    Doctor Who ... is a woman!

    The next star of Doctor Who has been announced after intense speculation and the person stepping into the role of Time Lord is Jodie Whittaker.

    She is the first woman to take on the role, playing the 13th Doctor. Whittaker, who rose to fame in Broadchurch, had been touted as one of the contenders.

    Boring choice of bimbo. Francis De La Tour would have hit the spot for me, fabulous character.

    And the knuckle draggers within the male species are already up in arms about it. They also seem to forget that Dr Who is an Alien that regenerates and changes form, there is no reason why Dr Who can not regenerate to be a female Dr.

    I think it is fantastic

    apparently being opposed to this is sexist, so I'll just pretend that a character who has been male since the 60's suddenly changing gender for no better reason than "its about time" is a great thing (which I don't think it is)
    do I dare disturb the universe?

    Francis De La Tour would have been great, and given the roll some gravitas, as well as re-affirming the BBC as a giant of world television ............. but I don't watch it anyway so what do I know?

    I stopped watching when Capaldi took over and nothing has inspired me to resume.I dont own a tv and the license now applying to iplayer on pc ill see non of it.There are better actresses around better suited for the role.Since Catherine Tates character partly became the Dr when it was Tennant I would have loved to see her take the role....I do however get fed up of tv producers doing this kind of thing ie changing gender of a perpetually male character because it -gender- is currently a topic being discussed in the wider world.
    Hebridean at heart..everywhere else is just somewhere on the way back there...

    Since the character regularly reincarnates into a new body; I cannot see why changing gender is any less logical than changing into a new, male character.
    If men bore wings and had black feathers, few would be intelligent enough to be crows.

    no, its because time lords have have never been able to change gender until the idea was crow-barred into the mythos recently. Also its because the doctor is a male character.

    Not really, there is no logical reason why time lords can not change gender, it is good that outdated ideas are being challenged and there will be a female Dr

    Essentially, a bunch of Broflakes are moaning because they do not want to see a female take over, it was the same with Ghostbusters. I think these sad pathetic men need to move out of their parents basement
