Honestly the thing I want to do now is watch the finale knowing the new Doctor isn't another white man. Because I watched that with such trepidation that when it finished and James asked me what I thought of it, I said I liked it but then just went on to be really pessimistic about the breadcrumbs towards a woman playing the Doctor.

I absolutely didn't trust this show not to give me another white man, and I surprised myself with how incapable I was of getting my hopes up. And my guardedness really dampened my ability to enjoy or even evaluate the last episode.

It'll be interesting to watch it again and see if what I feel about it changes. Where's my DVD box set already?! (I want to watch most of this season again, and have ever since I finished watching the episodes the first time.)

I'm unconvinced the powers that be can write a female Doctor unsucessfully. I've not seen the actress in anything to judge her ability but it's the writing I'm really concerned about.

I am, however, interested to see what they come up with - and fiercly hoping to be proven wrong and that she's a success

Maybe even some more women writers!

My next wish is for a woman as showrunner!
