David Tennant has got his kit off quite a bit too. Should he have got his dick out as The Doctor to increase ratings too?

Idiot. So glad showing skin was the main point you got out of an inspired casting choice for Doctor 13.

And comparing Doctor Who to Game of Thrones is like comparing apples with things that are not apples.

Did you just call me an idiot, as in, a personal attack? I would have thought better of an admin.

I'm quite happy the Doctor is being played by a female actor, even more pleased she's liberal and confident enough to have appeared nude in her previous works. Hopefully the ratings for the show that seem to have tanked since Capaldi took on the role under Moffat's tired writing, will improve. I made the joke that if the ratings don't improve she can always show some skin to boost rating like they do in GoT or like she had in her previous works.

No, no she's fucking not, she's an actor. Gone are the days of sexist nomenclature, it might be a good idea to you dropped the sexist terms too.

How enlightened, the women of the world are lucky to have you around to protect them from mis-lableing. And there is the added bonus that you can also remind people of the time said mis-labelled actor got her tits out on film, because that is relevant and important. What would women do without you?

Fair enough.
Rest of the questions please, answers.

Have never got into the series, but will consider giving the new episodes a go in light of the change of cast. I thoroughly enjoyed the change of gender of Starbuck for the BSG reboot. Having powerful female main characters, including the President of the colonies, really carried that series.

Mikejay your comment that the new Dr could increase ratings by shedding clothing troubles me. Aside from the fact that you seem to dismissing her acting ability before she has even appeared in an episode if the gender here was reversed and you suggested a male actor could increase ratings by getting their dick out I would consider you churlish and a little creepy. However, because the actor is female somehow we are suppose to accept these kind of comments to be fair play. Sorry, I still think your comment was churlish and creepy, the fact that my sexual preference assumably aligns with yours doesn't change this.

Explain how "joke" is "funny".
Again, Dr Who is not Game of Thrones. Doctor Who is a sci-fi show aimed at children and families and they watch it together. That is its prime audience. Game of Thrones is fantasy medieval House of Cards with sex, violence, dragons, sex, political backstabbing and more arses than the One Nation Party and the Federal LNP combined. It is NOT for wee kiddies. Totally different audience.
So again, enlighten me. Without the condescending tone thanks.

Self-described libertarians coming up with stuff other people could do? Never a good look, Mike.

The sexism and the wriggling don't help, IMO.

... She's an actress, remember? Who acts. Different roles all the time ...
+1, Mjt!

FFS, the double standards are palpable.

If, for example, one looks down the list of Academy Award winners for best male actor, one sees in most recent years, among others, Denzel Washington, Viggo Mortensen, Matt Damon, Michael Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman, and I could go on. And on. All of them are fine actors. To borrow from Fishy: Who act. In different roles all the time. Including in some roles that are more physical and visual than others.

Oh, and that's without going all Harry Potter on you.

I'm as 'blue blooded' a boy as anyone. But the double standards shit me off.

Don't, we take pride in our ability to call a spade a fucking shovel too. If the hat fits and all that.

Id like you to answer LBA's and MJT's questions too. Do please reign in any sexism in the process because right now you are ankle deep. It's your call whether you continue to go in any deeper. There is a real reason why you have been pulled up by everyone else in this thread and if you don't understand it you need to back away from the keyboard until you do.

When you're up for it, you have some questions to answer.
