Doctor Who: Would You Like A Jelly Baby? by MangoSirene Doctor Who: Would You Like A Jelly Baby? by MangoSirene
My jelly babies bring all the Doctors to the TARDIS.
Not all of them are sure why Four likes these gummies so much...
Must be the chalky deliciousness.

At C2E2 last April, my friends and I collaborated to make one of our dream cosplay groups a reality: a full group of genderbent Doctors! Doctor Who is a series that is close to all of our hearts, and naturally, we got to thinking of how the show would be different if the Doctor was a woman. We all picked our favorite Doctor and came up with a genderbent interpretation - it was so incredible to see everything come together!

I have to give a shoutout to these amazing ladies. All of them are so passionate about costuming and fandom, and they really put their hearts into making this group happen. I felt so honored being able to spend the day surrounded by my closest friends, celebrating a series that has done so much for science fiction and geek culture as a whole.

Not to mention being dressed as female Doctors felt so empowering. We had several people come up to us on the convention floor and tell us how inspired they were to see a male cultural icon like the Doctor represented by a woman instead. And that, I think, is one of the highest compliments any cosplayer can receive; that a costume inspired and empowered someone else. It was hugely flattering to hear and I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day.

This was, by far, one of the most amazing cosplay experiences I've ever had in my life. I love everyone in this TARDIS!

You ladies did amazing! I would've loved to have seen you in person. I myself have been planning on cosplaying as gender-bent versions of a few of the Doctors, so I shall definitely use this as inspiration.

Not particularly. Gender bender cosplay and cartooning is fun, but making the Doctor a woman in canon just takes one more brainy male hero out of the universe, and there are few enough of those. For equality, we have plenty of women to chose from. Captain Janeway; Kate Becket (teamed with another great beta male); Temperence Brennan (I don't like Booth much- he's an alpha); Detective Benson- the list goes on.

People keep saying there should be a female Doctor, but the truth is, this is just political pandering, and most female fans would rather not see it. Why? Because he is a man for us.
James Bond is an alpha male hero, but I've never met a woman who chose to watch a Bond movie on her own- it's always with a guy who wanted to.
For ourselves, we want our beta male hero.

>implying the only reason people would want to see a female Doctor is due to political reasons rather than wanting variety or equal representation
>implying the only reason women watch Doctor Who is because the lead is male rather than actually enjoying the show
>implying the only reason the Doctor is male is to attract a female audience
>implying women can't enjoy a show with a female lead
>implying that all renditions of James Bond follow a conventional alpha-beta breakdown
>implying that because you haven't met a woman who likes James Bond, they clearly must not exist

You wanna try that again?

What are your thoughts on the possibility of a female Doctor? The recent minisode pretty much opened the door for it to happen someday.
