Yes, There SHOULD Be a Female Doctor






People have all sorts of hypotheticals in mind about how a female Doctor would be portrayed. Now, the official stance of this blog has always been that a female Doctor shouldn’t be written any more differently from her predecessors than a male one, that nothing of substance should really change.
Moreover, it’s always been the official stance of this blog (boy, I’m tossing around the word “always” a lot for a blog that hasn’t even been around a week) that the Doctor is in no way “inherently masculine”, whatever that means.
Now let’s prove it. Here’s what I want all my female followers to do:
Reenact a scene from Doctor Who, with you as the Doctor. It can be absolutely any scene from any era or medium.
Don’t change anything else about the scene. Try and get the costume as close as possible, get a similar backdrop.
If there are other characters in the scene with you, don’t touch their genders, so we can debunk this “the character dynamic would change” bullshit.
Put it up on Tumblr and tag it “Women of Who Reenactment Project”.
You all with me on this? Good. Now, let’s make some misogynists’ heads explode.
