Finally:  Doctor Who will be regenerated as a female. I love it, being an avid science fiction fan and all.

Jodie Whittaker is the new lead in this highly popular TV series.  

And yes, it does matter for trans people, and especially for male to female trans people, because such a shift goes against the traditional misogynistic ideas of women being inferior, and assigned male people who identify as women doubly so.

The regenerations scene is expected to take place in the 2017 Christmas Special.

Whittaker, 34, is British (but, of course!) and has appeared on shows such as Broadchurch and in comedy film Adult Life Skills.

My Primary Care is female, as it my Therapist and lead RN. Psychiatrist is male, but coordinates with my Primary Care, my RN, and my Therapist. I'm not certain it makes a difference in care provided, but it makes a difference to me.

All five of us are massive Doctor Who fans and we're very much looking forward to every Christmas episode. Even more so with this upcoming regeneration into the first ever official female Doctor. The kids actually don't know about it yet, so that should be a fun surprise for them.

Big Finish, an audio company who have been producing Doctor Who in audio drama format for near twenty years now, did at one point do an Unbound release in which the Doctor was female, so the concept has been tried once, just not on the main TV series. I'm curious to see if this Unbound version's theory on how the Doctor switched sex during regeneration is going to be the same for the TV one; just in case it is, I won't mention anything here.
