13th Doctor Who by mayan-art 13th Doctor Who by mayan-art
So, I did this painting! I am not sure how I feel about DW being a woman. I'm not a huge DW fan, so it doesn't matter all that much to me, but I do feel like they should be giving women new lead roles... not just shoehorning them into existing roles established by men, for the sake of equality.

I totally agree, but the idea has grown on me.  I think Jodie is going to be an awesome Doctor; let's just hope the writing is good because if the writing is sub-par, then it won't matter that The Doctor is a woman now because it won't work if the writing sucks.

It's grown on me too, mainly because I think Doctor Who is super cheesy and they can't really make it any worse, hehe! I'd be annoyed if it was a character I really liked! It does highlight the problem in the media at the moment; there has been talk of making James Bond female, but you can't just gender bend a character. Like it or not, part of your personality is defined by your gender. It feels like a cheap cop-out to just swap a character's gender and expect it to work. In the case of Doctor Who his/her personality shifts with each regeneration, so you can get away with it... but still... more roles for women please! Can you imagine the backlash if they took a female lead and made it male...

totally agree!   a very delicate line and a very double-edged sword.   still, a beautiful pic.
