Nerd rage!!!

Just kidding, I've never seen the show so I don't really have a reaction other than for a show that changes the actor who plays the main character so often, so what if a woman is playing the character now? People overreact so much to things being changed.

I have never watched the show, I do however have many friends who love it.

With no input from anyone, I think unless it is imperative to the show that it's character be gender specific, then it's about time they have a character who is female. It could either expand the character or change its character MO.

I do however understand the view of purests who hate change, especially with the success and longevity of the show. Sometimes change is necessary, sometimes it can ruin an already established show. Time and ratings will tell all.

Bravo, I say.

It's about time there was a female Doctor.

Hopefully, that means they have at least one female writer, as well.  So no longer will the Doctor's companion be the only female character ... And one who needs constant rescuing.

(though I am disappointed they killed off Misty - the female Master - before the two female characters could interact.)

I have watched the show and it should be interesting. I would love to see his wife River show up and see how she reacts.  I also didn't see the end of the last season so I have some  catching up to do. I guess i have some time to kill, so amazon prime, here I come.

I am sure somewhere sometime it will happen. For better or worse, Dr. Who as well as its spin offs have begun to cater to the lesbian and gay community.

Hello! I have heard about Dr. Who since a young age, but you will be surprised to hear that I was never attracted to the series even if I was living in England! I found it dull and it also looked pretty old-fashioned. The previous actors were talented, but it feels good to finally have a female Dr! Jodi Whittaker will certainly do a better job!
