    Gonna start watching again, hope they don't make it too confusing with some episodes plot (give us gods in the show)

    River Song, I assume ? Yeah she was a little crazy :v I think Captain Jack Harkness was a Moffat creation as well, he wasn't to bad, infact i think he was one of the best characters, especially since he got his own R rated spin off series Torchwood By Russel T Davies.

    The only Moffat characters who were normal would probably be Clara and Rory, since even Amy Pond was a little crazy.

    I was trying to avoid finding out before seeing the Christmas Special, but that became an uphill battle REAL fast.

    It's always exciting to get a new Doctor. I just hope they don't spend so much time trying to establish her character like they did with Capaldi. His incarnation felt like he was in a perpetual identity crisis for about 2 Series.

    @KaenKazui While Series 6 and 8 were shakey, and 7 and 9 were pretty dire, I would absolutely recommend watching Series 10. Aside from a slightly underwhelming mid-series trilogy, it honestly felt like a breath of fresh air for the show. Bill's great, 12's found his footing, NO BLOODY CLARA and the writing really benefited from the hiatus. Moffat had his ups and downs, but he went out on a reasonably high note.

    Haven't watched the series in a while, mostly due to Moffat's writing starting to feel rather Shyamalan-y to me. But with a new writer and a female doctor - something I have been hoping for in quite a while - I am all for it.
    Yeah i am pretty excited myself, especially to see a "non-comedic" female doctor (like the one from the comic relief spoofs)

    Season 10, was definitely Capaldi's best series !

    The only thing I know is Moffat sucks and I had to work that day so I couldn't see nerds whine. I hear a lot of girls that I know are super happy. So that's good.

    I agree with Vande. I also had no desire for a female doctor, despite being female myself. It always felt like it was being PC for the sake of it, as far as I'm concerned. I haven't been watching for quite a while as it is (the writing's been poor), but I have no interest in tuning in for this. I do wish her luck though.

    Maybe ironically, I liked River Song for the most part. Her craziness made sense with her character's history. But it seemed almost like Moffat wrote as if psychopath were a new orientation (like, as in attraction to psychopathic characters, though part of that includes his Sherlock characters as well). A lot of his characters also began to feel rather flat. Where I liked River (apart from her recent cameo), I quite disliked Missy.

    For whatever it's worth, Time Lords may not even have the same actual gender or sex as humans as they (generally) don't even reproduce - they're artificially grown in looms (so not all that different to Jenny). Per the novel, Lungbarrow, they're also sterile. Maybe Time Lords are sort of like Ditto and make a mostly-correct copy during regeneration. Come to think of it, I don't think there's been anything saying that Time Lords aren't reproductive hermaphrodites (like flatworms) or that such equipment hasn't passed vestigiality into non-existence… or that it's even homologous to humans.

    As with all the other doctors and writers it'll take a while to get used to but I'm personally excited to see where it goes! I'll miss Capaldi but Moffat's writing was eh.
    As for people concerned about the doctor being female was to please the politically correct crowd, well if you believe timelords can only be 2 genders (thats not even true for humans) then each time the doctor regenerated he had a 50/50 chance of being female, so it's quite late for him to be a her and it's about time :P it is a bit soon after missy but I suppose that was just testing the water

    Worst decision later, Watch how this concept flops due to ratings halving and them having to switch back to a male doctor.
    I loved doctor who, I started in '06 but have gone through the classic era and loved them all. This new ploy is just about being PC.
    Im not gender biased or homphobic in any way, but Bill was the WORST companion to date. Every week she had to mention how she was a "gay black adopted lesbian" in some way or another. I mean, yeah we get it....She just doesnt shut up about it.
    Also the plots for Capaldi's season have been utter crap. He is a brilliant actor, but he was stuck with the worst writing ever.
    Jack was not like this...

    Missy was also complete rubbish too, decades of rivalry turned into love? wtf....
    My favourite episode was when John Simm slaps the sense into missy and turns Bill into a cyberman...its a shame she still kept her consciousness.
    Perhaps instead of turning males into females, why not bring back more female timelords (Rani perhaps???) ?

    It's been stated repeatedly by RTD and Moffat that the looms and stuff aren't canon to the TV series. Of course, a later writer could make them canon, but its unlikely.
    This is just a note to say that I'm on the Autism Spectrum (Annoyingly, I was never told whether it was 'just' high-functioning autism, or Asperger's syndrome), so if I don't make sense, or am incoherent, please ask what it is I mean politely. Thank you~
