slap my thighs with a carpet beater and call me a cynic but.....................my own worthless opinion is that this has been done simply to appease. The BBC simply wish to be seen once again as a diverse institution.....traditionalists will be turning in their tardis'. I await a new murder mystery series based on the investigations of Mister Marple.
PS..........I don't watch the Doc (haven't done really since the days of William Hartnell) so they can get on with it.
I was more of a Tom Baker fan myself but Peter Davidson is the Doctor of my era.
I'm not bothered by a Lady Doc as wherever she is she'll be able to Time Travel back and make sure my dinner is always on the table.
