OK, three episodes, that'll do. I've seen enough to know what I need to know.

The writing was on the wall a couple of years ago when a Galifreyan general morphed from male to female and expressed
A) delight at being "back to normal", and
B) disgust at having been male.

Tick one PC box. It's OK to hate as long as you hate male.

Every Doctor prior to the new one has expressed some level of disappointment upon regeneration... not ginger, wrong colour kidneys, whatever. Every Doctor prior to the new one has required time to settle and adapt to each change of body/personality.
This new doctor, however, is completely delighted and is fully fit and competent straight out of the traps, reinforcing the already stated doctrine that female is better.

Tick a few more PC boxes for the demographics of the "team": The only white male character is a moron who stands around looking confused while everyone else instantly understands everything and behaves heroically.

It's not just about changing the Doctor into a female, it's using that plot device to express hatred for males. If the aforementioned General had been originally female and been as delighted to change to male and been as ashamed of his previous sex, the very same politically "correct" cowards celebrating this despicable show of blatant racism and sexism would be rioting, burning and looting in the name of equality.

And last weekend's episode? A white racist in the 52nd Century not only exists - puh-leeeease! - but has travelled all the way back to the mid-20th to stop a black woman protesting on a bus, just so the showrunner can denounce racism (as long it's anti-black racism... the other kind is fine). Give me a feckin BREAK!

And the acting's crap, too.
