Quite possibly the worst doctor who story in any medium, sexist and transphobic.

So, the Doctor has been exiled to Earth and has been forced to regenerate into a Woman as punishment for trying to commit suicide. What's Nick Briggs trying to suggest here? That being a Woman is punishment? Also, it's weird when you hear two different people playing the Doctor who aren't known for playing the Doctor, yet David Tennant is in this and he isn't the Doctor!? Why is one of his previous incarnations appearing to him in a mirror anyway? So, the Doctor is a woman who binge drinks and constantly burps. God, this is awful, and packed full of cheap laughs.

This is a certainly a story that gets a lot of flack. While it does have it's flaws, it has some great moments, and when Arabella Weir gets to the heart of The Doctor's character, she pulls it off with aplomb.

While The Doctor and a her friends are heavy drinkers, the hangovers and vomiting that accompany it are more than what was necessary, they could have been toned down while still getting the idea across.

A shout out goes to Toby Longworth and David Tennant for their excellent portrayal of timelords in this story.

On the whole, this is a story with a wonderful conceit (The Doctor being so terrifying that he flees from his trial and hides on earth), a strong lead actress with a role that shines despite some weaker material, this story should at least be listened to once, and not completely avoided.

The doctor is a drunk women. Funny at times but to much burping and throwing up.
