For some this marks the last episode of a great series. Bringing back the First Doctor almost underlines the fact that it's ending, before a new series starts with some woman in the Tardis. Yes, she might be great. The series might be also. But it's as if after the above special the new series will be a remake/adaptation/spin-off. For some this may be the best way to see it.

Well, at the risk of being called arcane (which I'm not), Dr. Who is based nowadays and for some time past on the myth of Hermes, the winged messenger, the encircler of time and space, a hero/redeemer myth where the redeemer saves the worlds by looping back in time and undoing the past. Sonic screwdriver = Hermes's staff.

This means he has traditionally swapped between the two incarnations of Hermes, namely the young, laughing magician and trickster (Tennant etc.) or the ancient sage (Hartnell). But he hasn't yet been the hermaphrodite (product of the union of Hermes and Aphrodite and resolver of opposites), nor has he been a woman. As a shapeshifter (Mercury), this should be part of his repertoire.

He's not Apollo, he's not a mere action hero, he's the orderer of chaos and the entropizer of order. Unpredictable. Eccleston is a good actor, but he was not Dr. Who for that reason.

I suspect a more mischievous embodiment might have been in order, like Missy, but the idea is sound.

Green Wing was almost unbelievably good and "Susan White" was one of the highlights.
