People are having yet another discussion about whether Doctor Who's roving time-traveler could regenerate as a woman — and apparently the show's original creator, Sydney Newman lobbied for a female Doctor in the mid-1980s, as a way of making the show fresh again.

So it's a great moment to appreciate this lovely art, which translates the whimsy of the Doctor perfectly into a set of Time Ladies. This is the work of Gladys at Rocket Surgery, who has a ton of other great fan art on her Tumblr. Here are the five most recent Doctors:

Okay, I'm really not sure why there's this constant interest in seeing gender swapped versions of well known sci-fi and fantasy characters. It seems to be a real thing, at least here on i09. The first time I found it very mildly interesting, but that's all, and it was forgotten five minutes later. The second time it seemed like someone was just copying someone else's idea they saw on here, but now it's been many times and I realize it must be some whole...'thing,' I don't know what to call it.

I honestly don't understand the fascination. Is it a fetish thing? Is it some sort of trans-liberation thing? Is it something else I'm just not not fathoming because my brain just doesn't have to piece that is supposed to find this fascinating?

As for a future doctor being female? Sure, why not? Didn't either Matt Smith's or David Tennant's Doctor say something hinting that it was possible, like looking in the mirror and saying, "still male, I see." Something like that?
