A little Doctor Who feminist rant!

Look, I am excited about Jodie Whittaker and there is nothing like a few on-line rape and death threats to make you dump your bio-techno SF reservations on the mechanics of gender swap regeneration and your concerns for real trans children and teens with the way it will be dealt with, but it isn't a female Doctor we need. Okay, across countless platforms and 55 years (the book series are not mentioned here but I can only think of 3 female writers off the top my head across Target, Virgin and BBC) I can count on the fingers of one hand the female writers. Where are all the women writers?! I came yey close twice to being published, how many more of us also didn't smash our way through the DW low glass ceiling for writers?
