I know I'm about to anger both sides of the argument with my TN opinion here, but here goes.
The New Doctor: Jodie Whittaker
While personally I'd rather The Doctor remain male, I am a fan of the show first and foremost and as long as the show keeps delivering quality content and the actor playing The Doctor keeps delivering a quality performance, The Doctor's gender is irrelevant to me.
I don't normally ask this of complete strangers, but please keep my father in your prayers. He is in the hospital battling both a serious infection of the heart and the after effects of a Stroke that happened at an unknown time in the recent past. I'm really going through a lot right now and I need all the support I can get.
May your father get well soon. My thoughts are with you as well.
If you ever feel like more talking about it, we have a thread for such serious matters:
You did inform us about this serious situation that your father was in and you did ask for support. Not everyone may feel that they can find the right words to support you in such serious circumstances. So the forum reaction is actually a way of showing you support without words. Some will do both, because they want to show their support in words and in form of a forum reaction. On this forum, we have used the insightful reaction in this way for years when somebody needed comfort.
You are not benefiting from your father's condition by getting forum reaction off it. Nobody here would think that. And to be blunt, in the situation that your father is in, this should be the least of your worries, in my opinion.
If the insightful reaction is a burden to you then I will gladly remove mine too. But please consider that it was just meant as an additional gesture of comfort and sympathy by everyone who has given it to you.
And now let's concentrate on your father again. Let us know when you have news about his situation. My best wishes.
