Default Whovians: The Doctor, She Will See You Now

BBC Reveals That the 13th Iteration of Doctor Who Will Be Played by a Woman for the Very First Time

Quote:
As promised, after the 2017 Wimbledon Tournament, the BBC made the highly anticipated announcement exactly who would be succeeding the great Peter Capaldi and playing the 13th iteration of Doctor Who. For the first time in its long history, the beguiling Time Lord will be played by a woman. Actress Jodie Whittaker of Broadchurch (Beth Latimer) and Black Mirror (“The Entire History of You“) has answered the call. Whittaker will be making her debut as the Doctor in the 2017 Christmas special.

As a lifelong fan, I have to say I can't wait. The direction the show has taken has seen it delve into current issues more and more. Most recently they had the Monks creating a fake news world where Trumpian madness is normalised. A few years back the herd mentality of technology and social media led to the rise of the Cybermen. The female Master, aka "Missy" was great. It's the perfect time for a female Doctor.

I agree, I'm looking forward to this as well. They have a new lead writer as well which I also think is a good thing as Moffet was starting to get a bit stale.

Causing a stir for some.

Loved this twit comment:

About time. I wonder who they will pick for Dr. Who's companion? "Boy?" or "Girl?". Trans, gay would be excellent. In the huge universe there are bound to be LBTQI types everywhere, perhaps even on Earth????

Pup, you just missed the girl, Bill, who likes girls. One of the saddest, yet ultimately most beautiful, stories evah.

We've had the bisexual Captain Jack, who would shag anything that moves and shamelessly flirted with the Doctor; Bill the black lesbian; the Master becoming Missy. There are also precedents of gay show-runners who queered it up more subtly back in the closeted days. It was screamingly unsubtle off screen, with the scandaloous appetites of John Nathan Turner, who looked me up and down when I reached the front of the autograph queue at a fan event in Sydney in the 1980s.

But yes, it is about time.

I see there's a new villain called "Hammond". Looks unbelievably bad.

You obviously haven't seen some of the later scenes with the Master in quite the same light we did.

Anyhoo, if Gallifreyans are not attracted to/compatible with hu-mans in a bouncy kind of way, who's to know what their sexual mores may be.
