The 13th Doctor Will Be Jodie Whittaker (I’m Sure No One Will Be Upset)

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!

  1. The idea of Russell Tovey playing the Doctor in Doctor Who would work only if Russell Tovey’s Doctor was both gay and wearing as little clothes as possible all the time! Wow!

  2. YAY!

    I am very excited about this. We’ve seen before that Time Lords/Time Ladies can regenerate into different species/genders, so why not the Doctor?

    Personally, I feel the actress will do a terrific job, but I’ll reserve final judgement after I see the show properly. Still, this is good news! 🙂

  3. It’s about time! I can’t wait to see what Jodie will bring to the role. I wasn’t much of a fan of this last season of Doctor Who so I’m glad we have a new Doctor. It’s a shame that Melissa Gomez left the role of Missy. It would have been a lot of fun to see the new Doctor up against Missy. I read some of the comments and those who are against it really are not fans of Doctor Who. It’s always about change.
