> woman, she's also young and pretty) that seemed to have been male for thousands of years and that all of sudden. I think, if they would have made her a female, older prof type for example and not a "young blondie", it would have been way easier for fans to accept.
That said: it will depend a lot of what the authors make out of it. If the docotor is suddenly all about "oh, I'm a woman now, bla bla", while as far as I know never was a lot about "I'm a man!", this will just ruin the character.
And these are not all problems.
And a female time lord is not exactly anything new (there was one before and more competent and powerful than the doctor) nor a change of sex (Master).
I honestly have a feeling that these big media companies are just using Feminism as a marketing scheme to sell off badly made shows.
Let me say I have always been a fan of and of Doctor Who. I loved the idea of a female Doctor for some time and the fact that it is really going to take place is going to be interesting. I'd like the transition to be great storytelling but it can easily go the other way and ruin the series for any future female Doctors.
I have read your back and forth sparring with Neither of you say anything about the artwork that has been done. This is surprising since you apparently commissioned the artwork. You would rather fight with someone than say what you thought of the comic you commissioned?
Look, both of you have your opinions. I certainly do not wish to step in and take sides. It saddens me that fighting is preferable than coming together and say "good job Zoe!"
*Getting of my soap box shaped like a blue police box*
I hope I did not offended anyone.
And The new Ghostbusters would still be a badly written nostalgic reboot cash-in in a sea of badly written nostalgic reboot cash-ins even if the cast was all male.
Though this 'Female Doctor Who" is an obvious PC media stunt, at least it is not in your face about it.
And that could easily change with a little understanding of statistics and... listening? Crazy thought there.
This change will affect how the doctor addresses problems and how people around the doctor act and react. Gender does matter. Don't get me wrong. As a long time fan I'm rooting for her to do a good job. But things will be different.
