Yes. But this doesn’t mean DW can’t be a male again in the future… or expunge from existence the previous 12 Doctors’ episodes.

It’d be nice for young girls to have a non -sexualised role model for a bit too, wouldn’t it? Share and share alike.

Just hope she sticks around for more than 2 years, and the new team of writers get better.
Sure she’ll be a great actress… (never seen broadchurch)

Been to the real life doctors this morning. I was eleventh in line for an emergency appointment. One of the ten when asked stated a preference for a male doctor, four asked for a woman doctor, five had no preference. So in conclusion, women doctors who might save your life, or get you time off work - good, women doctors who want to fight robots and time travel - bad. I shouldn’t have listened really.

Now that Dr Who is a woman, can Mark Gatiss stop writing fucking shit episodes?

I love Jodie Whittaker but if there’s one criticism of her casting it’s that her face is too nice. All the best Doctor Whos have weird faces. Look at Matt Smith, he looks like a horse wearing a pancake mask with two beady eye holes cut out, Eccleston like a jug/man hybrid, all the old ones look like paedos etc.

I’d have gone with someone like Fleabag or Michaela Coel.

I thought Phoebe Waller-Bridge would have been perfect, but I guess she’s already gone to Hollywood so Doctor Who is already beneath her pay grade.

It has been on the cards for years. People are flying off the handle saying “what next, Jackie Chan playing Miss Marple!!!” but this is fundamentally different. Dr Who is a fucking shape shifting alien ffs. So it has always been a theory he could be anything.

Give it an episode, people will stop giving a shit.

Exactly, it’s part of the character in the story that they regenerate. The way people go on you think they’d just decided to recast as a woman between series.

I imagine there’s a large cross over of people annoyed at this and voted for brexit.

Then get Johnny Depp to remake Rumble in the Bronx

Looking for an established, dedicated female lead for their bullshit and all they’ve got is Miss Marple.
