**"Anyway, there's a living Time Lord still out there, and it's one of the good ones. ... The mark of the Corsair. Fantastic bloke. He had that snake as a tattoo in every regeneration. Didn't feel like himself unless he had the tattoo. Or herself, a couple of times. Ooo, she was a bad girl." --The Doctor, ''The Doctor's Wife'' (S06E04).
* '''The Doctor''' is the protagonist and hero of the show, and has been played by 12 male actors. In July 2017 the BBC revealed that the thirteenth Doctor would be played by Jodie Whittaker, a woman.<ref>''"[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-40624288 Jodie Whittaker: Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord to be a woman]"'', BBC News, 16 July 2017.</ref>
** The twelfth Doctor said about Missy, "I think she was a man back then. I'm fairly sure that I was, too. It was a long time ago, though," ''(S10E11)'' - so it would be reasonable to assume that the Doctor had been another gender than male prior to this moment.
* '''The General''' led the Time Lord military, and has been female for most of their incarnations. In ''The Day of the Doctor'' the General is male, but dies in ''Hell Bent'' (S09E12) and regenerates into a woman and is relieved.
** "Oh, back to normal, am I? The only time I've been a man, that last body. Dear Lord, how do you cope with all that ego?" --The General, ''Hell Bent'' (S09E12).
