if the water boils slowly enough the frog doesn't notice that it is slowly boiling to death. In fact in the case of the public the frog might cheer the warming water at first: ''yay we have a female doctor...look the world is getting better''...
Dr Who’s original producer was a woman Verity Lambert and the series director an Indian guy Waris Hussein.

The casting of a new Doctor has often inspired debate and speculation: in particular, the desirability or possibility of a new Doctor being played by a woman. In October 2010, The Sunday Telegraph revealed that the series' co-creator, Sydney Newman, had urged the BBC to recast the role of the Doctor as a female "Time Lady" during the ratings crisis of the late 1980s.
