For the last feels days the whole internet seems to have been going wild over the Doctor’s regeneration into a woman… simply because she’s a woman. Really?
To be honest, it got to Sunday and I was expecting everyone to be talking about the new season of Game Of Thrones but damn. I could not have been more wrong.
So, the casting directors of Doctor Who have cast Jodie Whittaker and I am one of what seems to be very few who are exceedingly excited by it. (Even of U.K. tabloids have published her nudes, she’s still amazing).
So here’s a few reasons why you should love the decision too:
She looks fantastic in the old Doctor’s outfits…
Colin Baker backs her… hitting back at sexist tweets.
We all know the stereotype of women apparently being unable to park a car decently… urm may I remind you that River Song parked the tardis better than the Doctor?
But what I loved most was Colin Baker’s response as he believes it is a result for a man with daughters.
He also tweeted this hilarious come back:
God, I love the old Doctors.
Speaking of River…
Alex Kingston offered her reaction to the announcement…
“I’m always the damn cradle snatcher but she’s a really great actress, she’s fantastic. Oh my God, that’s so exciting!” – Alex Kingston (1.14)
It has actually been said since the beginning that the Doctor can become a woman at any point – by the creators themselves.
This was highlighted in the BBC’s response to the backlash… as well as the fact that she’s an amazing actress!
But above all… she’s amazing all on her own.
Meet the Doctor
But there is one thing that we should be celebrating alongside the new Doctor…
The man who made many mistakes.
The man who was dragging the show through the mud.
