Better writing? I mean if changing a gender is the best way to fix a show then the show probably just needs cancelling. I’m not particularly complaining here as I quit the show a few years back when I concluded that new who was basically Buffy the vampire slayer in space.
@shamrockgooner - by PC I guess I meant equal opportunities. Just like the casting of Richard of York in the Shakespeare series a few years ago as black. I’m fine with it when its an adaption or a rebrand etc. as they equate to different versions, but not when its a long standing franchise.
