So the big news today is that the 13th Doctor will be Jodie Whittaker (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2092886/), our first female Doctor. I am binge watching Broadchurch today in order to get familiar with her
I have no problem at all with the idea of a woman playing the Doctor, outside of the idea of finding the Doctor attractive, which does feel a little odd after a life time of male Doctors. I am ready to see what direction they take this change and how this alters the dynamics of the series. There is no doubt this is a big change that will attract attention, both positive and negative.
Everything I have seen so far personally has been people all for this and ready for a female Doctor. Of course that is the crowd I associate with. I have heard reports that I do not find surprising, just disappointing, that there has been those who have a negative reaction to this news.
Found this pic for anyone looking to read comments about the casting:
Regretfully chances are real good that you could get bingo in no time at all on twitter today.
Hopefully the new series will be here next year and we can see how effective a female Doctor can be.
