How about trying out Series 10, which has Bill Potts, a black lesbian?

How DW became "an exercise in concentrated misogyny" when Clara was allowed to become an essentially immortal cosmic adventurer (which is apparently allowed when it's the Doctor, but not for a woman)... sorry, I don't get it. (All the anti-Moffat examples you can give me, I can give anti-RTD counterexamples, so let's not get into it here. And since you're apparently anti-"Heaven Sent," which I considered stunning work that had a lot of psychological resonance for me... nah, forget it.)

As I said, I really liked the finale of Season 9, and at least part of my dislike of the rest of that season was the fact that Season 8 was all about The Doctor being portrayed as Clara's abusive and controlling ex, and never remotely getting called on this behavior (and I also find Capaldi annoying enough that "Heaven Sent" really didn't work for me).

I've heard positive things about Season 9, but I've got enough bad feelings about Moffat & Moffat + Capaldi that I seriously doubt that I could give it a fair shake.

Dude, I don't know if you mean to be, but you're coming off as really combative and also condescending. Really not everyone is going to agree with you about NuWho and you can't intimidate them into submission.
