I feel the same about the post David Tennant bad scripts and bad acting... although I liked Peter Capaldi he had only just been able to drag it back up in the last series with Bill before it was over.
I hate the gender swap and have no interest in watching it. So many people online were so busy being on the 'its a strong woman in sci-fi' band wagon they seem to completely miss the point. It's a woman playing a strong male character, not a strong female character... of which there are plenty in sci-fi already.
What's wrong with starting a series about a new female timelord? or if they aren't brave enough to do that, bring back Susan!
