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!
