Lol. I think that makes you a PROPER fan XD
@JamesStroudNowt wrong with loving Castrovalva and Mark of the Rani :)
@ScribeyQuite fond of 'The Kings Demons' myself for all the reasons you said.
Plus, it's a two-parter (classic-who style, app 25 x2 mins).
A nice, compact interesting little story with a good cliff-hanger half way through :)
Brilliant article Will. Love your humorous take on it all.
'Word of warning: don’t watch (The Ultimate Foe) if you’ve never seen the rest of The Trial of a Time Lord.
It’s confusing enough to those of us who have seen it.'
Hilarious, and so, so true XD
Looking forward to part two :)
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! Yes you can! You have every right to cite what you like.
Equally, i have every right to question it's validity.
You say 'Doctor Who has no canon'. I say it does, and for me that is the tv stories only, which came first and are the primary point of reference. The expanded whoniverse may be 'officially licenced', brilliant, inventive, wonderful, superb and often better than the tv show for some people, but it can also often be contradictory, as i'm sure you are aware.
So for me, there has to be a bottom-line in terms of canon, and that is the tv series.

@twoheartsonemind wants a Black Widow Movie @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! Fair enough, i'm sorry that I offended you. :/
I agree, there are some great stories there, and you have every right to consider them canon, just as I have every right not to.
For me, for the record, I view tv stories as strict canon and other stuff as a cool what if?, possibly, maybe? sort of 'sideline'.

@Notsosmartguy Approves of female Master @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis No probs there Notsosmartguy.
As long as the Doctor continues to be a bloke, he can wear whichever face and colour he gets with pride.
Unless he becomes Piers Morgan of course, in which case i would hope he regenerates again very quickly ...
@Rani NoseLike your style Rani Nose. Lol XD
@Notsosmartguy Approves of female Master Personally, i'm not happy with female Master, because as far as i am concerned, gender and identity are inextricably linked (even though some here would beg to differ).
Black Doctor however?
Bring it on!
As long as the Doctor continues to be a male character, he could be purple for all i care.
@Lord Styro the DrashigOk.
So are you suggesting then, that the Master is a woman now because that's what he wanted to be, and that he was able to somehow make that a reality?
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! Not sure you can validly back-up an argument by quoting non-canon fan-fiction which has clearly been authored by a sypathiser to your cause ...
@whovian213 has 66 seconds left to live! Surely it can't be a 50/50 chance?
If it were, the Doctor would have been a woman at least once before.

Indeed she could, but only the body. Not the gender.
@pyroclasticflow @Calebxy @onetruepurple Loving the sarcasm XD
You're right though, some here are not above suggesting as much.
@_thomasilva @The Genie @MJJ To be fair, there are many here who haven't done that yet ...

@Admin short for Administrator! @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @antimon_bush 'So because I'm a teenager my thoughts and opinions don't matter' If that is truly your interpretation of my post then maybe you should go back and read it again.
@The Genie Well David (if you don't mind me calling you that?), i was quite careful in my wording.
I did say 'many', i didn't say 'all'. Clearly, you are not one of the 'many' to whom i was referring.
The suggestion by some that i made a sweeping generalisation was simply incorrect.
And i very definitely did not suggest anyone here is 'ignorant'!
Also despite the suggestions of some others, I was not in the least bit patronising. I used the word 'young' in the descriptive sense because that's what i meant, not as an insult.
Sometimes one has to call a spade a spade. Beating around the bush doesn't really get one anywhere in a debate.
As for the 'selling' thing; while i understand your point, it must be appreciated that sometimes, there is no 'nice' way of saying something controversial; although i have noticed that you are better than most in that art ... ;)
@Admin short for Administrator! @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @Clara Bosswald approves of female Master @antimon_bush 'dismissing of other viewpoint'
Are we talking about me or you?
@The Genie @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @Admin short for Administrator! @antimon_bush 'gender-fluid' . True, but far too few to be considered any sort of norm.
And 'trans people'?
Well, you illustrate my point perfectly.
As far as they are concerned, until they manage to alter their gender, they are in the wrong body. And, once they have been able to change, they will never go back!
I say again, psychologically, gender isn't interchangeable.
@The Genie @Admin short for Administrator! @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @antimon_bushI haven't argued against equality.
I have though (perish the thought!), merely suggested that psychologically, gender isn't interchangeable.
@Clara Bosswald approves of female Master @NeutronFlow is having a gender crisis @antimon_bush Or maybe i'm not.
Maybe i just have a more realistic outlook ...
@Avor @eduardodemoura0 @antimon_bush 'Can you imagine? You love the person so much that you doesn't care'
Politically correct nonsense.
Are we all asexual now?
@antimon_bush Unfortunately, many of the noisiest posters here are all very young and have grown up during the 'excessively politically correct' era, essentially being brainwashed into thinking there is no difference between men and women.
@supermoff is waiting for heaven.... @Bored of Clara Who Interesting you should say that.
I think you have a rather short memory though supermoff, just let me jog it for you.
Here is a post of yours from yesterday ...
'Well...the Master is now a FEMALE character. FACT.'
Now this mindless immature rant wasn't part of a debate, or a reply to someone.
It was simply a trolling statement, designed to upset those who have an alternative viewpoint and cause an angry response.
Now you mention 'spiteful, hateful or just inconsiderate' in your post above.
All of which describe perfectly the tone of the text of yours I have quoted here.

@jamesanash101 @Ottoman14 I'm not sure whether seeing Grandma Bessie as a submerged skeleton in a glass tank would be any more comforting ;)
@Avor @Sirkeithgold @seearesea7 Sadly, i think you may be correct.
The spectre of political correctness seems to have won this battle ...
@mczolly @Whovian64 Sorry, What??
Having been there at the time, i'm struggling to recall the events of which you speak ...
@TheOncomingFish I guess you're referring to the throwaway line regarding 'The Corsair'?
Well, odd contravertial lines can be generally ignored and forgotten in the bigger scheme of things, much like most fans choose to ignore or explain away Paul Mcgann's statement about the Doctor being 'half-human'.
What Moffat has done is different. He has taken it a stage further, and involved a major recurring character, thus altering established truth probably irreversibly.
@Clara Bosswald still wants a Black Widow Movie Please don't rewrite history. That is simply not true.
It was nothing more than a publicity stunt.
The idea that the Doctor may become a woman was no more than a ploy to get Doctor Who mentioned in the newspapers (which were particularly uninterested in the show at the time).
While i enjoyed the episode, I am really unhappy that the Master has had the op.
Moffat has become rather too big for his boots imho.
He is the custodian of Doctor Who and as such has a duty to protect and nurture it.
He seems to think he has the right to mess with fundamentals and that makes me very concerned about how far his megalomania will go and what that may mean for the future of Doctor Who.
Good storytelling is one thing, but altering long established truths just because one can, is at best completely unnecessary and at worst grossly egotistical.
@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @MatthewTimmins 'Otherwise episodes like "The Deadly Assassin" and any other classic episode of the show set on Gallifrey couldn't happen'
Of course they could.
They all took place during the Doctor's timeline, way before the Time War and thus way before Gallifrey was Time-Locked.

@WiccadWitch True, but only in the expanded DW universe though, not in TV canon.
@Ava Averson @IanChestertonJr Neve McIntosh has used her native Scottish accent once only, during the bedroom scene in 'Deep Breath'.
All other times her character has spoken with an RP English accent.
So yes, you are right to be confused.
I'm surprised IanChestertonJnr listed her to make his point.

Or, he could be working on an algorithm to ensure there are many more 'round things' the next time the console room alters it's appearance ;)

@Americanwhovian I see what you mean, but i think that's why i rather liked it.
I thought the white/black (or dark blue, whichever) made him look a little like a waiter, a little stark.

Ok Guys, it's quite safe now.
