It will be interesting to see if they attribute the falling or rising TV ratings due to the new writer or to a female taking the lead as Dr. Who, or both. I watched the original Dr. Who a very long time ago and always found it very boring.




The general consensus is that this was due to problems with the writing, rather than Capaldi's portrayal, but the end result is the same: less hype for Doctor Who, and fewer people watching the show. However, with Steven Moffat stepping down as showrunner and veteran series writer Chris Chibnall taking his place, Whittaker's Doctor could potentially see the series returned to its former glory.

He could have come back as Han Frickin' Solo and saved Solo.

No, they'll blame Whovians for being misogynists. Haven't you learned from watching the Ghostbusters and Star Wars debacles?

With a pansexual Lando in tow....SMH screw SJW Wars...

No doubt they’ll be called a “toxic fan base” as well.🤦🏻‍♂️

Maybe Captain Baldy from Star Trek can save the show, he is English after all.

Where the eff is Tom Baker when you need him?

They only way to create a strong female lead is to cannibalize an established male character? Is that some form of character rape?

And those of the left cannot see the irony or the hypocrisy?

He's at home. Washing his scarf.

I loved Tom Baker. My favorite Doctor although Tennant gave him a serious run for his money. I have 4th Doctor Pop on my desk at work.

This is wrong. Have they forgotten all the doctors before her. They were and are TIMELORDS, the emphasis on lords not ladies. What if they made Darth Vader a woman, Darth Vaderess.
This happened in the French revolution when a woman (Marie Antony) got too big for her boots.
Get the pitchforks out and the knitting needles.

The screenplay I'm working on is an interpretation of the Civil War, and Abraham Lincoln is portrayed as a young, Hispanic, handicapped woman.

The BBC Board of Directors obviously think it is time for the new establishment of a strong female lead.

I've seen the commercials. She looks very watchable. I've never seen the show but am aware of the mystique. I don't think this will harm the franchise.

Doctor who was a woman last season.
Seriously, did anyone not notice?

They really dropped the ball since Tennant.

Why not a middle-aged White woman with many accomplishments?

Nah, it's got nothing to do with the title.

There have been female time lords. Doctor traveled with Romana through a couple seasons. She was established to be a Time Lady, had her own sonic screwdriver, and regenerated.

It will at least be watchable if after the regeneration, the new Doctor looks down, peers into her pants and shrieks "WTF! Shiiiiiittt".

And I thought the whole role of the lead supporting female actress was to highlight the human characteristics and compassion a biter single alone Time Lord could not obtain, or lost.

It will be interesting to see if Doctor Who will survive messing with its successful formula?

The recent writing formula has not been successful hence the change.
