Doctor Who: An Alternative History of 11 American Female Doctors

A little while back I explored the idea of Doctor Who if it had been an American institution instead of a British one, complete with American actors as the famous Time Lord. It was a good bit of what-if that I'm still very proud of.

Recently, I had some fans ask me to revisit the concept one more time, but switching around the gender. Could we picture The Doctor as an American woman over the last 50 years of travel in time and space? I say yes we can, because some of the choices are just perfect.

So once again into the alternative dimension machine, and let's see where the Tardis takes us.
