Piers Morgan as companion?

As far as I'm concerned, my only objection would be if there was a lack of a plausible in-universe explanation (as in "oh, look, The Doctor is suddenly a woman"), but with the events of the last couple of series it's clearly been set up as a possibility. Hopefully they'll get over the "oh my, what am I supposed to do with these things?" phase fairly quickly and give her a decent chance to fill out the character.

I'm alarmed by how badly large portions of the population are taking this. Between the questioning of how an immortal alien can look like a woman all of a sudden, to not understanding "doctor" to be a gender neutral title, it's properly mental. Do most people get violently fingered in the arse by big burly women as a child and I just got lucky, so I'm not privy to how scary women actually are?

There is usually smoke blown up peoples arse when the doctor changes (the only person I don't remember it happening with is Capuldi) I wonder how much of this is that, just viewed through the lens of 'because they are a woman, it must be sexism'.

I think Doctor Who is popularist swill that can't remember its own cannon for more than an episode (shouldn't this doctor be the Valeyard?) so I can't say I care that much what they do creatively.

I don't know about this. Last I heard the ratings have been in long-term decline and most of what I'm seeing is reactions to a minority to score sassy points with a certain crowd. The whole fiasco looks like vagsploitation and even when I haven't seen the show in 10 years it is starting to get my back up.

I would've started watching again if it was Tilda Swinton or someone of a similar caliber

Rage button ticked because I foresee myself getting a ton of shit for this for no reason.

My suspicion is if she pulled a big cock out of her trousers during an episode there would be even more complaints.

People aren't that rational or constructive in why they like or dislike things. It drives designers crazy, usually people can't constructively phrase these things and look for ways to rationalise their irrational feelings, and no it isn't just tripping over their dicks to come up with a reason why they aren't sexist, usually people just don’t like change, paticularly if they feel it is change just for the sake of change and they want to find a better reason than just that.

There is an argument for 'can the doctor be a woman?' that isn't pure sexism, they obviously changed the cannon in the last series so that the master could so the answer is: yes. But if they randomly gender/ race swapped a character in a piece of media you liked normally you might be a bit miffed, the fact that the doctor seems asexual and lacking in machismo most of the time probably helps it to be an irrelevant point.

There is also the concern that the makers become hung up on the fact that the doctor is a woman, from what I understand of the lady Thor comic book they can't help but talk about it constantly in a way that detracts from them telling a story about anything other than that Thor is now a woman and how you should get over it.

I honestly couldn't give shit either way. It's like when they didn't cast that black fellow as James Bond even though he'd have been perfect.

However I can see why people might not like it. I mean the only counterargument is "why shouldn't she be a woman?" to which the only counter argument is "well why should she?" It' sort of like, you've been eating your sunday roast with mash and gravy for years. Why on earth shouldn't you put curry sauce on it? There's absolutely nothing wrong with curry sauce but you can't blame someone for wanting to stick to their gravy. The point is that we've had 13 dudes, which sort of sets a precedent. Lots of people were annoyed that they even made him look younger than 40, remember?

I think the shitstorm has much to do with virtue signalling and what I can only describe as the rapidly growing "fuck off you sanctimonious twats" movement. I mean lets face it we're leaving the EU for precisely the reason that people are sick of hearing everything and the kitchen sink getting called racialist and rebelled.

Apparently mentally ill people don't like being called mentally ill. I literally hate myself for typing this - it is this kind of political correctness around words that stops us having grown-up conversations about mental health. Describing yourself (or others) as mentally ill should be equivalent to saying I've got a cold, or the flu, or I sprained my ankle.

Not really, mental health has a stigma for a good reason because it can mean that you are a danger to yourself and to society at large. Obviously not all mental illnesses are the same but there is a reason we associate manics with violence, schizophrenics will paranoid destructive behavior, depressives with wallowing and self destruction, and autists with actually caring about doctor who canon.

I'm saying this as a person who has friends and family crippled by all of the above. In all seriousness I've had to deal with manics and depressives who have used being open about their problems as a way to absolve themselves of guilt for their shitty behavior and lack of self control, and people think they are helping by being 'understanding' and shifting the burned of their behavior on to everyone in their path, but this is tacit to abuse. Your cause is more short sighted than you think.

I agree an openness about depression for the introverted is a positive as it is for anxiety, and any learning disorder where people need to admit they fall short would be a benefit and there are plenty of milder cases where it would be relevant, but you can't treat all mental illnesses as being helped by people being accepting and open, and like it would always be of benefit to the problem, sometimes the best thing is for people to feel they should solider on and strive for a life of managing normality without drawing attention to themselves and people moving the bar to excusing their failures.
