I don’t really care much about remakes, though, the originals are still around so just watch those instead. Regardless of what they do to the main characters I tend to just ignore Hollywood’s remakes these days.

A lot of people agree with you but for me it completely depends on the execution. The new Ghostbusters had different characters and jokes and it made me laugh. The Judge Dredd remake was an actual movie instead of a silly Stallone vehicle. I haven’t seen True Grit yet but it is supposedly really good.

I don’t avoid things just because they carry the same name as other things.

You’re going to need that Stallone version in about ten years when you finally get to ROTR. 😉

I think there was a movie where Sherlock Holmes was a woman. Can’t recall if it was period set or modern times. Might have been a tv movie or a pilot though.

Well, the show Elementary did this with DR Watson, I presume this is what you are remembering?

When I first saw this show I thought it was being done for the same reasons that warbler seems to think the DR who thing is. But since then I picked this show up again and really enjoy it.

Never actually seen that. What I’m thinking of is much older. There have been so many takes on Holmes, it’s hard to keep track. I forgot Tom Baker played him not long after hanging up the scarf.

I think a female doctor might have been a tougher sell in 1982 when Baker left the show.

Well it clearly didn’t happen in modern times because the internet didn’t get all silly about it.

People still could have written angry letters to Tv Guide and or the network in crayon though.

I was just reminded of this never aired pilot.
Starlog magazine mentioned it a few times, but apparently it’s never been seen by the public.

I’m sure the fans who forget Chewie’s family is canon independently of the Holiday Special will piss and moan over this. 😉

Making Owen Anakin’s brother in law and Beru Luke’s maternal Aunt would have been a heck of a lot easier.

Ok, let’s try and keep this civil and non political. If I have to lock a Dr. Who thread I’m going to feel rather embarrassed about it.

I’m sure this will all be forgotten when Rifftrax does The Five Doctors next month. 😉
