Just recently announced by BBC, Jodie Whittaker will be the new the Doctor on the long time running show Doctor Who. She will be replacing Peter Capaldi who I have gone back and forth as liking his take as the Timelord. As for Jodie, I personally think this is great. I would have rather have had Russell Tovey take the role, but a female Doctor is something we have not had yet and I think the change could bring on a lot of new levels of story telling. I will judge this based on Jodie’s performance and I will also be curious as to how she will play the Doctor. Every actor has their own way of performing and the Doctor always seems to have a different personality when he/she regenerates. So I am curious.


However, how do other people think about this? Well…you can probably guess. If you do not want to read a lot of angry and very misogynistic posts, do not read Sci-Fi/Doctor Who forums right now. Just saying. But what do you think? Is this a good casting or not? Hey maybe we’ll get a new male companion!

Kris Marshall has been rumored to be the new actor to take on the role of our favorite Timelord, the Doctor. I see nothing but criticism and outrage by fans everywhere. Personally I want a huge change and I am hoping for a person of color or even a female Doctor. Or maybe an out gay actor like Russell Tovey to be the time traveling hero, but I know that would most likely not be the case this time around. So hearing the rumor that Kris Marshall was selected, I was disappointed. Then immediately I had to go to the Google machine since I had no idea who he was. I then moved on, because as far as I can tell, it is just a rumor right now. But others don’t seem to be doing that. I’ll give him a chance if he is in fact cast in the role, but I’m seeing some pretty darn hateful things online about this selection. I am curious, why is he such a bad candidate? I know some of you have to be Whovians and can give me better details. What is it that is so bad that every hates him so badly?

Fady-Elsayed-in-Doctor-Who-spinoff-Class

There are so few male gay characters in sci-fi. In fact there are hardly any. However, are you a Doctor fan? I admit I only became a fan after the revival of the 9th/10th Doctor – Christopher Eccleston taking the role in 2005. But I never looked back after that. Doctor has had several spin offs, a couple of the more popular series include Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Now there is another series in the works simply called, Class. Details on this show and how it will fit into the Whoverse have been very limited. Class takes place at Coal Hill school. This is the same school that Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) was a teacher. Clara was one of the latest companions to the Doctor (Peter Capaldi). One other thing is clear. Show writer Patrick Ness has made it clear that an LGBT cast member will be represented as the lead role. Ness tweeted the following:

Captain Jack

This is incredible news. The Whoverse has represented the LGBT community fairly well in the past decade and even had a pansexual character lead the show Torchwood. Openly gay actor John Barrowman played Captain Jack Harkness and was a total whore on the show. It was awesome. So I am happy that this new show will come to pass. There are so few gay male sci-fi characters playing lead roles today. Some fans may be upset, but many true Whovians will know that this is to be expected in a universe that has multiple realities and multiple possible timelines. Everything is timey whimey, wibbly wobbly. Class so far includes: Fady Elsayed (pictured above), Greg Austin, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah and is set to air later in 2016.

The Class

I needed a good laugh this morning. This is pretty good. The lady doing the Doctor is pretty convincing, although I would have liked to have seen a Capt. Jack Harkness in the mix.
