If anyone is still not convinced that a renegade Time Lord can change gender without the sky falling on our heads, consider the following thought experiments:

2) Imagine a parallel universe in which Tom Baker regenerated into Miriam Margolyes.

Consider further that their version of "the wet vet" is "the tiny Tom".
