In ''Doctor Who'', Time Lords are canonically genderfluid, in that their genders can change between incarnations. Time Lords transform their bodies in order to prevent death, giving them a new personality each time they undergo this process. It should be noted that the new bodies that Time Lords receive after regeneration are usually not chosen intentionally. In addition to possibly changing sex when they regenerate, they may also change gender — in the words of showrunner Steven Moffat, "We must assume that gender is quite fluid on Gallifrey".
In series 10, episode 11, ''World Enough and Time'', the Doctor explains the Time Lord attitude to gender. Less than one month after the episode aired the BBC revealed that the next incarnation of the Doctor would be played by a woman for the first time.
