Could A Female Actor Play The Doctor As An Unlikable Grump (And Get Away With It?)

Never embedded a tumblr here before, so let's see how this looks:

The short answer, I think (hope) is, "Yes." Will it happen? Could it be a woman of color? Could it be a woman of color who openly identifies as LGBTQ+? Well, again, I hope the answer is "yes" on all fronts.

Am I naive? I'm sure those scenarios would spark some reactionary comments from some factions of fandom ... but would it overwhelm the show or hurt the ratings, all other things being equal?
