British actress Jodie Whittaker, just announced
It's going to be a girl? Why?
Has it ever even been a girl before?
The Master has been a woman for all of Capaldi's run. I guess the Doctor got inspired by their friend.
No, it is a gimmick unfortunately. For me, the show ended when Sylvester McCoy left, maybe the Paul McGann audios. I think of NuWho as kind of a parody.
Good choice. Jodie's a great actress. Loved Peter Capaldi in the role. He'll be a tough act to follow.
This is interesting. The show needed some new life.
I don't understand why it is a gimmick to cast a person whose gender is the same as over 50% of the population. Now, if they cast the animated PuppyMonkeyBaby I think that could be called a gimmick.
"Still not ginger"
They need to update this. "Guy", "him"
Just saw the reveal video. Awesome, and I haven't watched regularly since Colin Baker!
The real parody was McCoy's first season, in my opinion...
Good for her and us fans. She's an excellent actress and with her youth will bring some vim and vigor. It fits in with the whole resurrection of the DR Who series as the Drs female companions have become ever stronger in their presence and importance in the show rather than just eye candy.
Not really a fan of Doctor Who, but the knowledge that this will annoy the worst people in the world makes me very happy
First the girl in the Star Wars movie, now this.
Whatever gives the stodgier wing of SF fandom big-baby tantrums,
is a good thing...and who knows, might just open their minds wide enough to
grasp fresher concepts in general!
[CLEESE]It's all part of growing up and being British.[/CLEESE]
Oh, hello, 20th century - how did you get in here...
I'm looking forward to this, she is great in Broadchurch.
I'm just happy we have a new show runner. I'm not thrilled about the new Doctor but I'm willing to give her a chance. I want to the show go on and get better if it can.
Why? Because it's about time.
Yup. She is.
Don't understand that casting a great actor (actress) is ever a gimmick.
Really looking forward to this, she is a great actor. I loved Missy so this has got to be good for the show.
Bring on Christmas
