I’m a hater. Not that I watch Doctor Who anymore so I totally don’t care, but as a classic who fan, I fail to see the point in changing a characters sex just to be PC. Alright maybe a timelord could regenerate as a women, but you do that, next the doctor will need to do the racial circuit, and before long there is no continuity with the character.
Likewise Bond should stay white. Why have a black man represent white hegemony which is what Bond is, and white is how the character is written.
I don’t mind allowing black actors etc. taking roles in historical pieces, because it’s nice to include diversity into the depiction of our history (perhaps not in lead roles as that can be confusing), but in fiction if we want women or other races in big roles, just write better new TV.
